Savory Parmesan Potatoes

My daughter-in-law Brianna makes “the best” potato dish. There are rarely any leftovers, and it’s versatile enough that you can serve it with anything, from fancy to plain . . . or even as a snack.  I served it recently for a special Christmas dinner party, and both couples wanted the recipe. So, if you’re looking for a way to dress up potatoes, try this!

Savory Parmesan Potatoes
(6+ servings)

#1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

#2. Place 4-6 tablespoons butter on a large baking sheet and melt the butter in the oven. (One large baking sheet can hold about 6 medium-sized potatoes.) Remove from oven to cutting board.

#3. Sprinkle on top of melted butter:
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper (Brianna doesn’t use pepper, but I like it)
*
Also, this is an old family recipe, so Brianna doesn’t really measure anything. I measured as I went to try to replicate what seemed about right, but feel free to experiment for yourself with the cheese and seasonings.

#4. Remove a small portion of each end of your potatoes to create a flat surface.
Cut six medium-sized potatoes into 1-1.5cm slices each.   #5. Place the potato slices with one side completely flat on the pan. #6. Rub the top side of each of the slices in the sprinkled mixture and then turn it over (so that both sides are coated). #7. Bake at 400°F. for 15 minutes and then flip. If the cheese has not yet started to stick to the bottoms, wait another 5 minutes and try again. After flipping them over, bake another 10 minutes and reassess. You want the potatoes to be baked through and crispy/browned on both sides.                                                 #8. Serve hot and enjoy!
