Gold Yukon potatoes are roasted to tender perfection and coated with garlic, Parmesan cheese and other seasonings. These roasted potatoes are the perfect side dish for fall, or even Thanksgiving dinner.
My kids aren’t fans of potatoes, so it’s not often that I make them. I, on the other hand LOVE potatoes in any form, fried, mashed, roasted. You name it, I’ll devour it. Since this deep devotion to those savory spuds wasn’t passed on to my kids, I don’t often add them to my menu.
The other day I just had a craving so I picked up a bag of Yukon golds at the grocery store. I knew I wanted to roast them and I had a plan to make a recipe I’d seen for mustard potatoes. Sounds good right? Well then I realized I didn’t have mustard, of any kind. I hate it when that happens. It must have been serendipity though because I did have a brand new package of fresh Parmesan. Once I had roasted the potatoes in olive oil, garlic and salt, I tossed them in a whole bunch of freshly and finely shredded Parm.
Then I roasted them some more, and you guys, something amazing happened. The cheese melted and got crispy all over these already delicious potatoes. It was the most amazing thing. Try them, I know you’ll love them!
