Roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes



  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced
  • Additional salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place potatoes in a large, shallow baking pan.

Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat butter over low heat until melted. Continue cooking until butter turns a light golden brown and has a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and set aside.

Remove potatoes from oven. Pour the browned butter over the potatoes and sprinkle with brown sugar and green onions. Stir to coat potatoes evenly in the butter and brown sugar.

Return to oven for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and golden. Season with salt and pepper, if needed, before serving.
