How to make garlic parmesan roasted potatoes
To make these potatoes, you can use any potatoes of choice, but I love using red skin 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, lots of 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 halfway through the roasting point to make sure all the sides get that crisp 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!
Tips for making garlic roasted potatoes
- Opt for best roasting potatoes like Yukon gold or red skin potatoes. That’s because their skin is thin, they’re not waxy and they’re not too starchy.
- Heat the pan before placing the potatoes on it. To make it easy, just place the pan in the oven while the oven is preheating. This way the potatoes hit a sizzling pan, which helps get a crispy texture.
- Leave space between the potatoes. Don’t over-crowd the pan, but instead try to keep them in a single layer to allow these garlic roasted potatoes to roast evenly and perfectly.
- Don’t flip until the potatoes are golden brown on one side. This helps to make sure they’re golden all around without flipping them too often and risking them getting poked and damaged in the flipping process.
Frequently asked questions
Can you make garlic roasted potatoes ahead of time?
You can totally prep these garlic roasted potatoes in advance and have them ready to be roasted 30 minutes before dinner time, just so you can tempg everyone with that savory garlicky cheesy smell oozing from the piping hot oven!
How do you keep roasted potatoes from being soggy?
It’s best to serve these roast potatoes straight away, but if you do need to keep them warm, do not cover them, this can cause them to lose their crunch. If you need to reheat them before serving, re-roast them in a hot oven for 10 minutes until crisp.
What are the best potatoes to roast?
My go-to potatoes for this recipe are red skin potatoes. Roasted red skin potatoes have such a beautiful presentation and they get nice and crisp on the outside. Yukon golds are also an excellent choice and will actually give an even more crisp texture.
