Delectable crispy roasted red potatoes made with fresh Parmesan Cheese, rosemary, oregano and basil.   A family friendly recipe that goes great with braised beef, grilled chicken and roasted pork tenderloin.


  • 2 lbs small red potatoes cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup finely grated fresh Parmesan
  • canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dry potatoes thoroughly with paper towels.
  2. Place potatoes in one gallon storage bag. Add olive oil and shake to coat all the potatoes. Add basil, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to bag. Shake to coat well. Add the Parmesan cheese and shake to coat.
  3. Coat baking sheet heavily with canola or vegetable oil or spray with nonstick spray. Arrange potatoes flesh side down in single layer on cookie sheet pressing any loose Parmesan/spice mixture back on to the flesh side of the potatoes as you scoop them out out of the bag. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully flip potatoes so the flesh side is up. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until golden brown.


  • Dry the potatoes well after washing and slicing
  • These potatoes make an excellent appetizer served with bleu cheese cream sauce or spicy chipotle ketchup.
  • Buy really good quality Parmesan cheese.  It really does make a difference
  • Place the potatoes fairly close to each other on the cookie sheet because Parmesan has a tendency to melt and you want it to stick to the next potato.  When you flip them over you can spread them out a bit for further browning.
  • Use a well seasoned baking sheet and spray with a nonstick cooking spray or coat with canola or vegetable oil.
  • When you flip the potatoes use a thin spatula so you can scoop up under the Parmesan Cheese.
