Italian Roasted Cheesy Potatoes

An easy and yummy recipe for Italian Roasted Cheesy Potatoes. These potatoes are loaded with yummy goodness in every bite! You’ll definitely want to try these!


Who loves roasted potatoes? I prefer them over mashed potatoes. I could literally sit and eat an entire bowl of roasted potatoes. When they are done right they are soooo good! The worst is when you are ready to dive into a bowl of roasted potatoes and they are not seasoned enough, or even worse not roasted enough.


If you ask me what makes a good roasted potato is a crispy outside and super soft and buttery center. Top that with lots of flavor including garlic and you got one tasty roasted potato!

These Italian Roasted Cheesy Potatoes have it all, plus CHEESE! What could be better right? Of course you could omit the cheese if you want to and still have one tasty potato but who’d want to do that?

These little potatoes are loaded with flavor in every bite! Trust me, once you try these you’ll never roasted potatoes any other way again!

Not only do these make a tasty side dish, but double or triple the recipe to take to a party or a potluck!


My secret to the perfect roasted potato is to cook them cut side down for most of the way so they get nice and crispy. The last few minutes I flip them over. Total potato perfection!

The other thing that makes these little tots delish is the seasoning blend which includes lots of garlic, rosemary, paprika, salt and pepper. That’s it! At the end toss in some finely shredded Italian-Style cheese and cook for a few minutes longer until the cheese is nice and melted, then sprinkle with some parmesan and you are in potato heaven!

What I also love about these potatoes is how easily I can make them thanks to my Pampered Chef Close & Cut! If you hate wasting time cutting potatoes like I do, or even grapes, tomatoes, chicken, bagels, you name it, you need this in your life! It makes slicing a breeze! Simply place your potatoes or whatever your slicing in the Pampered Chef Close & Cut and in seconds you have perfectly sliced potatoes, or whatever you are slicing! Total lifesaver in the kitchen!

I love to use The Little Potato Company Potatoes. They cook great and the perfect size. For this recipe I used the Dynamic Duo Red and Yellow Creamer Potatoes.ย 

Reynolds non-stick aluminum foil is great! I love to use this for roasting potatoes. The potatoes don’t stick and it’s easy clean up!
