So simple, yet so good! These Parmesan Potatoes are coated in a flour and Parmesan cheese blend before baking in butter. The perfect, easy side for any barbecue!
My aunt and my mom have been making these Parmesan Potatoes for as long as I can remember. They are the perfect side dish for BBQ. I like mine with ketchup, but some people in my family prefer them plain. One of my favorite summer meals is BBQ’d chicken, Parmesan Potatoes, and my mom’s famous Garlic Bread!
These are also great alongside my favorite basic Turkey Burgers or Guacamole Turkey Burgers.
For this recipe, you add butter to a baking sheet and place it in the oven to melt. Then, Russet potatoes are cut into wedges and soaked in water. Meanwhile, you mix a flour coating for the potatoes inside a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish, which consists of flour, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
Once the potatoes have finished soaking, you can add a few at a time to the bag and shake to coat them. If you’re using a baking dish, you roll the potatoes in the flour mixture to coat. The potato wedges are then placed onto the pan with a flat side of the wedges down onto the pan touching the melted butter. This process is repeated with all of the potatoes.
The wedges are baked in the oven and turned half way through baking to ensure that the other side contacts the butter and that the potatoes cook evenly. The butter helps give the potatoes a nice, crispy exterior!

- 6 large Russet potatoes (peeled, cut lengthwise into sixths: cut potato in half lengthwise then each half into thirds)
- 1/2 cup 1 stick of butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Add the butter to a shallow baking pan and place in the oven to melt.
- Add the cut potatoes to a bowl of water to soak for a few minutes.
- In a resealable gallon-sized bag or a shallow baking dish, add the flour, Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.
- Add cut potatoes to the bag a few at a time and shake. The moisture from the water soak will help the coating stick. Alternatively, roll the potatoes in the coating in a baking dish. Remove potatoes and lay them on a flat side in the pan with the melted butter. Repeat with remaining potato wedges.
- Bake potatoes for 20 – 25 minutes, then turn them to the other flat side and bake an additional 20 – 25, or until golden brown.
