These Crispy Parmesan Potatoes make the perfect side dish or snack! Enjoy them as is or serve them with your favorite dip! Crunchy, flavorful, and a crowd favorite!
Nothing goes better with meat than potatoes, right? Well, I do love me some smashed potatoes, loaded potatoes, roasted potatoes, etc., but I am always looking for ways to change things up!
Check out these other great potato recipes:
Last week, potatoes were on sale at my local grocery store, so I grabbed some, headed home, and prepared these to go with our dinner! Not only are these ready for the oven in no time, but they are packed with flavor. My daughter almost always asks for seconds!
These have a crispy outer coating, soft inside, and are packed with a Parmesan flavor.
I don’t know about you, but I love cooking the main dish, but when it comes to the side dish, I always seem to struggle. Its as though my mind goes blank. I forget what pairs with what and some of the time, I end up serving applesauce cups with dinner because I simply couldn’t think of anything better, haha!
Over the years, I have gotten a bit better, and now I make sure to always in a veggie and/or fruit item, which makes things easy!
The crispy potatoes are a favorite and each time I add these to the meal, my kids almost always end up going back for seconds!
Next time you need a side dish with your dinner, definitely try these! They even reheat perfectly making leftovers a hit all over again!

Crispy Parmesan Potatoes have incredible flavor! Serve them with or without dip for a tasty dish! Print the recipe below and give them a try!
Crispy Parmesan Potatoes
- 6-8 Yukon Gold Potatoes, halved lengthwise
- 1/4 cup butter, salted *melted
- 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Pour butter onto the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking pan.
- Sprinkle Parmesan generously over the melted butter.
- Sprinkle pepper over Parmesan.
- Place potato slices, cut side down, into the butter.
- Place baking pan in a preheated oven, 400 degrees, and bake for about 45 minutes.
- Once done, remove from oven and allow to sit out for 10 minutes prior to removing from pan. *This helps things get more crispy
Is this shredded cheese or powder?
It is the grated Parmesan cheese 🙂
I smashed some garlic and spread on the bottom of pan and across top of potatoes. Was delish! Great recipe, thx!
Oooooo, great addition! So glad you enjoyed these!!
I feel like these would be better with a full coating instead of just the bottom… But I like things extra crispy 🙂 Haven’t tried this recipe yet, but has anyone tried something like dipping the slices in the butter then sprinkling the cheese and pepper over top too instead of just the bottom? Wondering how it would turn out. Would the flavor be too strong?
I make something like this, I take a little flour, parmesan, salt and pepper and some garlic powder, I chunk the potatoes and put it all in a bag like shake and bake, throw a couple pads of butter in the pan bake at 350 until tender….don’t forget to toss them a bit so it gets brown all over…..
I think that would be a fabulous idea and really boost the flavor!! If you try it, be sure to let me know how it turns out!!
Yum!! Your version sounds fabulous!!
How thick are the potato slices?
I cut mine about 1/4′ thick, but you could go up to 1/2″ if desired!!
Thanks! It really is!
Please specify whether the parmesan cheese is the shredded or the grated kind you sprinkle on spaghetti. Thank you.
Oops, sorry about that! I have added that to the recipe! It calls for grated Parmesan! Enjoy!
After 45 mins It wasn’t cooked enough for me so I had to throw them back in for 15 mins. Currently waiting to see how they turn out however so far they look and taste amazing
Depending on the size of your potatoes, sometimes it can take more time. Hopefully they turn out yummy and you enjoy them, keep me posted!
The pic doesn’t represent the recipe. Thick slices vs cutting in half lengthwise. I’m guessing it’s better with thick slices, but errors like this make a person doubt a recipe.
Sorry about that! I have tweaked the recipe over time but realized I never updated the picture. I will try to do that in the next week! Thanks!
Recipe says to Recipe days to halve potatoes lengthwise. Yet pictures show rounds of potatoes!
Yep, I just haven’t uploaded new pictures. I have tweaked the recipe after making it several times, so the recipe is updated, the pictures aren’t. However, both versions of slicing work great!
I used the small yukon gold potatoes and halved them.
Followed the rest of the recipe. Absolutely delicious.
Can’t save it on pinterest.
Glad you enjoyed! I have looked into the sharing/saving settings and all should work now. Let me know if you still have problems saving! Thanks!!

It says half lengthwise but you can clearly see these are cut into rounds? Does it matter?
I go both ways cutting these days! Either works! Originally I kept it to lengthwise, but after doing it “wrong” a few times, it worked great too!

This looks yummy. I wish I could print the recipe with a picture.
Hi! Yes, this is quite tasty! I just changed the settings to include the picture at printing! Enjoy!
I followed the recipe but added more butter, parm cheese and pepper on top of the potatoes. It was DELICIOUS 😍😍
Yay! Love hearing that! Glad you enjoyed!
