Crispy Roasted Garlic Parmesan Crusted Potatoes, a delicious side dish that is super easy to make, and with minimal prep. Golden brown fluffy baby potatoes with an epic parmesan and garlic crust, this is the best side for any roast, be it a Sunday Roast, the Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey, or any other celebration.
Sides, as underrated as they can be, are the true stars of any meal. Yes, juicy roasts are a must, but a good side can make all the difference. And with Christmas coming, I can’t think of a better side dish that these fabulous parmesan-crusted roasted potatoes.
Unlike the classic roasted potatoes, which you need to parboil before roasting, in order to get that crispiness you are after, these roasted parmesan potatoes need hardly any preparation.
How TO make parmesan crusted potatoes
All you need to do halve them, (don’t even bother peeling them) arrange them on the baking tray that’s been sprinkled with the parmesan mixture an a bit of olive oil, and that’s it.
Throw them in the oven, and they are ready in 45 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius (390 Fahrenheit). No need to turn them on the other side either. They turn out just perfect without any hassle whatsoever.
Don’t you just love these beautifully golden roasties? The combination garlic and parmesan is to die for. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the old-fashioned way of making roasted potatoes too, and my rosemary roasted potatoes is still one of my favourite side dish.
But sometimes we want to try something different, and these garlic parmesan potatoes are exactly what we need to make this Christmas dinner special.
Ah, potatoes! I don’t care about carbs and all when I have any potato dish in front of me. For all I know, I could happily live on potatoes only my whole life and I will never complain about it.
