Baby Potatoes are one of my favorite potatoes and these Garlic Potato Christmas Trees are just too cute not to share.

So simple, but it looks wonderfully Festive and ever so Merry Christmas.

I had seen something similar on a local magazine’s sit. However, the actual recipe was not so much to my liking.

I decided to make one of my stand-by recipes, which I just about always use when I want simple, delicious Baby Potatoes.

Garlic and Rosemary always make a nice combo, especially when cooking or baking potatoes – baby or plain potatoes.

Our store was sold out of the usual nice Baby Potatoes and I had to settle for less. But it does not matter, the potatoes were still delicious and I think kids would love to see them on their plates at Christmas.

I only sliced the bottoms off a few of the Baby Potatoes (to form the base), as most of them stayed upright even with the second potato stuck on top.

Tip : use short but firm Rosemary sprigs to insert on the top, then everything will be done in a matter of minutes. (the Sprigs do not go straight through both Baby Potatoes – the toothpick keeps them together)
