Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes

School is out for the summer!  Woot woot!  I loved being able to turn off the school alarm at 7:45 am.

But I always forget how much my kids eat when they are home all summer.  We go through food like crazy.

My oldest son is turning into the ‘I am always hungry and eat everything in site’ stage.  I think that boy could even out eat me.   He is getting so tall and big and going to be a teenager before I know it.

I really have to start getting creative with the meals that I make for them and I am especially always on the hunt for good sides.

One thing that my boys love are potatoes with their meals.  By the time I prepare the main course I love just throwing together an easy side and letting it roast in the oven with our meal.

We love, love, love the parmesan garlic flavor combination at our house and it made these potatoes fantastic!

I was able to put them right in the oven and they were ready in about 15 minutes and were the perfect compliment to our dinner.

I love to roast my veggies in the oven because I love how they get a nice crisp edge and have a tender center.

The parmesan garlic flavor was awesome on top of these potatoes and they became our favorite new side!

This is a recipe that we will be making again and again!

What you need to make roasted potatoes

  • Red potatoes- cut into 1 inch pieces. Baby red potatoes are what I used.
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese- grated
  • Cloves- minced
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley- chopped for garnish

How do you make roasted potatoes?

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly spray a [url:1]baking sheet[/url] with non stick cooking spray.
  • Mix– In a [url:2]large bowl[/url] add the olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic, and oregano.
  • Toss with the potatoes until coated and lay in a single layer on your baking sheet. Salt and pepper to taste. I also like to sprinkle additional parmesan on top.
  • Roast for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Serve with parsley sprinkled on top.

Do you have to use red potatoes?

You don’t! This method will work with any potatoes, I just prefer the sweet, soft texture of the red potatoes. Plus, I love how crispy the skin gets!

Try these potatoes too!

  • Yukon potatoes
  • Russet potatoes
  • Baby potatoes
  • White potatoes

Hot oven

So the key to crispy potatoes is a HOT oven.

If you roast them at a low temperature, it will take too long for the exterior to brown, and the inside will get mushy.

Also, it’s important that you use a large sheet pan.

You really don’t want any of the potatoes touching during the cooking process. If they do, you risk steaming the potatoes, instead of roasting them, and you won’t get the super crispy exterior we all love!

Easy Substitutions

There are several ways to try these Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes.

You can’t go wrong with these substitutions.

  • Parmesan– swap out parmesan for asiago, pecorino, or romano.
  • Potatoes– swap out Yukon gold potatoes for russet, red or even fingerling.
  • Olive oil– if you don’t have olive oil, canola or peanut oil will work well.

Tips for making roasted potatoes

  • I recommend not peeling the potatoes. The best part is that thick, crispy crust to enjoy after baking.
  • Cut red potatoes in half, leaving the skin on.
  • Baby potatoes take less long to bake.
  • Add potatoes to cold water, cover and place in the refrigerator. This will help from keeping them turning brown.
  • Soaking your raw potato wedges in hot water for 10 minutes before baking helps give the wedges more of a crispy outside.

  1. These were pretty good. I think next time I’ll add more garlic or garlic powder and some onion powder as they were a little bland. Though that could have been on my part; we didn’t have red potatoes so I used Idaho and ended up making a double batch so we’d have an easy side for a few days. Instead of parsley I ended up sprinkling some garlic salt on top. Still tasty and will be making again – especially surprised how soft they came out. Will be yummy with eggs for breakfast 😀

  2. I made these last night. They were delicious! I cooked them in the same pan as the balsamic marinated chicken I was making. Great!

  3. the Parmesan potatoes look wonderful but I am wondering about preparing and cooking them on the grill. Can I use this same recipe to cook them on the grill or what should I do different?

  4. I need help!!! every time I’ve tried this recipe (I’ve tried it 3x) the potatoes come out dry. Any tips?

  5. This looks really good, but I think I may try it with Schwan’s mini potatoes & see how it comes out.

  6. Alyssa, this sounds delicious. I just started playing with an air fryer and I think I might try to do these potatoes in that. Sweet potatoes came out good last night.

    1. I don’t have a cookbook but I do have an ebook out that you are welcome to look at for free and I have newsletters that I email out each week for all my followers that sign up. Thanks so much for your love and support for me! XOXO

      1. How do I get to see the ebook? I think I already signed up for the newsletters but not sure so I’ll sign up again. I love these recipes especially ones like that of the different kinds of potatoes or anything different than mashed lol my family has expressed in a harsh tone that they’re sick of mashed potatoes (me too) . I would love any ideas on that and the chicken. Trying to get off so much red meat. Thank you
