Spring is now here and with it comes warmer climates; so this weekend, we had a barbecue and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I usually write recipes for meat dishes, but today I figured I would share one of my favourite, go-to recipes of Garlic Roasted potatoes. These crisp tender potatoes smothered in melted butter, Parmesan cheese and seasoned with fragrant herbs are perfect for any occasion, they are scrumptious and really easy to make.
Prep time 10 mins | Cook time 30 mins
Servings: Yields 6 servings
- 1kg of red potatoes, halved
- 2 tbsps olive oil
- 5 cloves garlic, minced (or 2 tsps of powdered garlic)
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 113g freshly grated Parmesan
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 2 tbsps chopped parsley leaves (optional)
- 2 tbsps unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C and lightly oil a baking tray.
Place the potatoes in a single layer onto the prepared baking tray; and add olive oil, garlic, thyme and parmesan. Season them with salt and pepper to taste; making sure each potato is coated with all the ingredients.
Place the potatoes into the oven and bake them for 25-30 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crisp. Once cooked, mix in the butter until it’s fully melted, about 1 minute.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
