Viral Crispy Parmesan Crusted Potatoes

These crispy oven-roasted parmesan potatoes are easy to make & taste amazing. The butter, parmesan, and spices soak right in while crisping up the outside!


  • Butter: Butter plays a huge part in this recipe. Not only does it help the potatoes get crispy, but it also infuses them with flavor and richness. That’s why I don’t just use any butter; I use Danish Creamery Sea Salted Premium Butter which happens to be my favorite, and for good reason. It’s made with high-quality cream and a touch of sea salt for a richer, creamier flavor and adds a delicious hint of saltiness to these potatoes
  • Baby potatoes: Choose small, uniform baby potatoes for this recipe. This will ensure they cook evenly and consistently.
  • Parmesan cheese: Use good quality grated parmesan cheese for added nutty flavor. You want to avoid the overly processed parmesan, and if you can get a hunk, you grate yourself even better!
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, salt, and pepper: These seasonings enhance the overall flavor of the potatoes. Feel free to adjust to your taste.
