NOTES: These crispy parmesan potatoes are showing up all over social media and with good reason…they are great! I personally think it is because of all the scoring on the potatoes. It creates all these crispy edges when baked in the cheesy, seasoned paste making them delicious.
I put my own spin on these by using a rosemary flavored olive oil and butter in the cheese paste. Of course, I doubled down with more rosemary in the paste. The dipping sauce is the perfect pairing with these potatoes. Think of baked potatoes and sour cream only this is a tangy yogurt with a slightly sweet pomegranate balsamic vinegar added for an extra punch of flavor. I sprinkle it with fresh pomegranate seeds for even more flavor. YUMMO!
I love that the cheese kind of melts into the potatoes getting super crispy… don’t mind if pieces get dark… I kind of love those slightly burnt pieces. They are actually the best part of this dish!
If you like this pairing of rosemary and pomegranate, be sure to try these other dishes using that same flavor combination: Beef Stew with Rosemary and Pomegranate, Steak Crostini and my Rosemary & Pomegranate Butter Board. All use the Patricia and Paul Artisanal Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar noted in the recipe.
