Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

This is a simple Italian seasoning recipe to add to potatoes that really enhances their flavoring. I am curious to see how it will taste on cauliflower or even roasted root vegetables. The possibilities are endless.

Recipe yields 6 servings

2 lbs baby red potatoes
2 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp basil
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp parsley
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425F degrees and place a rack in the center. Scrub your potatoes clean.

Dice the potatoes into 1/4" chunks.

Add the potatoes to a baking dish and coat with oil. Toss in your spices and cheese and give it a good stir so all the potatoes are evenly covered.

Cover the pan with tinfoil and place in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove tinfoil, use a spatula to toss up the potatoes, and then return to the oven for another 30-40 minutes. During this time, check on the potatoes every 10-12 minutes and give them a turn so all edges get crispy.

If you would like the edges to get super crispy, I suggest placing the potatoes under the broiler for 5-10 minutes. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn, but this will help those edges really crisp up (the way I like them). Serve and enjoy!
