These Parmesan Roasted Potatoes are quickly tossed in olive oil and seasonings then baked till crisp on the outside.
We love pairing these oven roasted potatoes with any sort of juicy steak or my oven baked chicken breast.
Parmesan Roasted Potatoes take just a few minutes to prep before they are tossed in the oven to roast until golden brown!
Parmesan Roasted Potatoes Recipe
These Parmesan Roasted Potatoes are so delicious because they taste like crispy little french fry nuggets covered in parmesan cheese.
Sometimes finding a good side dish to go with your meal can be difficult. I’m probably super old school in the fact that I think a dinner plate needs to consist of a main dish, a vegetable, and a starch. One of my favorite starches is a potato.
They are so extremely versatile, that I always make sure to have a big bag on hand.
Ingredients Needed To Make Roasted Red Potatoes
Here’s a basic list of the ingredients you’ll need to make this delicious recipe. As always, you can find the full printable recipe in the recipe card below.
- Baby Red or Gold Potatoes – try using potatoes that are similar in size for even cooking
- Olive Oil
- Italian Seasoning
- Salt and Pepper
- Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese – you can use the canned stuff in a pinch
You can use either baby red potatoes or baby gold potatoes. This post has been updated with newer images, but as you can see in the original post I used gold potatoes and the new pictures are red potatoes.
I like these little gold potatoes because they’re so small. I cut these guys into quarters, but if you’re using larger potatoes just make sure your wedges are all roughly the same size, this will help to make sure all of your potatoes are cooked evenly.
How To Roast Potatoes In The Oven
My favorite thing about this recipe is how easy it is.
- After you cut all your potatoes place them in a large zip close bag and add a little olive oil.
- Then shake the bag to coat the potato wedges.
- Toss in some breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, a little salt and some grated parmesan cheese.
- Shake, shake, shake.
- Once the potatoes are evenly coated with the mixture lay them out on a lightly greased baking sheet and they’re ready for the oven.
Obviously you don’t need to use a plastic bag, you can also coat the potatoes in a large bowl.
How Long To Roast Potatoes
As long as you’re using a smaller potato, these tasty little nuggets will cook super fast.
You’ll want to use a very hot oven (425 degrees F) to give the outside of the potatoes a nice crisp edge, while keeping the insides nice and fluffy.
PRO TIP: Make sure to toss the potatoes about half way through to make sure they get a nice even crispness.
These tasty little tater wedges come out crispy and perfect every time.

What Temperature do you cook these at
I made these in advance of Thanksgiving as a test run and they turned out great. We all ate them up so quickly – they were the favorite item on the dinner plate. I love how easy they are to make. Why haven’t I discovered this sooner?! I’m old school too about what goes on a dinner plate and I love this as a side dish. I’ll be making these potatoes a lot more – they’re so delicious and my kids can’t get enough of them.
Nice! So glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Am always Looking For Something Different.This Seems To Be Just What I’m Looking For

Looks so easy and yummy.
This’ll go perfect with my Parmesan crusted chicken!
Made these to go along with steaks tonight. Really easy and really fabulous. The plate was licked clean. Will definitely make again.
Thank you Michelle! I’m so glad you and your family enjoyed them! I actually just made these tonight to go along with our dinner too! So good!
Made these last night Shawn, totally delicious! Loved by all.
I also made your Avocado dip at the same time… Dipped my ‘tato’s in and mmmm doubly fantastic! It’s a keeper 😉
Found these yesterday, made them today! Awesome. I pared them with homemade meatball sandwiches and used Marinara sauce as the dip (instead of ketchup). Wonderful, keep them coming!
That’s a great idea to throw everything into a bag, yet it’s so simple. They do look really crispy, and I love the Parmesan crunch when it’s baked in the oven. Can’t wait to give this a try!
Yum! I made these to go with dinner last night and they are delicious!
Awesome! So glad to hear you liked them!

Thanks Stephanie! Aren’t those little potatoes so fun to bake with?!
These are perfect little nuggets! We adore roasted potatoes, and often coat them with smoked paprika.
Oh ma gawsh! I have been addicted to my smoked paprika lately! I will definitely throw a little in there next time I shake these up! 🙂 Thanks Dara!
