Garlic Roasted Potatoes Ingredients

One of my favorite things about oven roasted potatoes is that you can add just about anything to them. Depending on my mood I will add rosemary or chunks of onion to them. But, below is my favorite way to make them.

  • Petite red potatoes – quartered
  • Olive oil
  • Cloves of garlic – minced
  • Parmesan cheese – finely grated
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh parsley – chopped
  • Bacon – cooked and chopped

Hot To Make Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Recipe tips: You can turn this recipe into a one pan meal by baking the bacon in the oven. Then ditch the bowls and mix everything directly on the baking sheet. You can also make this side dish a little more healthy and completely remove the bacon.

Start by Preheating the to oven to 400 degrees. Then, grease a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Cook bacon in a large skillet about 2-3 minutes on each side or until crispy. Then, chop the bacon into 1/4 inch pieces and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add olive oil, minced garlic, thyme, oregano, basil, black pepper, chopped bacon and Parmesan cheese. Mix until well combined. Add potatoes to seasoning mixture. Mix with a large spoon or spatula until potatoes are evenly coated.

Transfer potatoes to the prepared baking sheet. Spread them out evenly in a single layer. Put baking sheet into preheated oven on the middle rack. Cook for 30-35 minutes or until potatoes become soft and skin is crispy.

Remove potatoes from oven and sprinkle fresh chopped parsley over the top. Allow to cool for 2-3 to allow cheese to stick to the potatoes.

Do You Have To Use Red Potatoes?

You can use any potato that you like for this recipe. I prefer the flavor and texture of the red potatoes after they have been oven roasted. They have a yummy crispy skin and a soft center.

Other potatoes you can try.

  • Russet potatoes
  • Yukon gold potatoes
  • Fingerling potatoes
  • White Potatoes

I have even used sweet potatoes and they were so yummy!
