Roasted Red Potatoes with Parmesan Cheese


Don’t you just love those little red potatoes you get at a wedding?  ME TOO!  And they NEVER serve enough, do they?

Well this recipe is nothing like that.  I just thought I’d ask if you loved them as much as I do.

I’m just kidding, because I actually like these oven roasted red potatoes BETTER!  I know this is almost unimaginable.  But it’s true!  This is probably the most loved side dish in my house!

Let me introduce you to the Cast of Characters:
Red Potatoes, Butter, Parmesan Cheese, Sea Salt & Pepper, Fresh Parsley.

After you make these potatoes this way, it just may become your most favorite way to make them ever too.  I know this is a very tall promise, but I’m THAT confident.

Side dishes (IMO) shouldn’t be stressful or complicated.  They should enhance your dinner by their simplicity.


The wonderful thing about this recipe is for an entire tray of potatoes you will only need 3 Tablespoons of butter and 3 Tablespoons of cheese.  that’s it!   Any more and it’s too much.


The potatoes get to crisp up in the oven without drowning in butter.  It’s just enough to keep them from sticking to the pan (or Silpat) and just enough to nicely brown them and give them that crispy crust.

Try them ~ trust me!

  1. A silpat is a baking mat you put down on your baking sheet. Sipat is the namebrand and you can buy less expensive no name brands as well. I have tinkered with both and was first introduced to the Silpat in 2000 while shopping in Canada. Since then I have never NOT used one. Nothing will EVER stick, nothing will EVER burn (providing you know how to cook). You can get them from Bed and Bath, Amazon as well as other major dept stores with kitchen depts.

  2. Sounds delish! I’ve never used a silpat before – what is it?
