Here are notes about some of the ingredients needed to make these parmesan potatoes . For the full ingredient list and instructions see the recipe card below.
- Potatoes: Red potatoes cut into 1-inch chunks will work best, but you could use russet potatoes if you wanted.
- Olive oil: A good quality olive oil is always going to be your best bet and will provide the best flavor.
- Parmesan cheese: Grated parmesan cheese works great and coats the potatoes nicely.
- Rosemary: Fresh rosemary is best for this. It will provide the most flavor and color.
- Salt & black pepper
- Garlic powder
Step by Step Instructions
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
STEP 2: In a medium bowl, combine the potatoes and olive oil. Stir well to fully coat the potatoes in the olive oil.
STEP 3: Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to coat the potatoes.
STEP 4: Transfer the potato mixture to the prepared baking sheet. Spread them out in an even layer with as much space as possible.
STEP 5: Roast potatoes in the prepared hot oven for 30 minutes, stirring them halfway through.
STEP 6: Remove them from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Serve immediately.
- Try to cut potatoes into uniform shapes and sizes so they roast evenly.
- Be sure to line your baking sheet or you will have potatoes stuck and a mess to clean up! If you don't have parchment paper, use aluminum foil.
- Garnish with rosemary sprigs and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and/or flake salt, if desired.
- Be sure to spread the potatoes out in a single layer so they have space to get crispy.
- If rosemary isn't your favorite, try other fresh herbs like thyme or fresh parsley.
- Try seasoning with 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning in place of the fresh herbs.
I really recommend using fresh rosemary sprigs for this. I think it provides the best flavor. If you don't have access to fresh rosemary, you could substitute dried rosemary. I would use 2 teaspoons of dried rosemary in place of the fresh rosemary.
You can roast pretty much any potato, as they are all quite tasty. For this recipe, I would say red potatoes, Yukon gold potatoes or russet potatoes would be best.
There is no need to peel the potatoes before roasting them. The red potatoes have a thin skin that is actually full of nutrients. All you need to do is thoroughly wash the outside of the potatoes before cutting them.
Storing and Freezing
Store cooled leftover potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, warm them in the microwave or pop back into a 400°F oven or air fryer until heated through.
Freezing is not recommended for this recipe.
