My family loves roasted potatoes as a side dish and I love making them. They are easy and always good, and you can customize the seasonings however you like.

These roasted potatoes are tender on the inside and golden crisp on the outside. And the peas add another layer of texture with a touch of sweetness. I finish this off with salty parmesan cheese and under the broiler for just a minute or two. The little bits that get extra toasty are my favorite part!

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 pounds medium red potatoes, unpeeled, rinsed well and patted dry
  • 1 cup thawed petite sweet peas, patted dry
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped fine


Heat oven to 450°F

  • Prepare a large rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Scatter potatoes on sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle on garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss to coat, leaving a little room in between potatoes so they crisp up.
  • Roast potatoes for 10 minutes, flip and roast another 10-15 minutes. You want crispy outsides and soft fluffy insides.
  • Turn oven to broil setting high and move oven rack about 3 inches from the top. Scatter the thawed peas over the top of the potatoes. The peas will fall in between them, that's ok. Sprinkle on the parmesan cheese and broil for just a minute or two until the cheese is golden in spots. If you broil too long the peas will shrivel and loose their tender bite.
  • Toss the potatoes and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Add more salt and pepper if desired. Serve immediately.


Rinsing potatoes- This is a super important step you don’t want to skip. Rinsing some of the starch off the potatoes will ensure a crispier outside and a fluffy inside. If you want to go a step further, soaking them in cold water for 10 minutes is even better.
Simple roasted potatoes- Follow the steps above and omit the peas and parmesan cheese. A great side dish everyone will love. 
Seasoning options- 
  1. Johnny’s seasoned salt
  2. Onion powder and garlic salt
  3. Dried herbs such as Italian seasoning, rosemary, and thyme.
  4. Mrs. Dash extra spicy
Fresh garlic and herbs- Mince 2 garlic cloves and add fresh herbs like, parsley, thyme and rosemary. Mix into potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Reduce the oven temperature down to 400 so the garlic and fresh herbs don’t burn. You’ll need to increase the cooking time by roughly 20 minutes more.
