    Serves: 6 

    • cooking spray
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    • 900g red potatoes, halved
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons soured cream, to serve (optional)

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Spray a large baking tray with cooking spray. Pour in 1 teaspoon vegetable oil to coat the bottom.
    2. Place the potatoes cut-side down on sheets of paper towel to remove excess moisture (this helps them get crisp in the oven). Place potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil; toss well.
    3. Mix Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika and black pepper together in a bowl. Sprinkle over the potatoes; toss to coat. Arrange potatoes, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking tray.
    4. Roast potatoes in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn over and return to the oven until golden and crispy, about 15 to 20 more minutes. Serve with soured cream, if desired.


    This recipe calls for red potatoes, but you can use almost any potato. Red potatoes are normally quite small, so if your potatoes are larger, simply cut them in thirds or quarters.

    I am the submitter of this recipe and I’m delighted that you are enjoying it. I wanted to point out that AR changed my recipe when they published it. You will definitely need more than one teaspoon of oil to coat your pan otherwise your potatoes will likely stick. First spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray and then pour in enough oil to coat the pan. When I make these I make half of this recipe in a 10" cast iron skillet. Even though I don't measure, I'd say I use about one tablespoon of oil to coat my pan. I hope this helps.  -  12 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good. A trick I learned from a friend years ago, if you parboil your potatoes for just a few minutes you will yield a crispier roasted potato.  -  05 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a new recipe for roasted red potatoes and I couldn't be more pleased with this one. I used about a tablespoon of oil to coat the baking pan. I chopped the potatoes (husband's personal preference) and simply mixed with the cheese and spices, and spread onto baking pan. Per the instructions, I roasted for 20 minutes, stirred them and continued roasting for additional 20 minutes. They were absolutely delicious and we all (4) enjoyed them! This was an easy, enjoyable recipe that I will be making again!  -  21 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
