PARMESAN ROASTED BABY POTATO

Most of the time I prefer cooking one pot meals as I am always running to pick my kids from the nursery & taking them to their trainings. But, when I have time, I love serving a nice side dish next to my main meal.

I am huge fan of roasting potato in the oven; don’t get me wrong, french fries will always be my number one dish on earth but my time & wasitline can’t afford eating it everyday.

I shared with you before the recipe for roasted potato wedges & today, we will prepare baby potatoes; we will coat them with breadcrumbs + parmesan & roast them until golden crispy.

A very easy yet amazing dish that takes minutes to prepare & less than 30 minutes to roast in the oven. I prefer using baby potatoes as they roast faster & you have only one cut side so it gets really crispy without any flipping in the middle.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 500 gm baby potato unpeeled cut in half
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp breadcrumbs بقسماط
  • 4 tbsp grated parmsan بارميزان مبشورة
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder ثوم بودرة
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder بصل بودرة
  • 1/2 tsp paprika بابريكا
  • 1 tsp oregano or thyme زعتر أو أوريجانو
  • salt & pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 200 C.
  • In a large bowl, toss the potato with the oil until well coated. Sprinkle the rest of the ingredients & mix well with the potato. Using your hands, make sure the cut side of the potato has enough of the breadcrumb mixture stuck to it.
  • Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a non stick baking tray; cut side down.
  • Roast for about 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender & the bottom side is golden brown & crispy.
  • Serve immediately with sour cream.

Notes:

  • You CAN’T use any other type of cheese as it will melt, stick & burn.
  • Use a pyrex so that it is easier to check the bottom of the potato while roasting.
  • Because ovens really vary, start checking the potato after 20 minutes.
  • If you are using larger baby potato & the bottom side became golden but the potato is still not fork tender, flip the potato on the skin side & continue roasting for another 5 minutes.
