Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes - These buttery garlic potatoes are tossed with Parmesan goodness and roasted to crisp-tender perfection!

My name is Chung-Ah and I am a carboholic.

Yes, anything that has an excess amount of carbs – I’m in. I’ll skip over the prime rib. The fried chicken. Just pass me these potatoes and let’s call it a day.

I kid you not. You’ll forget all about that juicy steak when you take a bite of these potatoes. These crisp tender potatoes smothered in melted butter, Parmesan cheese and well seasoned with fragrant herbs.

And maybe a little bit of extra Parmesan cheese right on top.

  1. Love this recipe! My second time making this & I added cut cauliflower along with the potatoes. Yummy! Thank you for such an easy, delicious recipe!

  2. Hi there! Making this for Christmas Eve! Sounds incredible! Can I make this ahead of time? If so how do you suggest re-heating? 
    Thank you and happy holidays!

    This is my new go to recipe for roasted potatoes and a new family favorite.  The recipe was easy to follow.

    So easy and delicious

    I literally can’t stop eating these roasted potatoes!! Putting these on the menu for Thanksgiving this year instead of mashed potatoes – they are that good!!

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    So, so, soooo goood!

    I made these scrumptious potatoes last week as a side dish with grilled steak and my mouth was in heaven! WOW! One bite and you will see what I mean. The herbs are perfectly balanced and the fresh grated parmesan carries this dish over the top. Keep your potato cuts small enough to ensure they cook through in the prescribed time and be prepared to sigh with satisfaction.

    A hit!
    I make these at least twice a week. Thank you!

    My family and I all loved these potatoes. I also forgot to add the butter at the end but am planning to make them again soon plus the butter! Very easy yet delicious. Thank you for sharing this.

    My husband and I loved these potatoes! They turned out great! Thank you!

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    Oh my God!! These have to be one of the best things I’ve eaten! So, so delicious! I used the little steamer bag of red bliss potatoes. Steamed for 5 minutes, and ready to start the recipe. Easy, peasy!

  11. Rated 5 out of 5

    These are SO. GOOD! I normally just do a plain roasted potato and happened to have some petite gold potatoes around. I cut this down to about 1lb of potatoes. So crispy and delicious, plus easy to modify depending on what you have. Simple to make too.

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    This recipe was so delicious! I make roasted potatoes all the time and I don’t know why I never thought to make with parmesan. I did a mix of sweet and russet potatoes and baked 30 min at 410 (I had something else in the oven too) and they came out amazing. Thank you!

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    My family LOVED this side dish! I made it as directed, except: (1) I cut the recipe down to 2 pounds of potatoes; (2) I accidentally forgot to add the butter at the end (and it was totally yummy without the butter so I’m sure it would be even better if you remembered to put it in); (3) I did not add the chopped parsley since we are not fans; (4) I used a bowl to toss all the ingredients since, for me, its easier and works better (more even coverage) than trying to toss on a pan. I served this with the lemon butter chicken recipe from this website, and the dinner was a huge hit with my whole family. Thank you Chungah for sharing your amazing talent.

  14. I assume you boil the potatoes first, yes? 

    Would otherwise seem rather strange to just chuck in raw potatoes in the oven. 

  15. Can I use Yukon gold potatoes instead? 

  16. I am cooking these tonight for the first time. I really do not care for the flavor of butter. Is it necessary for the cooking process or just for flavor?

  17. Rated 5 out of 5

    Everyone loved them. Ive found my my new roasted potato recipe.
    Is there a left over recipe for these potatoes. I wouldn’t think they would freeze well

  18. Rated 5 out of 5

    Garlic Parmesan roasted potatoes very good. I also used one container to mix, did melt butter last 2 minutes of cooking and poured over potatoes.  I used the recipe and put yellow squash, zucchini, sweet onions cooked same degrees and same time also yummy

  19. Rated 5 out of 5

    I can’t stop eating these!!! So easy, these will be a family staple from now on.

  20. Hello! My name is Victoria and I’m a carboholic.

    I completely understand.

  21. Garlic burns in the oven that long. 

  22. What do you stir the butter into?? I’m confused by the wording here.

  23. Made these tonight !! BOMB!l

  24. I wanted to try this recipe garlic/parmesan potato recipe for a pot luck. But then at the end you said serve at once. Would they be as good at room temperature or you do not recommend it cold.

  25. Even the best cook knows to toss before putting on the cooking sheet. And with your butter directions you need another bowl. #Horrible4steps

  26. Hi,CHUNGAH
    so maybe this is totally a crazy question, but would sweet potatoes work instead? i happen to have those on-hand, but i’m not sure how they would complement (or not complement–ha) parmesan. thanks so much, chungah! i allllllways love checking out your site!

  27. can you use regular potatos instead of red?

  28. Oh my word, I made these for dinner and the taste is out of this world… thanks for sharing, I’ve been looking for different things to cook and this dish made the “must have” list!

