These garlic roasted potatoes have a slight hint of lemon, herbs and Parmesan cheese. Plus, they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Perfection!


  • 3 lb red potatoes (washed and halved)
  • 2 Tbl olive oil
  • 2 Tbl butter (melted)
  • 1 tsp Real Salt *
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 4 large cloves garlic (minced)
  • juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 Cup good quality Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 Cup packed fresh Italian parsley leaves and stems (chopped fine)
  • about 1/3 Cup extra parsley leaves to finish


  1. Heat the oven to 375 F. Have a large baking sheet ready.
  2. Place the halved potatoes in a large bowl.
  3. Toss the potatoes with the olive oil, butter, salt, rosemary, basil, paprika, black pepper, garlic, lemon juice and zest, Parmesan and 1/2 c parsley.
  4. Spray the baking sheet with nonstick or brush it with oil and arrange the potatoes on it cut-side down.
