What You Need to Make Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes
This is honestly one of my favorite side dishes because it uses so many simple ingredients. As long as you have potatoes and parmesan, your spice rack has the rest! Find measurements for each of the ingredients listed below in the recipe card at the end of the post.
- Red Potatoes: I used red potatoes because they have the perfect little size and texture. They also take less time to cook! However, you can use other potato types as well. Find substitutes in my tips section below!
- Olive Oil: Helps to cook the outside of the potatoes so they get nice and crispy!
- Parmesan Cheese: Adds that perfect sharp, cheesy flavor. It also has the best texture when it’s baked.
- Garlic: Minced garlic adds the perfect savory flavor that makes these potatoes irresistible!
- Oregano: Commonly found in Italian cooking, this aromatic herb adds the perfect boost of flavor!
- Salt and Pepper: Add both to enhance the overall flavor of this dish.
- Chopped Parsley: I used this as a garnish for a little extra peppery flavor.

Tips and Easy Substitutions
This easy potato side dish is perfect for customizing! I’ve listed a few tips and substitutes below to get you started!
- Do I Have to Use Red Potatoes? You don’t! This method will work with any potatoes, I just prefer the sweet, soft texture of red potatoes. Plus, I love how crispy the skin gets! Yukon, russet, white, and baby potatoes all work as well! Keep in mind that the cooking time may vary depending on the size and texture of the potatoes you use.
- Make Sure Your Oven is Hot Enough: The key to crispy potatoes is a HOT oven. If you roast them at a low temperature, it will take too long for the exterior to brown, and the inside will get mushy. Also, it’s important that you use a large sheet pan. You really don’t want any of the potatoes touching during the cooking process. If they do, you risk steaming the potatoes, instead of roasting them, and you won’t get the super crispy exterior we all love!
- Different Cheeses: Swap out parmesan for asiago, pecorino, or romano.
- Using a Different Cooking Oil: If you don’t have olive oil, canola or peanut oil work well, too.
- Keep it Crispy: Soaking your raw potato wedges in hot water for 10 minutes before baking helps give the wedges more of a crispy outside.
Storing Leftover Parmesan Garlic Potatoes
Have leftovers of this delicious side? Here’s how to keep them tasting crispy and fresh.
- In the Refrigerator: Store your leftover potato wedges in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
- Reheating: In order to keep your parmesan garlic roasted potatoes crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, I recommend reheating either in the oven or air fryer. In the oven, spread leftover potatoes on a baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In the air fryer, arrange a layer of potatoes in the basket, making sure that there is sufficient airflow. Reheat for 2-3 minutes at 400 degrees F.