  29. Just made these for me and my husband and two daughters (9 & 2) paired with steak for the grown ups and kosher hot dogs for the kids, and a romaine salad. Love the crispiness of the parm as it melted to the baking sheet. My husband sends his thanks! This is a keeper 🙂 thanks

  30. Would you change anything if using baby red potatoes? Thanks.

  31. These are in my oven right now and the smell is to die for!! I can’t wait to devour them. 🙂

  32. Call me dense. This recipe isn’t clear about how to exactly assemble, or what to do with the ingredients. I made them from finding the recipe on my cell phone and ended up combining everything only to figure out I don’t think that’s what it means. It talks about gently tossing ingredients. Does the olive oil get brushed on to the potatoes first? Where does the butter come in? They’re baking now but they’re not gonna look like the pictures.

  33. Do you think this will this still be good without the parm?

  34. what does it mean to stir in the butter? I’m confused on when/how the butter is being added with the potatoes on a baking sheet.

  35. Love this recipe. I have found some excellent dishes like this one online. We are getting fat and happy with all these. Try chicken casserole sometimes.

  36. This recipe looks excellent. I am going make this Friday night. I also am going to try the rotisserie chicken with them.

  37. Try these potatoes with rotisserie chicken, its delicious

    2 (3 to 4 pound) whole chickens, rinsed and trimmed of excess fat
    Olive oil, for brushing chickens
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    Special Equipment: rotisserie rod
    Watch how to make this recipe.
    Preheat the grill to medium-high. Brush the chickens with oil and season the outside and cavities with salt and pepper. Skewer the chickens onto the rotisserie rod and grill, on the rotisserie, for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and just cooked through. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

  38. Is it okay to marinate them over night with olive oil and all the ingredients? (minus the parm cheese, ill do that before i pop em in the oven)

  39. I am fixing these for dinner tonight.

  40. Can these be frozen? if So what stage can they be frozen in?

    • I find that this recipe is best when fresh potatoes are used, but as always, please use your best judgment.

  41. These are wonderful. I used them with extra salt and had fried chicken with them. Absolutely fantastic

  42. These are excellent with rotisserie chicken and a hot fresh roll. I made these last night and they were a huge hit. No wonder these looks so good, they are made with love.

  43. Tried these for the first time last night. My hubbyand I loved these! Thanks for the recipe.

  44. These were SOOOOO good!!! 

  45. I use freshly peeled potatoes, put the in a baking bag with 1 TSP oil and a packet of ranch zesty dressing and bake. But yours looks so much better. I am definitely having this with rotisserie chicken. 

  46. Sorry, not so great.  Potatoes weren’t quite done yet cheese was turning black so I had to remove from oven.  Hmmm… Maybe next time.

    • Make sure u set the oven to the right temp and I took them out often enough to stir them around. 

    • I put the cheese on last after taking them out the oven. Since the potatoes will be hot the cheese will melt nicely and won’t burn in the oven. Hope this helps!

  47. Going to try this tonight with some smaller Yukon Gold potatoes I have from a couple days ago that I didn’t use

  48. These potatoes look so delicious. I am getting so many recipes off your site and trying on my family. Those looks delicious!

  49. I’m trying these tonight with petite yellow potatoes.

  50. What is this wizardry! Just finished wolfing, I mean eating, these delectable potatoes. This is the 4th recipe of yours I have tried and it is yummy, too!

  51. Wow, this looks good. Another way to make these is add tablespoon of olive oil and put potatoes in a baking bag with a packet of ranch dressing and then bake. Everyone love them and they work perfect with rotisserie chicken.

  52. I didn’t have any parsley and totally forgot the butter, but these potatoes were still wonderful. My husband couldn’t stop talking about them!

  53. so maybe this is totally a crazy question, but would sweet potatoes work instead? i happen to have those on-hand, but i’m not sure how they would complement (or not complement–ha) parmesan. thanks so much, chungah! i allllllways love checking out your site!

  54. These are the BEST roasted potatoes I have ever made! The herbs used etc. is perfection ! A keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  55. Hello I was wondering if there were any steps for these potatoes I can do ahead of time.

  56. I’m a novice cook and some of your directions confused me. How does one toss the potatoes lightly to coat while they are on the cooking sheet? (I chose to toss everyrhing in a bowl to coat it, then spread it on the sheet). Also, the butter step st the end confused me – is this to drizzle on the potatoes in the end? I love your site and have tried several recipes already.

    • Jessica, you can simply toss everything right on the sheet pan – why dirty another bowl? Same goes for the butter. The butter will melt with the residual heat right on the pan. This way, you save on cleaning up 2 dirty bowls! 🙂

  57. These were delish but very strong smelling when cooking!

  58. I would like to do this on the BBQ so as not to heat up the kitchen. Would there be any changes to the method really?

  59. These turned out great. I didn’t measure anything and used a lot of freshly grated Parmesan. Tossed everything in a bowl first to coat well and then added the Parmesan once in the pan. Totally forgot the butter and it was not missed.

  60. I am a carb junkie. These look absolutely delicious. I will make a ttip to Kroger and definitely be trying this receipt one day this week.

