Baked Crispy Potatoes


While I was browsing my Instagram, I saw a recipe of a delicious looking baked crispy potatoes that I wanted to try.  I used red potatoes and added Parmesan cheese to mine.  I paired it with baked Salmon and roasted asparagus and rainbow carrot to complete the meal.

This baked crispy potatoes was so crispy and delicious and my daughters couldn't stop raving about it and wanted me to make more.  I am going to make more for Christmas and this time pair it with brown butter chicken breast with mushrooms.  I am going to share my version of the crispy potatoes for my own record.  Try it and be amazed!




Ingredients:

6-8 red potatoes, cut into 4 pieces each with skin on
Shredded Parmesan cheese, to suit
Kerrygold pure Irish butter, 4 Tbsp.
Kirkland olive oil
Himalayan pink salt to taste
Black pepper, crushed to taste
Dried Parsley to suit

Methods:

1.  Boil a large saucepan with water.  When boiling, add in the cut red potatoes and let it boil.  When boiling, turn the heat to medium and let it simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soften.  Check with fork.  When soft, pour it onto a colander.

2.  Preheat the oven to 400'F.  Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Put the soften potato on top and smash it with a fork.  Finish the rest of the potatoes.  Melt the Irish butter in the microwave and spread some butter on top of each potato with some olive oil.  Season with pink salt and black pepper and bake for 30 minutes.

3.  Take it out of the oven.  Turn the oven to broil, 500'F.  Top each potato with Parmesan cheese and dried parsley and broil until the cheese is melted and golden brown.  Serve warm and enjoy!
