Roasted Duck Fat Potatoes

  • Author: Tonja Engen



  • 2 pounds small yellow potatoes (I used Klondike golden yellow)
  • ¼ cup duck fat, melted
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 thyme sprigs


  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss together the potatoes, duck fat, salt and pepper. Lay thyme sprigs on top.
  2. Roast for 30 minutes, then reduce oven heat to 350 degrees. Continue to roast until potatoes are fork-tender, another 15 to 25 minutes. Remove thyme and bay leaves and serve around roast or in serving bowl.
