I promised a side dish to go with your Father’s Day Ribs! This is one amazing side that goes great with any grilled main dish! There’s nothing better than an amazing potato dish to kick up your BBQ!
I began making these Parmesan Garlic Butter Baby Potatoes a couple years ago! I wanted something different from the traditional baked potato. Something with a little personality! Boy oh boy do these have personality!
I love small red potatoes. Not to kick their cousin the “russet” when they’re down…but they are creamier in texture and flavor. (Sorry Russet…I still love ya!) These little reds are roasted in butter, garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. See… loads of personality!!!
How To Make Parmesan Garlic Butter Red Potatoes
Wash red potatoes and slice them in half. You’ll need to prepare a large cookie or baking sheet by coating it in melted butter. Make sure it covers every single tiny inch of it.
Next sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese. For this recipe you need REAL grated parmesan cheese. Not the green jar…real grated cheese is a must for this one! (I like mine extra cheesy so I sprinkle a little more on…you know…just cause it makes me happy!)
Time for the seasonings. I use garlic salt and a little cracked black pepper.
Lay your potatoes cut side down so that their little red fannies are sticking up in the air for all the world to see! (Maybe we should call these mooners? lol)
Bake for about 30 minutes until you can easily poke them in their “fannies” with a fork.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a FULL 5 minutes.
TIP: If you skip this step you will lose all that crispy yummy parmesan topping!
Use a fork pull them apart and plate them on a serving dish. The cheese is going to hang over the potato edges and that’s just fine and dandy! Just a little extra love! We all need a little extra love…right?
What you end up with is a hearty creamy buttery roasted potato, encrusted with an outer parmesan layer, and a light hint of garlic.(Kind of like the Rodeo Drive of steak fries…Ohhh-la-la!)
A simple recipe with very minimal effort involved. (Which is my kind of side dish!) Plus they pair up awesome with your favorite grilled recipes.
These can bake while the “Grill Master” is out there doing his thing! We like to serve ours with a side of Ranch or a side of sour cream. However, they are great straight out of the oven. YUM!!!
If you haven’t tried this recipe this is the perfect weekend to give it a go! I’m including the printable recipe below. To be honest…I don’t even look at the recipe any more. They’re just that simple to whip up! You really can’t go wrong with this one.
