Garlicky Red Potatoes

30 Mar

I have to admit, I’m not a huge potato fan. I much prefer them fried up in a vat of grease and sprinkled heavily with salt. BUT. I am a Mom, and I do have to try and feed my kids responsibly soooo….

Garlicky red potatoes was invented! Red potatoes seem to have a much better taste to me than the typical Russets do, and the cost is comparable. Add this together with enough garlic and we’re heading down the path to some acceptable potatoes! Toss in some butter and cheese and now things are really looking up!


4-5 medium to medium-large Red Potatoes
1/4 Butter, melted
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 tsp Salt
1 Lemon
2 TBSP grated Parmesan Cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Wash and quarter the potatoes into even sized chunks. Lay a sheet of foil over the bottom of a cookie sheet or a casserole dish, spray it with Pam spray, and spread the potatoes out on it.
3. Juice the lemon into the bowl with the melted butter and add the garlic and salt. Pour the mixture over the potatoes as evenly as you can, coating as much of the exposed potato as possible.
4. Sprinkle the Parmesan Cheese over the potatoes and cover with another sheet of foil. Bake covered for 30 minutes – then remove the foil and bake for 10 more minutes.
5. Enjoy!

    These look so flavorful. I have a bag of red potatoes I need to use. You just solved my problem.
    Thanks. We’re having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa – What’d You Do This Weekend? I’d love it if you could bring this over.

    Thanks for the idea,
