How to Please a Crowd with Roasted Potatoes

Please a crowd with roasted potatoes?!

Are you wondering if I’ve lost my ever-living?


Roasted potatoes can be a most humdrum dish, right? Snoresville, baby.


Not these flavor bombs of OHMYGOSH-WHAT’S-IN-THESE?!

They are a true crowd pleaser, throwing a FlAvOr FiEsTa for your mouth.

How to Please a Crowd: Roasted Potatoes with a Twist


4 cups fat-diced potatoes, skins on (or off, if you prefer)
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
6 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese


~ Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

~ Spray large baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

~ In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and thoroughly coat potatoes.

.~ Transfer potatoes into prepared baking dish.

~ Bake for 15 minutes.

~ Remove from the oven and stir potatoes.

~ Bake for 10 more minutes.

~ Remove from oven and stir once more. Potatoes are ready when fork-tender (cook a bit longer if you like crispy edges).

~ Remove from oven, add a bit more cheese on top if desired and EAT!

I didn’t have quite enough potatoes to double the recipe (does anyone else automatically double every recipe they make?), but I made do.

I baked them in a large glass Pyrex dish.


#1: I substituted Asiago cheese for the Parmesan. If you’re a salt person, you can add a teaspoon of salt to the ingredients, maybe even some coarsely ground salt. Yurm.

#2: I have made them with a bit of crushed garlic, but you have to vigilant it doesn’t burn – so mostly I leave it out now.

Work with what you gots, people!

They are slap yo’ momma good (don’t slap yo’ momma – that’s not nice).

~ Delicious hot out of the over. Yep.

~ Perfection at room temperature as you clean the dinner dishes. Oh, yeah.

~ Insane as pan-fried leftovers (flavors got married and kept it a secret!). HALLELURJAH and pass the plate!

Garry wouldn’t stop eyeballing the potatoes on my plate after he ate his.

From this day forward, when asked to bring something to a pot luck, you can contribute Parmesan Roasted Potatoes along with Slutty Brownies, so we can all die happy and fulfilled.

It’s OK to go to the light; you’ve had Slutty Brownies and Parmesan Roasted Potatoes!

Happy Cookin’, Y’all!
