Oven Roasted Potatoes


One of my favorite side dishes beside rice is oven roasted potatoes. Of course this can be done on the grill too, but when you live in Minnesota you can never guarantee what kind of weather you are going to have, so… this recipe can be done in the oven so if it decides to snow in June, your burgers or chops aren’t without company of their own.

What you will need:

1 1/2 lb of baby red potatoes (washed and quartered)
olive oil
fresh shredded parmesan cheese ( I like Bel Giosioso)
salt & Pepper
seasoning salt (like Lawry’s)
1 Lg. green pepper
1/4 White onion



Preheat oven to 400°

  1. Once you potatoes are washed and quartered, place them in a pot to boil on medium heat for about 7-10 minutes. (the should be slightly soft, but not mushy)
  2. drain potatoes
  3. slice green pepper and onion into thin strips
  4. pour olive oil on the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet to evenly coat, sprinkle with salt and pepper
  5. place chopped onion and green pepper on top of the oil
  6. pour potatoes on top of the green pepper and onion and evenly distribute across the pan
  7. sprinkle seasoning salt, pepper, parsley, parmesan cheese (to your liking) & drizzle olive oil over the top
  8. Place in preheated oven to cook about 20 minutes
  9. at 20 minutes, switch oven to broil on LOW, broil potatoes until the cheese is browned and the tops of the potatoes begin to look slightly golden ( about 10 minutes, watch carefully)
  10. remove from oven and serve warm!
