Why You’ll Love Parmesan Potatoes
- Super easy to make
- Delicious side dish for dinner
- Lots of parmesan cheese
- Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!
You only need a few simple ingredients to whip these potatoes together.
- Potatoes: The star of the show! I like to use tiny gold potatoes for this recipe because they turn soft and buttery as they bake. Red potatoes would also work!
- Olive oil: I use this in place of butter because I prefer the flavor.
- Parmesan: Use a crumbled parmesan for this recipe. Shredded or shaved won’t stick as well.
- Herbs and Salt: I suggest a combo of dried oregano and salt to keep things simple, but you can totally spice it up! Basil, parsley, thyme, either fresh or dried would all be delicious. If you use fresh herbs, I suggest tossing the warm potatoes after baking with the herbs so the herbs don’t over cook in the oven.
For the full instructions, complete with measurements, please see the recipe card below.
- Preheat the oven and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Slice each potato in half. Then, score each potato with a hashtag, making sure not to cut all the way through.
- Coat the potatoes in olive oil, salt, and herbs.
- Dip the cut side of each potato into the parmesan.
- Place cheese side down on the baking dish.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes. Enjoy!
You can flip the potatoes over for the last 5 minutes of baking and turn on the broiler for an even crispier potato!
While they don’t need any sort of dip, you can totally use ranch or ketchup or a balsamic glaze on top of them.
How to Store
These parmesan potatoes are best served right out of the oven.
They will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat them to enjoy!
