Can I Make This Garlic Roasted Potato Dish Ahead?

This garlic roasted potato dish is actually a fantastic make ahead meal.

You can do most of the prep work beforehand (tossing the potatoes along with the other ingredients) and then just store the potato pieces in an airtight container. Simply add in a bit of olive oil with the potatoes and they’ll stay fresh in the fridge for a few days until you’re ready to roast them.

How to Store Leftover Garlic Roasted Potatoes

You’ll first need to allow your leftover garlic roasted potatoes to cool completely if you’re planning on storing them. Transfer the leftovers into an airtight container and seal them up tightly before storing in the fridge for up to 2 to 3 days.

You can also freeze the potatoes. Cool completely and then flash freeze on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then transfer the potatoes into a freezer-safe ziploc bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
