Roasted potatoes are my favourite side dish because they pair so well with just about anything. Perfectly seasoned golden and crisped potatoes that are fluffy on the inside. These surely are epic roasted potatoes!
1/4 c. (60ml) olive oil
3 lbs (1.5 kg) baby red potatoes, washed and quartered
6 large cloves of garlic finely chopped or minced
3/4 c. fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/2 c. unsalted butter
1/2 c. crispy bacon bits (optional)
Salt and fresh cracked black pepper
Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish
How to make Roasted Garlic Butter Parmesan Potatoes
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C. Using a nonstick spray or olive oil, grease a large baking sheet. Set aside.
Step 2: In boiling water, parboil the baby red potatoes for about 5 to 8 minutes.
Step 3: Place 1/4 cup of olive oil, garlic, salt, herbs, pepper, and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Mix well until blended. If the Parmesan cheese has absorbed most of the oil, add a little more olive oil to the mixture.
Step 4: Add the parboiled potatoes to the garlic Parmesan mixture and toss to evenly coat.
Step 5: Onto the prepared baking sheet, arrange the coated potatoes in a single layer, cut-side down. In the bottom rack of the oven, place the baking sheet and bake the potatoes for about 25 minutes. Using tongs or spatula, turn the potatoes after 15 minutes and continue to bake until the potatoes are browned and the edges are crisped.
Step 6: While baking the potatoes, melt the butter in the microwave, then stir in the fresh chopped parsley.
Step 7: Take the baking sheet out of the oven when the potatoes are done baking and drizzle with the butter parsley sauce. Then, add the bacon bits and toss well.
Step 8: Serve right away with the garlic butter Parmesan. Enjoy!
