Garlic Parmesan Potatoes are a delectable dish where bite-sized potatoes are seasoned with garlic, herbs, and grated Parmesan cheese, then oven-roasted until golden and crispy on the outside, while maintaining a soft and fluffy texture on the inside.
1.5 lbs (about 700g) baby potatoes, washed and halved (or quartered if larger)
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and black pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the halved baby potatoes, olive oil, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper. Toss everything together until the potatoes are evenly coated with the seasoning mixture.
Spread the seasoned potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for approximately 25-30 minutes or until they are golden and crispy on the outside. Make sure to give them a gentle toss halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven and immediately sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the top while they are still hot. The residual heat will help the cheese melt and adhere to the potatoes.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
Tips for this recipe
For an extra burst of flavor, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the seasoning mixture before roasting the potatoes. This will give the dish a subtle hint of heat that pairs beautifully with the garlic and Parmesan cheese.
