Leave potatoes whole if small; halve them if they are small to medium; cut the potatoes lengthwise into halves, then quarter them, if medium sized. For larger potatoes, cut into eight wedges.

For crispier, more flavorful roast potatoes, roast on their own and place the water in an oven proof dish by the side and place a rosemary sprig in the dish with the potatoes. Remove rosemary before serving.
