Roasted new potatoes with parmesan and fresh herbs is an easy side dish sure to please everyone. They are golden and crispy on the outside and tender and flaky on the inside.
One of the things I like about blogging is the inspiration you get from other bloggers. Recently my friend Traci, from Vanilla and Bean, posted a great side dish and I realized that I don’t have very many side dishes on my blog. So today I’m sharing an easy side dish – roasted new potatoes with parmesan and fresh herbs.
Roasting new potatoes couldn’t be easier. Just chop them in half and toss with a little olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Roast for about 35 minutes and they come out crispy and golden brown on the outside and flaky and tender on the inside. Next, sprinkle them with a little freshly grated parmesan cheese and finely, minced herbs and you’ve got the perfect side dish that everyone loves.
A couple of notes:
- For the fresh herbs, I used parsley and thyme, but you can use any fresh herbs that you like.
- Start checking your potatoes around 30 minutes. Mine have been ready pretty consistently around 35 minutes but every oven is different.
- No need to flip or toss the potatoes during the cooking process – they come out evenly brown without tossing.
- Finely grated parmesan cheese will easily melt and coat the potatoes when they come out of the oven – so please grate your own parmesan rather than use pre-grated cheese.
