  • 4 medium potatoes, scrubbed (not peeled)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon parsley
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tablespoons fresh Parmesan cheese, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the potatoes into 1/4-inch slices and toss them with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, parsley, and two tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
  3. Arrange the seasoned potato slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Flip the potatoes halfway through the baking time to ensure even cooking.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked, sprinkle the remaining two tablespoons of Parmesan cheese over the top and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  6. Serve the crispy Parmesan potatoes hot as a delicious side dish or snack.


  1. Can I use other types of potatoes?
    • Yes, you can use other varieties of potatoes such as Yukon Gold or red potatoes. Just keep in mind that different types may require slightly different cooking times.
  2. Can I use dried parsley instead of fresh?
    • Yes, you can substitute dried parsley for fresh parsley if that’s what you have on hand. Use about half the amount called for in the recipe since dried herbs are more potent than fresh.
  3. Can I add other seasonings to the potatoes?
    • Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with additional seasonings such as smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, or chili powder to customize the flavor to your liking.
  4. Can I make these potatoes ahead of time?
    • While these potatoes are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, you can prepare them ahead of time and reheat them in the oven for a few minutes to crisp them up again before serving.
  5. Can I use grated Parmesan cheese instead of fresh?
    • Grated Parmesan cheese can be used as a substitute for fresh Parmesan, but the flavor and texture may differ slightly. Freshly grated Parmesan typically yields the best results.
  6. How should I store leftovers?
    • Store any leftover potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Reheat them in the oven or toaster oven to maintain their crispiness.
  7. Can I add other toppings to the potatoes?
    • Yes, you can get creative with toppings such as bacon bits, green onions, or sour cream for added flavor and texture.
  8. Are these potatoes gluten-free?
    • Yes, this recipe is gluten-free as long as the seasonings used are also gluten-free. Always check labels to be sure.


  1. Use a mandoline slicer: For evenly sliced potatoes, consider using a mandoline slicer to ensure uniform thickness.
  2. Soak potatoes in cold water: Soaking the sliced potatoes in cold water for about 30 minutes before baking can help remove excess starch, resulting in crispier potatoes.
  3. Space out the potato slices: Make sure to arrange the potato slices in a single layer with some space between them on the baking sheet to allow for even browning.
  4. Adjust seasoning to taste: Feel free to adjust the amount of seasoning and Parmesan cheese according to your personal preference for flavor intensity.
