Turn up the flavor on your standard roasted red potatoes with Parmesan and dill. The combination of flavors in these Parmesan and Dill Roasted Red Potatoes will have you coming back for seconds.
We are a big fan of potatoes in our house. The number one go-to potato side dish is french fries. Go figure, right?
Well, we have two young kids at home and french fries are easy to make and fun to dip.
I do try to swap in some roasted red potatoes everyone once in a while, or mashed potatoes, but french fries are still the girls favorite.
We usually toss the red potatoes in olive oil and some salt and pepper. I don’t typically get too fancy with potatoes.
The girls turn their heads away from their plates and snub red potatoes. Why? They aren’t super flavorful and they are not as easy to dip in ketchup.
I tried cutting them into strips once, but as you might have guessed, they are still not as crunchy and tend to flop.
My next attempt was to make them taste so good, that my girls would not care what they looked like or that they are not dip-friendly.
I know that my girls like dill chips and chips with cheese, so I mixed the two flavors together. Win!
The combination of Parmesan and dill had the potatoes flying fork first off the plates. They are delicious and pack enough interesting flavors that my girls didn’t even dip them in ketchup.
At one point I heard one of my girls say, “They are better than french fries!”
One of the great things about potato dishes like this is that you can serve it any time of the year.
It works well for special occasion meals like Easter and Thanksgiving, and this dish is so easy to prep that it’s a perfect fit for people with busy lifestyles who don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen but like to prepare meals at home.
