Balsamic Garlic Roasted New Potatoes are the perfect savory side with baby potatoes roasted in balsamic vinegar, rosemary, and garlic.

New potatoes or baby potatoes are the perfect base for a simple side dish. I love using them because they’re filling and comforting like classic Roasted Red Potatoes but have a slightly different texture and flavor to make the dish a little more interesting. This is the perfect potato Side Dish that you can quickly throw together for a weeknight dinner. The roasted baby potatoes would taste great with an easy dinner like Grilled Pork Chops, or Instant Pot Chicken Breast.

Sabrina’s Balsamic Garlic Roasted New Potatoes Recipe

My Balsamic Garlic Roasted New Potatoes is such a simple recipe to make. All you have to do is toss the mini potatoes in the flavorful garlic balsamic glaze and spread them out on a baking sheet to pop in the oven. It takes a few minutes to prep, then you can work on the rest of your dinner while the roast for 50 minutes. Simple sheet pan side dishes like this one are the best because they’re always easy and give the perfect flavor and crisp-tender texture. Besides these crispy potatoes, you can also try our Roasted Broccoli and Roasted Green Beans for more simple veggie side dishes. 


  • 2 pounds Baby New Potatoes: These small potatoes are perfect for roasting due to their tender texture and quick cooking time. You can use red, white, or yellow varieties for a colorful presentation. New potatoes are harvested early, which is why they are smaller in size and have that classic taste.
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil: Olive oil adds richness and helps coat the potatoes evenly, ensuring they roast to perfection and develop a crispy exterior.
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar: The sour and sweet balsamic vinegar is the main flavor component in this recipe because of its bold and distinct taste.
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt: Kosher salt not only seasons the potatoes but also helps draw out moisture, resulting in a crispy outer layer as they roast.
  • ½ teaspoon Coarse Ground Black Pepper: Black pepper adds a subtle heat and enhances the overall savory flavor profile of the dish.
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Rosemary: Fresh rosemary lends aromatic herbal notes to the potatoes, complementing the other flavors in the dish beautifully.
  • 2 cloves Garlic: Minced garlic infuses the potatoes with a rich, savory flavor as they roast, elevating the dish to a new level of deliciousness.

Kitchen Tools & Equipment

  • Sheet Pan: A sheet pan is essential for roasting the potatoes evenly in the oven. Choose a sturdy, rimmed sheet pan to prevent any spills or drips. Line the pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  • Large Bowl: A large mixing bowl allows you to toss the potatoes with the seasonings and oils thoroughly, ensuring even coating before roasting.
  • Chef’s Knife: A sharp chef’s knife is indispensable for halving the baby potatoes and mincing the garlic and rosemary. Make sure to use a stable cutting surface and exercise caution while handling sharp objects.
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons: Use measuring cups for liquids like olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and measuring spoons for spices like salt, pepper, and herbs.
  • Tongs or Spatula: Tongs or a spatula are handy tools for flipping the potatoes halfway through the roasting process. Choose heat-resistant tongs or spatula suitable for use in the oven.
