Ingredients for Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

You can say goodbye to a long, complicated recipe for garlic parmesan roasted potatoes.

And, instead, say hello to today’s simple and fantastic garlic roasted potatoes!

  • Red potatoes – sometimes these can be a bit big, in which case I’ll quarter or even eighth them. Otherwise, small or creamer potatoes work great
  • Olive oil – use extra virgin olive oil for its unrefined, stronger flavor
  • Garlic – fresh garlic is best, but minced will do
  • Oregano
  • Italian seasoning
  • Parmesan – freshly-grated is great, dairy-free is good, too!
  • Salt and pepper – also try adding some seasoned salt for an extra kick.
  • Butter – Use salted butter if you want it extra salty (I used unsalted), or go with vegan butter
  • Freshly chopped parsley – flat leaf is nice, but curled is just fine!

How to Make Garlic Roasted Potatoes

We’ll go over how to make garlic roasted potatoes here with step-by-step photos.

Begin by preheating the oven to 400°F. Then, line a baking sheet with greased foil. You’ll want to use enough oil so the parmesan doesn’t stick during baking.

Then, wash and dry potatoes and chop into ¾” cubes. Add potatoes to a large mixing bowl.

Next, add these ingredients to the bowl: oil, garlic, and seasonings.

My favorite part is adding in the parmesan. It adds such a tangy and flavorful punch to your roasted potatoes.

For crisp, evenly roasted garlic potatoes, make sure to spread potatoes into an even, single layer.

Next, bake for about 25 minutes. Stir and flip, then bake again for 15-20 minutes, until fork tender at the center and crisp at the edge.

To finish the garlic parmesan roasted potatoes, carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven.

Then, place on a heatproof surface. Add butter and optionally, some more parmesan. Stir and fold the butter and parmesan with the potatoes.
