Rosemary Roasted Potatoes with Roasted Onion Crema

I seem to find inspiration in the strangest places.

I was asked by a friend of mine who is a caterer If I would help her cater a large 50th birthday party. We needed to come up with several deliciously good, one-bite appetizers. As I sat at my kitchen table munching a bag of sour cream and onion flavored potato chips that my son had left in the pantry , I had begun pulling out an array of cook books looking for some brilliant ideas for this party.

Half-way through this bag of terribly fattening chips it hit me what a great combination potatoes and sour cream and onion is.  I make these Rosemary Roasted Potatoes all the time, especially for our Thanksgiving dinner, but for this one-bite appetizer I decided to add a flavorful Roasted Onion Crema dipping sauce.

I have found that the Peewee Dutch Yellow Potatoes from Melissa’s Produce work best for this dish, but if you don’t have access to this product Yukon Gold’s are also a good choice.

Mama’s Tips

You can use “spears” of rosemary to act as a toothpick for the potatoes.  Just pull off an inch or two of the rosemary leaves and push the branch part into the potato.

When roasting vegetables, make sure that they are all the same thickness and size to insure even roasting. Smaller pieces may burn, and large ones may not cook all the way through.

  1. I love that you got inspiration for this incredible recipe from a bag of sour cream ‘n onion chips! That’s the Husband’s favourite chip – we almost always have a giant bag in our pantry (which gets polished off far too quickly). These photos are incredible, Sheryl. The styling is so chic and elegant! Needless to say, I LOVE potatoes (heck, I love all carbs) and this flavour combo is a clear winner.

  2. Gorgeous presentation. Too often often one bite appetisers are expensive and over the top. This is a nice economical one to mix in with some fancier ones and I bet those that come hungry and expecting dinner will appreciate this tasty filler.

  3. I love little roasted potatoes and your roasted onion crema sounds like the perfect dipping sauce! I am awed by: 1. The way you took such a simple food and turned it into gourmet elegant! 2. The way you captured the gourmet elegant in your photos! I have a food blogger pot luck coming up and I think I will be a show-off and figure out a way to bring this! Thanks, Sheryl!

  4. your recipes are very practical and seem easy to prepare. I shall try this out. However, I always give the vegetables a light boil before baking or grilling.

  5. It’s a good thing you have several fabulous photos of the many ways to serve this killer app, because the one at the top, depicting three individual portions are mine. Right?

  6. You know? I can NEVER make my potatoes look this AMAZING! What is your secret to them looking so well put together? My potatoes always come out looking so sad:/ lol

    1. I think roasting them on a high heat is the trick, and sprinkling them with some paprika also gives them good color. But be careful not to over-roast them either.
