How to make garlic parmesan roasted potatoes
To make these potatoes, you can use any potatoes of choice, but I love using red potatoes and keeping the skin on them.
Wash the potatoes well, dry them and then cut them into quarters and place them right in your baking dish.
Then just toss them with olive oil, minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese and dried thyme (or Italian seasoning works really well) and they’ll be ready for the oven.
Give a a good stir or two when it’s in the oven to make sure all the sides get that crunch factor. Then you can pair this easy side dish with anything you’d like, or just dip them in some ketchup and call it dinner if you want! Haha

Yeah, everyone will pretty much be able to smell the garlic from the driveway. But that’s a good problem…right?!
