Parmesan Herb Potatoes
This parmesan herb potatoes side dish is so easy and you probably already have the ingredients on hand. This recipe calls for Herbes de Provence. It’s a mixture of dried herbs and most often contains rosemary, oregano, thyme, savory, and marjoram. It adds a delicious flavor to all types of meats and vegetables. And, the fragrance is amazing!
Easy Prep and Tips
Use a mandolin, if you have one, to slice the potatoes evenly. I like to peel the potatoes first but you can leave the skin on if you prefer. Also, use the microwave to melt the butter then spoon over the sliced potatoes that you’ve placed in a casserole dish.
- 2 Large Baking Potatoes
- 1/2-1 Stick of Butter
- 1 tsp Herbes de Provence
- 4 tbsp Parmesan Cheese
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400F. Peel the potatoes, if desired. Thinly slice and place into a casserole dish. I like to "fan" the slices, like you would a deck of cards.
Melt the butter in the microwave. I use the whole stick of butter because, well, I love butter. You can use 1/2 stick of butter if that suits you better. Then drizzle the melted butter over the sliced potatoes.
Sprinkle the Herbes de Provence over the potatoes. Add salt and pepper. Then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the parmesan cheese on top. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and remove the foil. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese on top of the potatoes and bake uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Remove from oven and enjoy!
