  • 2 pounds baby potatoes or small Yukon Gold potatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning (or a mix of dried oregano, basil, and thyme)
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Additional grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Prepare the Parmesan Coating:
    • In a large bowl, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dried Italian seasoning, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
  3. Coat the Potatoes:
    • Add the halved potatoes to the bowl with the Parmesan mixture. Drizzle with olive oil.
    • Toss the potatoes until they are evenly coated with the olive oil and Parmesan mixture.
  4. Arrange on Baking Sheet:
    • Place the coated potatoes cut side down on the prepared baking sheet. Ensure they are spaced out evenly for optimal crispiness.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. You can check for doneness by piercing the potatoes with a fork; they should be tender on the inside.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the potatoes cool for a few minutes.
    • Transfer the potatoes to a serving dish. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and additional grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
