Add some sweetness to your traditional roasted potatoes with a cinnamon stick broken into 3 or 4 pieces.




  • 1 1/2 pounds gold or yellow fleshed potatoes, scrubbed
  • 6 unpeeled cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken into 3 or 4 pieces
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 325oF. Cut potatoes into 1 1/2 inch chunks. Stir all ingredients in a 10 inch cast iron or other heavy skillet until everything is coated with oil.
  2. Put pan in oven and roast 1 hour and 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Stir one or two times during roasting.
  3. Remove pan from oven and raise heat to 450oF. Take garlic cloves from the pan. Return pan to oven and roast and additional 15 minutes or until potatoes are crusty and brown on the outside. Check oven toward the end of the roasting time to avoid over browning. Remove pieces of cinnamon stick before serving.
