Parmesan Potatoes Recipe

I love using this recipe especially when I have all the family around. I love spending time with my family and when we do get together it generally does involve food. But I don’t want to be shut away in the kitchen missing out on the time I could spend with them, so I’m always looking for good recipes that can be prepared beforehand and just popped in the oven at the last minute.

This is one of those great prep before recipes and sling it in the oven when you need it, and is tried and tested. It goes well with so many things and is a real hit when I barbecue too. As always I like to make things really simple and this is. You will have the family fighting over the last potato so make plenty!


Medium size potatoes

Parsley Garlic butter

Finely grated Parmesan cheese.


Wash the potatoes and pop them in a pan, add water and boil with the skins on.

Once they are boiled and you can put a knife all the way through, then drain and set a side.

Take one slice of your frozen parsley garlic butter per potato and melt them all in the microwave.

Finally grate the Parmesan cheese and set aside.

Place the whole boiled potatoes on a baking tray and squash them down - I push mine with a masher or the back of a serving spoon. Just enough to keep the shape but open them up and out.

Drizzle the parsley garlic butter over the smashed potatoes and the top each potato with a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

At this point you can pop them into a hot oven for about 15 to 20 minutes to crisp up.

Remove from the oven when crispy and golden on the top the smell will be sensational.

Or if preparing for later cover and set aside to cool then put them in the fridge to just pop in the oven when needed. They may take a little longer from chilled depending on your oven.
