Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes
Potatoes are such party pleasers! Roast them in the oven for a crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside texture and your dinner party guests will be beyond pleased! This Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes recipe is my go-to side-dish recipe when I’m having Italian theme dinner at my house. I’ve made it easily 15 times since I’ve been married (which is basically when I started cooking).
I think it’s one of the best potato side dish recipes ever and here’s why:
- It uses staple ingredients that everyone has… [check]
- After the potatoes are cut, it’s takes 30 minutes only to roast [check]
- It pairs well with so many dishes! [check]
You can totally prep the Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes in advance and have it ready to be roasted 30 minutes before dinner time or your guests arrive, just so you can kill everyone with that savory garlicky cheesy smell oozing from the piping hot oven! Yeah, everyone will pretty much be able to smell the garlic from the driveway. But that’s a good problem…right?!
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. When the Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes come out of the oven, I like to garnish them with fresh chopped parsley right before I serve. 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
