Crispy Parmesan Potatoes

Can you ever go wrong with cheesy potatoes? I don’t think so! I love how crispy and salty the parmesan cheese is all while attached to a perfectly cooked potato. The perfect side dish!

 

All of the ingredients needed for crispy parmesan potatoes.

Crispy Parmesan Potato Ingredients

Baby Yukon gold potatoes (halved)

No need to peel the potatoes! Baby red potatoes would also be delicious. The important thing is that you use mini potatoes. 

Butter

Salted (always!)

Grated parmesan cheese

Keyword: grated (not shredded!) 

Garlic powder

Onion powder

Dried thyme

Salt & pepper

Sliced baby Yukon gold potatoes on a cutting board.

How to Make the Best Crispy Parmesan Potatoes

1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2

In a small bowl, combine the parmesan cheese with the garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme.

3

Evenly spread the parmesan cheese mixture in the bottom of a 2 ½ quart baking dish. (It will be larger than a 9×9 but smaller than a 9×13.)

4

Place the halved potatoes cut/flat side down onto the parmesan cheese mixture. Be careful not to jostle them much once placed.

5

Brush the tops of the potatoes with the remaining butter and lightly season with a little bit of salt and pepper.

6

Bake for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and cooked through. Serve by breaking up the melted parmesan cheese with the potato pieces. Enjoy!

Crispy Parmesan Potato Variations

^

Change the flavor profile.

Instead of dried thyme, you could use dried parsley, dried basil, or Italian seasoning. Note: some seasonings will be a little more or less concentrated, so consider the proportions when you swap them out.  

^

Add some spice.

Add some chili flakes to the seasoning mixture to heat things up. 

^

Sub some fresh garlic.

If you’re in the mood for some fresh garlic, you could sub it for the powder. I recommend 1-2 cloves.  

^

Serve with dip.

Try some different flavor combos for a twist on this classic. You could go with tried-and-true ketchup or ranch. To mix it up, go with garlic aioli, pesto, or even a spicy mayo dip!
