How To Make Parmesan-Crusted Roasted Potatoes

Let's get started by prepping and cleaning those potatoes. Next up, mix melted butter and herbs together—yum! Now comes the fun part: dip each potato half into the buttery herb goodness, making sure it sticks. Arrange them on a baking sheet, cut side down, and pour any extra buttery goodness over the top. Pop 'em in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until they're nice and tender. Easy peasy, right?

Ingredients

POTATOES:

  • Gold potatoes. Cut into halves. I like to use small Yukon potatoes or similar ones.
  • Extra virgin olive oil. Feel free to use your favorite high-quality EVOO. My fave tried and trusted brand is California Olive Ranch.
  • Herbs + seasonings. Sea salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder + dried thyme.
  • Unsalted butter. Melted --- This is what is going to give the potatoes their perfect crispy outer. I love using organic butter from Organic Valley.
  • Parmesan cheese. The delicious cheesy star of the show. make sure it's freshly grated.

Tips for PERFECTLY CRISPY Parmesan-Crusted Roasted Potatoes

These are my top tips to make sure your Parmesan-Crusted Roasted Potatoes are as crisp as possible:

  • Cut the potatoes to equal sizes as much as possible. This way, they cook at the same rate. In this case, you’ll be cutting them rather large into halves.
  • Don’t be afraid to season well!
  • Let the oven come fully to a temperature before you add the potatoes to the oven. It needs to be a nice and hot environment.
  • Don't skimp on the parmesan!!! The parmesan cheese adds flavor and helps create a crispy crust, so be generous when coating the potatoes.
  • Serve immediately. For the crispiest results, serve the roasted potatoes immediately after they come out of the oven.

Can I Air Fry Parmesan Crusted Potatoes?

Absolutely! While I initially made these fries in the oven, they're also a perfect fit for your air fryer. Air fryers tend to run hotter and offer better air circulation, so your homemade fries might need a slightly shorter cook time. To make cleanup a breeze and prevent sticking, I recommend lining the air fryer basket with baking paper before adding the potatoes. This will ensure easy cleaning and perfectly crispy results every time!