  61. This is on the menu tonight–thank you! It’s in the oven right now and smells amazing.

  62. This is what I was looking for this morning. We ended up with a few extra pounds of new red potatoes. What to do? We grow lots of fresh herbs in our small container garden here at home. Ahhhhhhh garlic and potatoes.
    This is going to get paired with a filet or three of grilled salmon over hardwood coals.
    Thank you for the recipe.

  63. I tried this and it was delicious

  64. Potatoes are my favorite and these are delicious! I always have to cook mine a little longer (maybe my potatoes are bigger?), but they always turn out great. I think the butter at the end is the trick!

    I also wanted to let you know that I included this recipe in my recent Easter side dish roundup post (3/30/15). I hope everyone gets a chance to try these potatoes. If you want me to remove your picture from my site, please let me know. I did give credit and note that everyone should pin from the original source.

  65. hello! just found your blog! i just read your faqs and am so inspired that you were able to quit your day job to become a full time food blogger. congrats!! 🙂

  66. made these potatoes for dinner and they were just like you said. delicious. crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. found the recipe on pinterest and will definitely make again. thanks for sharing a great recipe.

  67. These potatoes were utterly fantastic. Will be my go to taters from now on.

  68. These were a huge hit! I left off the basil and thyme and went easy on the rest because of picky kids and everyone loved them. Thanks!

  69. These look delicious! But is there any way you could make these using russet potatoes instead? What would you recommend? Thanks!

  70. Made them for my book group and everyone loved them!! They’re SO GOOD! These are going to be my go-to side dish. Didn’t hurt that the recipe was so quick and easy.

  71. These were fantastic! Making them again tonight.. thank you!

  72. This makes a perfect fit with roast lamb – as does your garlic roast carrots recipe! . I am looking forward to my Sunday Roast this week!

  73. Made these last night to go along in the oven with a lemony dill baked salmon. Excellent partner! I’m making them again as “bites” to take with a dipping sauce to a football playoff party today. Will cook them like the recipe says, then load them in my crock pot (pre-warmed, and lined with a paper towel on bottom and one laid in and pinned down with the lid to collect any moisture) for the ride over to the friends house and just keep them on warm. Yummy, gotta get buisy

  74. What goes good with these? They look AMAZING!

  75. Try it and loves the way the potatoes taste. Great recipe.

  76. They were very good. Next time I am going to cut them into smaller pieces though.

  77. I’m going to make these tonight with the standing rib roast I got for my mom’s birthday and a nice salad. Here’s hoping they taste as good they sound (and as good as I know they’re going to smell)!

  78. So these are in the oven right now and it smells unbelievable! Can’t wait for dinner!

  79. Dinner is served! Thanks a bunch Chung-Ah!

  80. Omigosh, I am so glad I found this blog! I made these potatoes last night and they were fabulous. At first I was a bit disconcerted that the parm wasn’t really sticking to the potatoes, but those crunchy bits that ended up on the pan were the perfect accompaniment to the delicious potatoes. Much better by far than the garlic parmesan potatoes I had been making.

    I’ve bookmarked several other intriguing recipes and can’t wait to try them. Thank you.

  81. Yup. Definitely making these tonight.

  82. Roasted potatoes are one of my favorite comfort foods. Potatoes are one of the “dirty dozen” so buying organic is a good option to reduce chemical exposure.

  83. I have one word for these….DELICIOUS!!

  84. Found this recipe on Pinterest. All I can say is….YUM!

  86. Wow! These look amazing! This might sound silly, but I would so love and appreciate a bit of clarification, regarding “stir in the butter until melted”. When and how does this happen exactly to the potatoes? Ps- I really LOVE your blog and all of your recipes! Thank you so much for sharing Chungah!

    • This should happen immediately after the potatoes are taken out of the oven. That way the residual heat will cause the butter to melt.

  87. You hit this one out of the park! Simple, fresh, absolutely delicious.

  88. I always seem to ask this question but is your Parmesan the freshly shredded kind or the quick in a can kind? I’m DEFINATELY making these for dinner tonight!

  89. Your recipes are so fabulous!!! Thank you for sharing!!! Kitty

  90. Do you have a book of all your recepies I can purchase please? I love them all! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  91. Carbs, carbs, carbs. Gotta love ’em. 🙂 Carbs + Parmesan cheese? Pure perfection!

  92. All of your recipes sound amazing! I am going to need to add some entries to my cookbook. haha

  93. Just paired these with green beans, and steak for dinner! They were so good! Great use of herbs to add some extra flavor!

  94. How do you stay so thin? I love your recipes

  95. These look amazing. I am such a carboholic!

  100. Wow this looks amazing! Just found your blog, it’s so lovely!! 🙂

  101. These look SO GOOD …. and glad that parsley is a garnish as I am super allergic to it!!!

  102. I am with you – I can almost smell them through your great pictures.

  109. I am a huge lover of potatoes, especially when there is garlic and Parmesan cheese. I’m in with ya! 🙂

  110. I love carbs too but not really savory carbs. Give me some sweet carbs, some empty cookie calories, and I’m in heaven. Not that I would be complaining about your potato carbs or anything though! 🙂

  111. I would absolutely inhale these!
