Parmesan and Herb Roasted Potatoes

Growing up my mom used to roast potatoes at least three times a week.

Now that I’m a mom I know why.

Parmesan and Herb Roasted Potatoes - Easiest potatoes ever and packed with so much flavor! Olive oil, herbs, and everything is better with CHEESE!! A family favorite that everyone loves!

They’re easy, inexpensive, hearty, they complement almost any dish, and warm potatoes are the ultimate in comfort food.

For this version I tossed baby Dutch yellow potatoes with olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, a little salt and pepper, and parmesan. Everything is better with cheese.

So easy, packed with flavor from the herbs, spices, and parmesan.

I love yellow potatoes when they’re roasted and I like the baby size because they’re faster to chop but another variety of yellow potato like Yukon Gold or your favorite roasting potato would be fine choices.

My family devoured these and it reminded me I need to roast potatoes more often.

So easy and lots of clean plates.

Parmesan and Herb Roasted Potatoes

Roasted potatoes are easy, inexpensive, hearty, they complement almost any dish, and warm potatoes are the ultimate in comfort food. I tossed baby Yukon Gold potatoes with olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and parmesan. So easy and packed with flavor from the herbs, spices, and parmesan. I love yellow potatoes when they’re roasted and I like the baby size because they’re faster to chop but another variety of yellow potato like Yukon Gold would be another good choice.

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds baby Dutch yellow potatoes, halved (Yukon Gold potatoes or your favorite roasting potato may be substituted)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or line with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.
  2. To the baking sheet, add the potatoes, evenly drizzle with olive oil, and evenly sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and toss potatoes with hands to coat evenly. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes. Baking briefly before adding the cheese ensures the potatoes will cook through before the cheese burns.
  3. Remove pan from the oven, evenly sprinkle with the parmesan, and bake for another 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly golden brown, fork-tender, and done.
  4. Garnish with parsley before serving. Potatoes are best warm and fresh.

  1. These look fantastic and would go with anything! Jon and I love any roasted tuber and any kind of cheese. Looks like I have a couple of fun recipes to try this weekend!

    • Roasted veggies or tubers, with the addition of cheese, you cannot go wrong! LMK if you try these!

    • These are fantastic (and Jon loves fingerling and baby potatoes)! The parmesan and Italian seasoning is excellent and I had some nice little browned cheese puddles on the baking sheet (love those). I have to give a little nod to the silpat liners–I’ve used foil on my pans but the silpat is better–nothing ever sticks to it.

      • Silpats are awesome, aren’t they! And so are little browned cheese puddles! Something about browned cheese…it can be so good! Glad you guys enjoyed the spuds!

  2. These look so good. They would definitely upstage anything else at the dinner table! The next time I’m making fish, these are going on the side!

  3. My mom roasted potatoes on the reg too! They’re my favorite side dish because of that! Although she never added Parmesan, and I am most definitely thinking I need to try this version! Cheesy goodness please! Pinned!

  4. I’m in potato heaven! I love potatoes and these look absolutely delicious. 
    Gonna have to run to the grocery store now to stock up on more potatoes. :)

  5. Averie, I am also coming from a family addicted to roasted potatoes, my mom used to make them a few times a week, and now I make some at least once a week, they are such an easy side dish, and you can play with the flavors so much, the parmesan addition is definitely a good idea!

  6. Wow these look tasty!  That golden cheese is where it’s AT!

  7. These potatoes look amazing! My mouth is watering just thinking about them!

  9. Yellow potatoes are my favorite! Love that parmesan and herb topping. The best!

  10. These look so delicious! I love potatoes because you can prepare them in so many ways – and every recipe make them taste so differently. Roasted are my favorite so I will definitely try these!

  11. Growing up in an Italian family we seldom had potatoes…I think we had roasted potatoes maybe 3-4 times a year if that…so I’m more than ready to make up for that shortfall growing up…these look insanely good can’t wait to try.

  12. Yummy–will definitely try these.  Thanks for the recipe.

  13. Truth. Cheese does make everything better! We had potatoes a lot growing up, but I’m always looking for ways to spice them up. Yum!

  14. Those look amazing! Potatoes have to be my favorite veggie, I love all the different ways you can serve them. Your recipe looks super delicious.

  15. Three words: so.hungry.now!! :P

  16. I think potatoes have gotten a bad reputation in the “nutrition” world, which is unfortunate–there are so many ways to cook them that are healthy and tasty–this is definitely one of them!

  17. I completely agree, potatoes are one the the easiest and cheapest foods to make! Great for a family :-) these look so yummy!

  18. Well these look amazing! Pinning, stat.

  19. mmmmm these pictures have my mouth watering-I looove potatoes!

  20. I served this as a side dish to go along with the Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers with Tzatziki Sauce I found over on reciperunner.com . These were absolutely yummy and the perfect accompaniment. I couldn’t resist using some of that sauce on these potatoes, but they are absolutely yummy all by themselves. Definitely be making these again. So simple, so delish!
