Parmesan Garlic Potatoes

Yeah, okay, this is basically a combination of three of my favorite things, stuck in the oven for two hours.


  • potatoes
  • olive oil
  • parmesan
  • pepper
  • garlic
  • sea salt

I grated some fresh parmesan, because we had a block. Grate until your hand hurts! I used about half of our fairly narrow wedge. Add some olive oil and some pepper and a bunch of garlic. Like, a lot of garlic. I would go so far as to characterize it as an irresponsible amount of garlic. Like a third of a cup of diced garlic. We like garlic.

Then potatoes! I used five largish ones, mixed everything together, and sprinkled sea salt on top. Sea salt and only putting it on top are both because I wanted the slightly larger size, because everything else was in larger bits. If it’d been mixed up with the oil, it would have dissolved a bit, so there would have been taste but not texture. Then I stuck the whole thing in the oven. I checked them it an hour, mixed everything up, and covered it in more parmesan – the powdered kind, because it’s faster and we have that, too. Then back in the oven for another hour.

Like, whatever, you could probably do it at higher heat for shorter (though you’d risk burning the garlic), but I wasn’t all that hungry and had a paper I wanted to try to finish before dinner, so more time wasn’t a bad thing.

T gives them a thumbs up and goes back to playing Mass Effect.
