I was inspired to make Wizarding World Roasted Potatoes this month when the Baking Bloggers challenge this month was baking with potatoes. When we visited Universal Studios Hollywood, we ate at the Three Broomsticks in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We really enjoy their food.
The roasted potatoes are a side dish for many of the meals at the Three Broomsticks. They were tasty, crisp and delicious. My version turned out amazing, we’ve made them multiple times already and plan to make them again soon!
This month the #BakingBloggers are “Baking with Potatoes”. We were asked to create a recipe where the only requirement is that we bake with potatoes. I’m excited to see what everyone has come up with for this challenge as potatoes are one of my favorite foods!

Wizarding World Roasted Potatoes Recipe
- 4 lb. red potatoes
- 8 Tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped
- 1 Tbsp. salt
- Preheat an oven to 375°F.
- Slice the potatoes into thin slices using a knife, mandolin or food processor.
- Brush the bottom of a large cast iron frying pan with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Arrange the potato slices next to each other in a circle pattern, overlapping slightly. Fill the entire pan, including the center.
- Pour the remaining melted butter over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt and fresh chopped rosemary and thyme.
- Roast the potatoes until the edges are browned and crispy, about one hour.
- Take the potatoes out of the oven and let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Serve directly from the cast iron pan.
