  • Sheet pan


  • 1 1/2 lb Honey Gold Potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 t. Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 t. Onion Powder
  • 1/4 t. Garlic Powder
  • Freshly Ground Pepper

Herb Sour Cream

  • 3/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 t. lemon zest
  • 1 t. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro, loosely packed (or a small handful)
  • 2 tbsp Basil, loosely packed (or a small handful)
  • 1/4 t. Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 t. Honey


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut potatoes into 1 inch chunks. For Honey Gold Potatoes cut in half lengthwise and then cut each side into fourths.
  • Put potatoes in a bowl. Toss with olive oil, spices and salt until evenly coated.
  • Dump potatoes onto a sheet pan and evenly distribute across the pan.
  • Roast until outsides are crisp and insides are creamy around 25 minutes. Broil on high for 2 to 3 more minutes until crispy. Watch the potatoes as you do this. The broiler is very hot and can easily burn your potatoes if you forget about them.
  • While the potatoes are roasting make your herb sour cream. Put all your ingredients into a food processor and blend until all herbs are well processed. Serve alongside crispy roasted potatoes.
