Buttering Parmesan Crusted Potatoes


This recipe is easy to prep and easy to bake!

POTATOES Baby potatoes are my favorite to use in this recipe, but russets, reds, and even purple potatoes will work as well.

Look for firm potatoes that are evenly sized so they roast uniformly. Rinse off any dirt and wipe them dry with a paper towel before cutting.

BUTTER These potatoes are coated in unsalted, melted butter. If using salted butter, be sure to adjust the salt to your liking when seasoning the potatoes.

CHEESE This is one place you definitely want to use the powdery grated parmesan cheese, I find it adheres better than shredded cheese.

The shredded parmesan variety will work too but the grated works best!

SEASONINGS Classic seasonings like oregano and garlic powder are great but you can use whatever your favorites are.

Depending on what you are serving these with, try tossing the potatoes in taco, ranch, or everything bagel seasoning for a flavorful twist!

  1. I have made these for 20 years or so, BUT , your way is going to be much better than the way I have been doing them. This old gal learned something new today.
    I started by baking the potatoes and then putting the cheese on them, I was using russets and cutting them in chunks. I can’t wait to cook the little ones like this .
    Thank you for sharing your recipes with us.5 stars

  2. I have made these twice and my husband devoured them no left overs!. so good crispy and the dip is so yummy!.

  3. These potatoes are perfection! They are tender in the center and crispy crunchy on the outside with the amazing flavors of butter, Parmesan cheese and garlic. I paired them with Marry me Chicken and green beans with bacon. What a perfect meal! Enjoy!!5 stars

      1. Hello. This recipe looks delish.
        I wonder if would be as good done in air fryer. Trying not to use the oven in this hot weather

      2. I think that would turn out great Diane! If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!

  4. I made these with dinner tonight. I don’t have a photo because my husband loved it so much! Very simple to make and very tasty. I love all your recipes and I try to make as many as I can. This one is a keeper. I will use it many times.5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure Sandra, but I think it should work just fine. If you try it, I would love to hear how it turns out!

  5. This recipe was soooo good! I can’t have dairy so we used shredded vegan parmesan and ended up doubling the “cheese” mix (2/3 cup parm, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp oregano). It still turned out amazing! If anyone is using shredded parmesan instead of grated, you can just sprinkle piles of it onto the baking sheet and set the potatoes cut side down in the cheese mix – it turns out the same. My whole family loved it and we will definitely be making this again!5 stars

  6. Tried this amazing potatoe recipe tonight and the family LOVED it! The dipping sauce was also great and I would pair that with other things, including roast beef. Thanks for all your awesome recipes. Never disappointed!5 stars

  7. I fixed this for dinner last night and my family loved it! The only thing I did different was I just follow the steps from the fb video. Melted butter in pan garlic powder, Parmesan cheese. I added chives thinking I’m dressing it up. I Didn’t see the recipe until the next day. They came out perfect like the video!
