Easy roast potatoes with garlic and parmesan
When it comes to potato recipes, the crispier, the better. That is especially the case with these delicious roasted garlic parmesan potatoes. This incredible recipe is made with a bunch of spices along with butter and plenty of Parmesan cheese. You quite simply cannot go wrong!
The taste of this recipe is something else. I love to pair these potatoes with any main course like chicken or ham, as well as a vegetable or salad. These tender potatoes wind up crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They complete any meal, and they’re by far one of the most delicious ways to add carbohydrates (as well as some fiber, potassium, calcium, and vitamin C, ) to your meal.
Ingredients in roasted garlic parmesan potatoes
When it comes down to ingredients, this recipe keeps it pretty simple. Apart from the potatoes, you’ll only need butter, garlic, parmesan cheese, and the seasonings!
- Mini potatoes: First up for this recipe, you will need 3 pounds of mini potatoes. Any type of small potato should work well, such as red or yukon gold potatoes. Russet potatoes will be too large — stick with the smaller varieties.
- Butter: Next, you will need one stick (1/2 cup) of melted butter.
- Garlic: Add some delicious flavor with three cloves of minced garlic. If you want to use garlic powder, use 1/8 tsp per clove (3/8 tsp total).
- Parmesan: Parmesan is a must in this recipe. Use 1.5 cups of grated parmesan. It will be divided for use in two separate parts throughout the recipe.
- Seasonings: Finally, add additional flavor to the garlic and parmesan potatoes by including some seasonings. You will need 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of pepper, 1/2 tsp of oregano, 1/2 tsp of smoked paprika, and 1/2 tsp of onion powder. Feel free to lower the salt to 1/4 tsp if you’re aiming for low sodium.

How to make crispy parmesan roasted potatoes
Crispy roasted potatoes with parmesan are one of my favorite sides. First, the prep time is only about 10 minutes, making the total time land at around an hour for prep and baking. Second, their flavor makes them the perfect side dish — yummy and filling!
To begin making this recipe, preheat the oven to 425°F and grease a 9×13″ glass casserole baking dish with olive oil or butter. You can also use a baking pan if needed. Spread one cup of grated parmesan cheese evenly into the bottom of the dish.
Slice all of the mini potatoes in half, and then add them to a large bowl. Then, add the butter, the remaining half of the parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, and onion powder. Stir everything together until it is all well combined.
Once combined, pour the mixture into the casserole dish. No need to place the potatoes cut-side up or anything; we want them to cook all over and will be tossing them partly through the recipe.
Bake for 30 minutes and then toss and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the potatoes become golden brown. Optionally sprinkle extra parmesan, fresh parsley, black pepper, thyme, or fresh rosemary on top!

Should you boil potatoes before roasting them?
No need! Though it may be required in some recipes, it isn’t required for this dish.
Why aren’t my potatoes getting crispy?
If your potatoes aren’t getting as crispy as you’d like, consider upping the oven temperature by about 15-20°F or soaking them prior to cooking (see next tip).
Why does soaking potatoes make them crispier?
Soaking potatoes in water removes some of the starch, allowing them to get crispier when cooking. If you’d like to soak your mini potato halves prior to adding to the bowl with the butter and seasonings, feel free! Soaking for ~30 minutes should do the trick.
Store any extras in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to about 3 days. Reheat in the oven or in an air fryer to restore the crispiness!
