Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

Garlic.  CHECK

Potatoes.  CHECK

Parmesan.  CHECK

Oh how I love a good roasted potato especially in the cool months ahead.

As a kid we ate potatoes by the bag full.  My grandmother made the smoothest, creamiest mashed potatoes I have ever had.

In the mornings she would make fried potatoes with onions for our breakfast.

She added potatoes to her soups, her roast dinners and served little red boiled potatoes.

I think it may be our English/Irish heritage by we love any potato: red, yellow, gold, brown.

As an adult I try to limit how often we have potatoes in my little family.  For this reason, I am always trying to make the BEST style of potatoes.  We still love mashed but this new version is our favorite.

It is crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside.  DELICIOUS!

Recipe: Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

8-10 gold and red potatoes, quartered
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of finely grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of salt
Pepper to taste
2 large onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 400.

In a bowl toss potatoes, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.

In a large cookie sheet melt the stick of butter.

Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over melted butter.

Add potatoes to cookie sheet. Sprinkle sliced onions in between potatoes so that the whole cookie sheet is covered with either potatoes or onions.

Bake for 30 minutes, then turn potatoes and onions. Bake for another 30 minutes until they are golden brown.

Serve immediately.


  1. Ooooh I love potatoes...and parmesan...and of course garlic. These potatoes are singing to me!

  2. Oh Sherron, this looks so good! I love roasting potatoes but I've never added Parmesan cheese before. I'll try this very soon, and I really cannot wait to have them!! :)

  3. My Nan used to make the best roast potatoes in the world, she's still with us but is incredibly frail, she can't get about to cook anymore. These look super delicious mind. Yukon gold, maris piper and of course the kind edward are the best roasters in my opinion.

  4. I love potatoes too (Scandinavian heritage)! My husband does not understand it, but I have raved about them with an Irish friend of ours before. These look delicious!

  5. These do certainly look crispy and delicious, I have a bunch of potatoes I need to use, so this will be right up my alley!

  6. That first photo is stunning! Talk about a picture wanting to make you dig right in! And I'm not even that big a fan of roasted potatoes. Wow.
