Roasted Red Skin Potatoes With Breadcrumbs

Roasted potatoes of every description are delicious as a vegetable side dish, but this potato dish uses small red skinned potatoes, and after rubbing them in olive oil they are tossed in a seasoned Parmesan cheese and breadcrumb mix before baking.

The finished potatoes are creamy soft inside with a crisp, golden brown exterior. These potatoes would be a great side for any roasted meat, poultry, or seafood entree. I like to use Panko breadcrumbs for this dish as they stay very crisp, but any good quality breadcrumbs would work too!

Buon Appetito!

  1. These were excellent …. the only thing I did differently to ensure crispy potatoes was to soak the potatoes first (after cutting them) and roughing up the surface area a little so more of the crumb mixture would adhere to the potato … they came out extra crispy and very favorable ..This will be the way I make roasted potatoes from here on out! PS …. I also made my nonna’s homemade veal and spinach ravioli ….so I am all about Italian food forever! I am glad I found your site, I will try other recipes in the future
