These Roasted Potatoes with parmesan, garlic and herbs are my favorite, go-to roasted potatoes! They have so much delicious flavor and a perfect texture – crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. A perfect side dish to compliment your favorite entrees. You might even choose these as your favorite Thanksgiving potato recipe!
Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes
I’m quite certain that roasting vegetables is the ultimate way to cook them. Wouldn’t you agree?
These flavorful oven-roasted red potatoes prove that to me once again. Roasting them in the oven adds flavor and texture you wouldn’t get from other cooking methods. Smooth, mashed potatoes are a comfort favorite, but the crispy, cheesy crust on these roasted potatoes is much more crave-worthy.
These herb roasted potatoes are easy to throw together and after you’ve made them a few times you might even find you’ve memorized this simple recipe.
And they’re pretty addictive. I mean, it’s not often I want more and more veggies.
I make these parmesan roasted potatoes several times a month and everyone always is excited to see these show up at the dinner table!

How to Roast Potatoes

- Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
- Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on bottom.
- Remove from oven, add garlic, and toss.
- Return to oven and bake until golden brown and crisp.

How Long to Roast Potatoes
I cut the red potatoes into 1-inch chunks and roasted them at 400 degrees F for about 45 minutes total.
What to Serve with Roast Potatoes

Can I Use Dried Herbs Instead of Fresh?
If you don’t have fresh herbs on hand, I’ve also made these with Italian seasoning instead, use 1 1/2 tsp (instead of rosemary and parsley).
Can I Use Another Type of Potato?
I’m sure you can. Just keep in mind that different varieties of potatoes have different textures and cook times, so use your best judgment when switching up this recipe.
Tips for the Best Roasted Potatoes
- I like to use refrigerated grated parmesan. Shelf stable works too (such as Kraft), I just prefer the fresher taste of the refrigerated version. I’ve also found I don’t like shredded parmesan here because it doesn’t coat as evenly. For best results, go with the powdery stuff for the best coating.
- Wait to add the garlic until that 30-minute point so it doesn’t burn. Otherwise, you’ll end with bitter garlic.
- Use a flat metal spatula to turn the potatoes. Even when the baking sheet is greased and dusted with flour you’ll likely find a few still sticking, so that thin spatula will help turn them (if you try non-stick foil, let me know how that works).
- If you find the parmesan roasted potatoes don’t brown enough to your liking, try using a darker baking sheet the next time around. The dark coating on those promotes browning.
