Sesame Falafel with Ginger Tahini and Jalapeño Sauce.
These Roasted Mixed Potatoes with Spring Herbs and Burrata are kind of all you need in life today.
So very dramatic, but so very true, because let’s just be real, we all know that potatoes are possibly one of the best foods around. Especially when roasted…and especially when paired with burrata cheese.
Basically this recipe needs no introduction. Just reading the title, makes my mouth water. These are potatoes, but slightly elevated and dressed up for spring and this is maybe one of my favorite recipes to come out of my kitchen this month.
Did I say that yesterday? Probably, but it’s always true.
Just like yesterday’s tart, this is yet another failed recipe turned into to something amazing. Not sure what’s up with all the recipe fails this month, but I’m happy to say I was able to take the fails and make something new, fresh, and better from them. I guess I really do learn from my failures…well sometimes anyway.
And moving along…
When my family and I were in South Korea, we headed to Seoul for a couple of days of exploring. We actually did this in batches as some of us left earlier than others, but either way, we all had the opportunity to try the incredible street food that Seoul has to offer.
If you didn’t know, Buzzfeed recently gave Seoul the title of The Best Street Food In The World and while I really can’t say if this is true or not, seeing as I have not been to all that many places, I can say that Seoul’s food scene is pretty insane. The dumplings? Noodles? Soups? PANCAKES?! All so good! I knew I would want to try and recreate some when I returned home, and the first thing on my list was potato croquettes.
Potato croquettes are oddly a French food, but we found a bunch of crazy flavored croquettes on the streets of Seoul. When I attempted to make croquettes at home however, it really didn’t go so well. For one, I’m just not a huge deep fry person, so that part wasn’t fun. And two, they just weren’t that awesome. I was over them pretty quickly, and already on to brainstorming new potatoes ideas while still working on the croquettes…
And that’s where these potatoes come in.
They have nothing to do with Korean food, but oddly, that is what inspired them. Makes zero sense, but then when do I ever actually make sense? Not too often…especially when texting. Yikes.
I knew I wanted a potato recipe for spring and for upcoming Easter. It needed to be simple and I knew I wanted to use lots of herbs. I also knew I had two balls of fresh burrata cheese in my fridge that practically had the words “serve me with roasted potatoes” written all over them. Promise, they did.
And then these happened with mixed potatoes, lots of lemon, fresh herbs, and a very generous amount of fresh burrata cheese. If that doesn’t sound good to you, I am not sure we can be friends.
Kidding, but I mean, not really.
I used a mix of potatoes, mostly because that’s what I had on hand and didn’t feel like heading to the store. At first I thought using all baby potatoes was what I wanted, but in the end I loved the variety of shapes and textures from the different potatoes. It makes every bite slightly different and exciting (yes, potatoes are exciting).
For my herbs, I used fresh dill, basil, and chives. Very light and springy, but they pack an herby punch. I also threw in some lemon for a little zing and then piled on the burrata, which is of course my favorite part. The pairing of the crispy roasted potatoes with the creamy burrata cheese is one that’s too good not to try. It’s the perfect mix of crispy to creamy and it’s so good.
Serve these as side dish, maybe even an appetizer, or hey, just be like my family and eat them for dinner. That works too.
To sum it up, if you need a new potato recipe, this needs to be it…end of story.

PS. definitely make these for Easter this year, these have Easter Sunday written all over them.
Making this for Easter tomorrow. wondering if I could put my asparagus with this as well and if so add it later in the roasting?
Sure, that would be just fine for you to do! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx
So delish! Store was out of some items. Instead of burrata I broke up a wheel of Boursin and used parsley in place of dill. Served with chicken sausage. We LOVED the mix of potato textures. Possibly in our Top Ten meals now! Thank you!!
Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad it was enjoyed!! Have the best week:) xTieghan
I added some crisp pancetta to this *chefs kiss*
Happy Friday!! Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try, I am so glad to hear it was a winner:) ?xx
I live in a small town and can’t find burrata anywhere! One store in town finally brought some in ($13 for one burrata!!), so I searched your site for a good recipe using the cheese and found this! Made it tonight and between my husband and my 4 year old and myself we ate enough potatoes for 5 people! Amazing recipe!
Happy Sunday! I love to hear this recipe was enjoyed and I truly appreciate you giving it a try! You can always use fresh mozzarella in place of burrata:) xxTieghan
I just made these and they are to die for!! Perfect for spring! I call them my Greek Potatoes because of the lemon and dill flavor. Can’t wait to make and eat them again!!
Awesome!! I am so glad this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for making it! xTieghan
WOW! Looks SO GOOD!
I’m not surprised that somebody used one of these pictures in his Facebook “cooking” page, without giving any credit!
This is the page… if you want to act somehow:
I suspected he was not the author… and I landed here! My luck! 🙂
Thank you so much for letting me know, Romina! I am happy you found my page as well haha! xTieghan
I made these potatoes for my Birthday Brunch (because I don’t trust my family in the kitchen lol!) to go along with the food I had catered from a local french cafe, it was a HIT! They were gone in about 5 minutes, my family was drooling over and raving about them! They even said it was the best thing on the table and even liked it more than the catered food! Thanks for this incredible recipe! ♡
Yum! I am so glad these turned out so well for you, Summer! Happy Birthday! xTieghan
So delicious! I added a bed of arugula to this and it added a nice bitter punch which we all loved.
Thank you Marie-Renee! xTieghan
Where do you get your buratta cheese? I’m in Illinois and it’s either not here or known by a different name. Thanks!!
Hi Karen! I get it at whole foods because they have a larger cheese selection! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you! xTieghan
