Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Spray a large baking tray with cooking spray; pour in 1 teaspoon vegetable oil to coat the bottom.
  2. Place the potatoes cut-side down on sheets of kitchen paper to remove excess moisture (this helps them get crisp in the oven). Place potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil; toss well.
  3. Mix Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper together in a bowl. Sprinkle over the potatoes; toss to coat. Arrange potatoes, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking tray.
  4. Roast potatoes in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn over and return to the oven until golden and crispy, about 15 to 20 more minutes. Serve with soured cream, if desired.


This recipe calls for red potatoes, but you can use almost any potato. Red potatoes are normally quite small, so if your potatoes are larger, simply cut them in thirds or quarters.

I sliced the potatoes too thin, so they were very dark and crunchie. The mix was great, I used Manchego instead of Parmesan as that is asheep/goat cheese. - 25 Feb 2016
