Parmesan Roasted Potatoes


I feel like I could probably create a whole other blog strictly dedicated to all things birthday party and cake batter, but I’ll move on to some side dishes for you.

Sometimes finding a good side dish to go with your meal can be difficult. I’m probably super old school in the fact that I think a dinner plate needs to consist of a main dish, a vegetable, and a starch. One of my favorite starches is a potato.

Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

They are so extremely versatile, that I always make sure to have a big bag on hand.

These Parmesan Roasted Potatoes are so delicious because they taste like crispy little french fry nuggets covered in parmesan cheese.

I used baby gold potatoes, but I have used red potatoes before and they work just as great for this recipe.

I like these little gold potatoes because they’re so small. I cut these guys into quarters, but if you’re using larger potatoes just make sure your wedges are all roughly the same size, this will help to make sure all of your potatoes are cooked evenly.

My favorite thing about this recipe is how easy it is. After you cut all your potatoes place them in a large zip close bag and add a little olive oil. Then shake the bag to coat the potato wedges.

Toss in some breadcrumbs, italian seasoning, a little salt and some grated parmesan cheese.

Shake, shake, shake.

Once the potatoes are evenly coated with the mixture lay them out on a lightly greased baking sheet and they’re ready for the oven.

These tasty little tater wedges come out crispy and perfect every time.

I love the golden brown crunch that these Parmesan Roasted Potatoes get around the outside.

It’s completely irresistible.

{I also love to make these super easy homestyle buttermilk mashed potatoes when I’m in a pinch for a side dish.}

Serves: serves 6
  • 1 pound baby gold potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 tsp olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  2. Combine cut potatoes and olive oil in a large zip close bag and shake to evenly coat the potatoes.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and shake to evenly coat again. Place the potatoes in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet, discard any left over coating.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, stirring the potatoes at least once half way through. The potatoes should be golden brown and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

    Found these yesterday, made them today! Awesome. I pared them with homemade meatball sandwiches and used Marinara sauce as the dip (instead of ketchup). Wonderful, keep them coming!

  12. Made these last night Shawn, totally delicious! Loved by all.
    I also made your Avocado dip at the same time… Dipped my ‘tato’s in and mmmm doubly fantastic! It’s a keeper 😉

  13. Made these to go along with steaks tonight. Really easy and really fabulous. The plate was licked clean. Will definitely make again.
