Smoky Parmesan Roasted Potatoes
- 4 medium red potatoes
- 3 Tb olive oil
- heaping 1/3 cup parmesan cheese (preferably the good stuff from Italy, in the gourmet cheese section)
- 1 tsp granulated garlic
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp hot smoked paprika (preferably Spanish)
Preheat oven to 425 F. If you have a convection oven, turn that part on too.
Wash and dry the potatoes. Cut each in half lengthwise and then cut each half into thin wedges, about 5-7 each side depending on the size of the potato. Put them in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil.
Mix the cheese, garlic powder, salt and smoked paprika in another bowl. Add this to the bowl with the potatoes and toss to coat.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray (you could also just grease with more olive oil). Dump the potatoes onto a cookie sheet. A half-sheet pan works well. Make sure the potatoes are in ONE layer.
Bake for 25 minutes. Take out of the oven and turn over all the potatoes. Put them back in the oven for 10-15 more minutes until crispy.
