Roasted Garlic Potatoes

The original recipe called for a stick of margarine. We have cut this to 3 tablespoons, and are using a no-fat or low-trans fat margarine with around 8 grams of fat per tablespoon (kosher versions are available). If you want to make half a recipe, pour the potato mixture into a 9-inch, deep-dish pie plate and bake for the same amount of time.


  • 4 pounds small new red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed (if you use larger red potatoes, just cut them in half)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed (dried)
  • 1 whole garlic bulb; separate the cloves and peel them
  • 3 tablespoons no-fat or low-trans fat margarine (with 8 grams fat per tablespoon), melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, tossing to coat the potatoes well.
3. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish and use a scraper to scrape all the margarine and seasonings from the sides of the bowl, drizzling over the potatoes in pan.
4. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours or until potatoes are cooked throughout and lightly browned.
