Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Potatoes

Chad is a meat and potatoes kinda guy, I am sure it had something to do with him growing up in Iowa. I think he could live on ’em, well add a side of corn and I think he is all set. haha. Needless to say I am always looking for ways to jazz up the standard meat and potatoes for him. Honestly we eat more Mexican food than anything else, so when he does get his meat and taters, I want them to be special.

When I am looking to make something spectacular there is nothing quite like pulling out the cast iron skillet and whipping up some roasted potatoes for dinner. We were having the best ever pot roast for dinner the other night, which incidentally is so good I thought Chad was going to drink the gravy with a straw. Anyway, cast iron skillet roasted potatoes were the perfect side dish that this dinner needed.

I had fresh herbs on hand from making the roast and knew they would be perfect with the garlic and Parmesan cheese. Butter, olive oil, garlic and a little (or a lot) herbaceous love qualifies this side dish for a spot in the permanent file. Not to mention a whole cup of fresh Parmesan cheese.


Don’t buy the pre-shredded cheese for this dish, it won’t melt properly. You can adapt the recipe to suit whatever fresh herbs you have on hand, but I love the combination of rosemary, thyme and parsley. Fresh herbs really take this dish to a whole new level.

These potatoes were amazing. They are perfectly tender and bursting with flavor. Chad and I both devoured them and I may have had a bowl or 3 for dessert too. I know you are going to love them.

  1. Could you please tell me the cheese blends in the Mexican Cheese blends for the Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pull Apart Bread.

  2. I'm confused by one direction in the cast iron skillet recipe. After combining the butter/oil/spices, you say to brush mixture on skillet, then in the next sentence you say "brush potatoes with mixture". So when you brush the skillet with the mixture, do you only use half of the mixture and the other half for the potatoes"? I hope you answer this soon, as I"m thinking of making these with my prime rib for Christmas dinner. Thanks.

    1. Hi Denise, you are correct. Half on the skillet half on the potatoes. I updated the recipe too. Thank you and let us know how it goes. Have a Merry Christmas.
