  • 500 g (1.1 lb) baby potatoes - all roughly the same size so they cook evenly See Note 1
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil See Note 2
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon polenta - finely ground
  • sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper - to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C (390 F).
  • Line a sheet pan with baking paper.
  • Wash and thoroughly dry the potatoes.
    Add the potatoes to a large bowl, along with the oil, rosemary and polenta. Season with salt and pepper. Toss well to combine and ensure the potatoes are coated evenly.
  • Turn the potatoes onto the sheet pan, ensuring they are evenly spaced.
  • Place the potatoes in the oven and roast for 25-40 minutes. (The cooking time will depend on the size of your potatoes.)
    After 15 minutes, turn the potatoes over and return to the oven until they are golden brown and evenly cooked.
  • Put the potatoes in a serving bowl and serve immediately.


  1. Ensure your baby potatoes are a similar size so they cook evenly. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the potatoes.
  2. In Australia, the tablespoon is 20 ml or 4 teaspoons. In many other countries, the tablespoon is 15 ml or 3 teaspoons. Please adjust your measurement if necessary.
