Sticky Teriyaki Glazed Potatoes


Roasted baby potatoes are one of my go-to side dishes. Most of them time I like them to swim in garlic, herbs, and olive oil. This combination is a no-fail and seems to fit in with most meals I make. However, as I was making a pork loin one day I couldn’t help but long for something more. I decided to take inspiration from teriyaki sauce and create a sticky glaze for the baby potatoes. The salty and sweet combination had my family dipping everything at the dinner table into the leftover glaze in the serving dish.

Sticky Teriyaki Glazed Potatoes

This teriyaki inspired glaze is not only good on potatoes but on pork loin as well! It is sticky, sweet, and addicting!



  • 1 1/2 lbs yellow baby potatoes, cleaned and halved

  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce, low sodium

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 1/4 c scallions chopped


  • 2 Tbsp garlic minced

  • 1/2 c water

  • 1/2 c soy sauce

  • 2 Tbsp sweet rice wine

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1/2 Tbsp corn starch


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.

  2. Place the potatoes in a glass baking dish. Drizzle the olive oil and soy sauce over the potatoes. Then season with the salt, pepper, and sugar. Give the potatoes a good toss to coat.

  3. Place the prepared potatoes into the preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Until they begin to brown and are soft when pierced with a fork.


  1. Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl whisk together the garlic, water, soy sauce, rice wine and honey.

  2. Add the contents of the bowl to a saucepan over medium to low heat. Bring to a simmer.

  3. In a small cup add the half tablespoon of cornstarch to a tablespoon of water and mix (do this before adding to the saucepan!) then whisk the cornstarch/ water mixture into the simmering pan.

  4. After about 5 minutes you should see the mixture thickening up. Remove from the heat and reserve

  5. When the potatoes come out of the oven pour over the glaze and mix the potatoes to coat. Then sprinkle the scallions over the top and serve.
