The Story Behind Roasted Parmesan Potatoes
During my freshman year at BYU, I chose to live in a dorm with a kitchen. One, I was terrified of gaining the freshman 15 if I didn’t have a kitchen. And two, I enjoyed cooking and planned on wooing all of the guys with my kitchen abilities.
The one thing, however, that I didn’t consider was learning so much in the kitchen from my roommates. In fact, one roommate introduced me to Thai food with her homemade chicken pad thai. Yum! This same roommate also introduced me to guacamole. I don’t know how I never had guacamole before I was 18, but it is what it is.
Actually, I asked my mom about this one time and she said she never bought avocados because we were already fat. I’m here to set the record straight that avocados are a healthy fat, good for you, and should always be eaten.
Another roommate would make these delicious potatoes. She would slice a potato in half, score it, rubb it in melted butter and then sprinkle seasoning salt on them. They were back face-side down and were one of my favorite things she would make.
Over the years, I have morphed that potato recipe several times. While I still love the original seasoned salt ones, I mostly just make these roasted parmesan potatoes now. They are incredibly easy to make and taste so good. This recipe is perfect for a side dish to hamburger, hot dogs, or even a roast!
