Herby Baked Potatoes

A very easy dish to prepare and goes well, as a side, with almost anything. We had this last night with chicken and mushroom pie and onion gravy. Delish!!


Serves: 4 (as a side)



4 large Potatoes, cubed

1 large Onion, diced

2 cloves of Garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon Olive Oil

1 teaspoon Sunflower Oil

1 teaspoon melted Butter

½ teaspoon dried Parsley

½ teaspoon dried Rosemary

½ teaspoon dried Marjoram

½ teaspoon dried Oregano

½ teaspoon dried Thyme

½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika

Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste



  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  2. Add the olive oil, sunflower oil and butter to a roasting pan.
  3. Add the cubed potatoes, onion and crushed garlic to the pan and sprinkle all the dried herbs and paprika over this.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste and toss everything together until well combined.
  5. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are just turning soft.
  6. Serve with freshly baked pie or your favourite joint of meat.





About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
