Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

These garlic parmesan roasted potatoes are simple to make and are the perfect side dish to any dinner.  These potatoes are just as crispy and delicious as fried potatoes, but much healthier!


This whole kitchen remodel is beginning to really test my patience, or lack thereof.  Remember how I mentioned doing the countertops a few weekends ago?  Yeah, never happened.  The countertops never came in or weren’t order, so now I’m stuck with countertops that are halfway torn apart.

We did get new flooring though!  The only bad part is that we damaged the floor the next day moving the appliances back into the kitchen.  My new stainless steel refrigerator has some lovely scratches across the front too.  That’s a story I’ll save for later.  I’m just beginning to think my kitchen is cursed.


The only good news right now is that my oven is back in the kitchen!  I’m not kidding when I say it felt like the longest two days of my life.  Naturally, I had to put my oven to good use.  Let’s just say I’m glad that I did.  I’ve been baking red potatoes for years now, but wanted to switch things up.  My potatoes are usually boring.  You know just some oil, salt, and pepper.  So boring.

What’s not boring are these garlic parmesan roasted potatoes.  Oh. My. Word.  It took every ounce of self control I had not to eat the entire batch when I was taking these pictures.  It also took every ounce of self control Benji had too.  I had to crop his nose out of 90% of these pictures.  I’ll spare you the behind the scene pictures of these potatoes.  Heh.


So anyways, these potatoes.  Life changing.  These potatoes are tossed with some oil, freshly mined garlic, along with other seasonings then baked to a golden perfection.  Once they’re done let them cool a few minutes then toss them with some freshly grated parmesan and garnish with some chopped parsley to make them pretty.  Amazing. 

Plain boring potatoes are a thing of the past, trust me.

    Oh dear! So are you going to have to keep waiting for countertops or are you going to try to salvage your existing ones? Luckily our countertops were usable when we did our remodel, that would have been so stressful to change them out too! On the other hand, these roast potatoes look amazing! I bought two five pound bags of potatoes at the market yesterday (they were $1.99 each!!!) so I will trying these soon!

    Oh No! That’s terrible news about your kitchen, but I’m sure it will turn out fantastic and it will totally be worth the wait (and stress!!!) but on the bright side, these potatoes came out of that kitchen of yours and they look amazing! As a huge potato fan, I must say I’m freaking starving after seeing these pics! ;) lol!

    Oh Danielle, I sorry to hear about your floors and fridge. Our floors were perfect until the movers brought our stuff in. They did try to be careful but with so much stuff and heavy stuff it was inevitable. I hope you do get your counters done, so you can really enjoy being in there :D
    Now, these roasted potatoes look amazing! My husband is seriously crazy for potatoes, but roasted are his all time favorite. I can’t wait to make these for him :D

      It’s so frustrating when your pretty flooring gets messed up, but it could be worse! Hope your husband likes these too!

    Home improvement can be such a nightmare, but it is always so nice when it is finally finished! So glad you were able to use your oven again! We always have a big bag of potatoes on hand and roasted them is my favorite way to make them! Next time I will for sure be throwing some garlic and Parmesan on top of them :)
