PARMESAN ROASTED POTATOES

Like most people, I love potatoes.  I can make a meal out of a baked potato or just some air fried French Fries.  I bought a T-Fal air fryer a couple of months ago and I love it!  What I have discovered through trial and error is that you can cook quite a lot of things in the air fryer.  This recipe is one that I used to cook in the oven on a baking sheet that has holes in the bottom to allow for air flow.  When you put these potatoes in the air fryer, you do lose some of the coating, but the other slices seem to pick it up because the slices are constantly moving.  Anyway, here is the conventional oven version.

PARMESAN TOASTED POTATOES

3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, halved

1/2 cup slive oil

salt, pepper

4 oz finely grated Parmesan

3/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Place a rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400 degrees F.  Toss potatoes and oil in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper.  Place potatoes, cut side up, on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet; reserve bowl.  Roast until golden brown and cooked through 30 to 35 minutes.  Transfer to bowl; toss with Parmesan.  Return potatoes to rack and roast until Parmesan is brown and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.  Toss potatoes in same bowl with parsley, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes.  Top with lemon zest just before serving.

  1. I want to hear how you like your new gadget in six months. Sometimes new contraptions seem great at first, but then we lose interest. So I want to know later . . . . 😉

    • I know what you mean…you get something, use it a few times, then it goes in the cupboard or closet. However, this one lives on the counter since I got it…I use it every couple of days for something or other, and the clean up is great because the pan and palle-thing go straight into the dishwasher and nothing else is dirty. It’s also great for cooking store bought french fries, onion rings, and Saturday night I put breaded green beans in it and they turned out great.
