Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

In this household, we like potatoes. The first preference is mashed. My children will even order mashed potatoes instead of fries at a restaurant. When I made these potatoes for dinner, my son said he liked them a lot but they were like our breakfast potatoes. I hadn't realized I really don't make a lot of roasted potatoes. This recipe is great and I will make it more often even if I have to occasionally make mashed potatoes too.
Parmesan Roasted Potatoes
1 lb. Yukon gold potatoes, cut into quarters
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp dry rosemary
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  3. Evenly spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet into one layer.
  4. Add the 3 garlic cloves in different sections of the pan.
  5. Roast the potatoes for 30 minutes.
  6. Turn the potatoes over and roast for another 30 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. 
  7. Remove the garlic cloves from the pan.
  8. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly over the potatoes. 
  9. Season to taste and serve.
