How to make Parmesan roasted baby potatoes
In small bowl, stir together Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper and Italian seasoning until mixed.
Pour oil into the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, making sure the oil coats the bottom completely.
Then sprinkle the cheese mixture with your fingers over the entire oiled bottom of the baking dish.
Move slowly and evenly as you scatter the seasoning because you don’t want to move the mixture once it’s in the dish.
Next place the cut side of each baby potato half onto the mixture, starting at one side and moving across by rows.
Push the potato down into the cheese mixture so that it will stick but don’t twist it, just push down.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender and cheese has turned golden brown.
Let potatoes rest for several minutes before removing each one carefully from the dish with a spatula and moving to a serving platter.
The Parmesan roasted baby potatoes are fun to eat and positively scrumptious!
