Here are the ingredients you will need to make garlic parmesan roasted potatoes:

  • red potatoes – russet or Yukon gold potatoes can be used as well.
  • garlic powder – fresh minced garlic can be used as well. Be sure to mince garlic finely so it coats well to the diced potatoes
  • grated parmesan – parmesan will bring nutty and salty flavors to our potatoes. Use freshly grated parmesan for best results – invest in a good quality parmesan cheese… it really makes a big difference to the end product. Parmesan that is finely grated will more easily coat the potatoes. If parmesan is shredded into long pieces, use a knife to chop it up into finer pieces.
  • paprika – or smoked paprika. This brings a smoky flavor to the garlic parmesan roasted potatoes.
  • salt – this will also help open up the flavors
  • olive oil – or any neutral oil such as vegetable oil, avocado oil etc
  • fresh parsley – used as garnish

How to make Roasted Garlic Parmesan Potatoes

Preheat oven: Start by preheating your oven to 425°F. This ensures that your potatoes will roast evenly and develop a crisp exterior.

Prepare the potatoes: Wash and scrub red potatoes to remove any dirt. If desired, you can peel them, but leaving the skins on adds extra texture and nutrients.

Dice the potatoes into bite-sized pieces (1-2 inches), keeping them roughly uniform in size to ensure even cooking.

Season the potatoes: In a large bowl, toss diced potato with olive oil, garlic powder, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika and salt. Make sure the potatoes are evenly coated with the seasonings for maximum flavor.

Bake in the oven: Spread the seasoned potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Avoid overlapping or overcrowding potatoes. If doubling the recipe, you’ll want to bake in two separate baking sheet.

Aluminum foil and parchment paper prevents food from sticking, and also makes cleanup a breeze.

Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy on the outside.

Garnish and serve: Once the garlic parmesan roasted potatoes are done, transfer them to a serving dish and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

Serve hot and enjoy the lovely flavors and textures of these roasted garlic parmesan potatoes.

Oh come to me, yumminess!

These roasted garlic Parmesan potatoes are soft and warm on the inside, and crispy, garlicky, and smoky on the outside. And delicious to the MAX.

I’m one of those people who love ketchup and put it on everything. I especially like to eat most of my potatoes with ketchup. But with this Roasted Garlic Parmesan Potatoes, they are so flavorful and cripsy, I don’t need ketchup! THAT is how yummy this is.

Tips and Tricks

  • Cut potatoes evenly: to ensure even cooking, cut the potatoes into uniform-sized pieces. This helps them roast at the same rate, preventing some from being undercooked while others are overdone.
  • Customize the seasonings: instead of smoked paprika, you can also use other herbs and seasonings such as Italian seasoning, parsley, rosemary etc.
  • Use aluminum foil or parchment raper: Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil and parchment paper to prevent the potatoes from sticking and make cleanup easier.
  • For extra crispy potatoes: make sure not to overcrowd the baking sheet. If necessary, use two baking sheets to ensure that the potatoes have enough space to roast evenly.
  • For more even browning: flip the potatoes halfway through the roasting time. This ensures that both sides get crispy and golden brown.

Storage and Reheating

Storing leftovers: If you have any leftovers (which is rare because they’re so delicious!), you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Reheating: To reheat, simply place them on a baking sheet and warm them in a 350°F oven or toaster oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through. Cover with aluminum foil if needed. Avoid microwaving them, as this can make the potatoes soggy and no longer crispy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use other types of potatoes?

Yes! Yukon gold or russet potatoes work well too. Cook temperature and time will be the same.

Do these potatoes keep and reheat well as leftovers?

It keeps well but I do recommend reheating in a toaster oven or oven to make it crispy again (see reheating instructions above). Reheating them in the microwave does not give it the crisp but works as well.
