These herb roasted potatoes are full of the flavors of onion, garlic, oregano, Parmesan, and Cheddar. They are incredibly easy to make, and the recipe is easily multiplied. The herb and spice amounts are not set in stone, so it is really not necessary to measure. Just sprinkle on using your own judgement. Feel free to experiment with other herbs.

Herb Roasted Potatoes Recipe
6 medium red potatoes (about 3-inches in diameter), scrubbed clean, skins on (may substitute gold potatoes)
2 Tablespoons (about) olive oil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed to release flavor
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (not the canned stuff)
2 Tablespoons finely-shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Arrange the whole red potatoes on a paper towel around the outer edge of the glass turntable in the microwave. Cook on High for 8 to 9 minutes. They should still be a bit firm, not soft when you squeeze them. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a shallow baking sheet with nonstick foil.
Slice the potatoes lengthwise in half and place cut-side up on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the olive oil.
Use your finger to spread the olive oil over the top of each potato half so it is completely coated. Sprinkle with kosher salt, onion powder, garlic powder, crushed dried oregano, pepper, Parmesan, and Cheddar.
Bake for 30 minutes until browned and crispy. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Yield: 6 servings

User Rating: 5 StarsRecipe Tester Comment: “These were a hit with the entire family. I love that they had cheese but just a little. I quartered the potatoes and they were so fantastic. My son is not much of a potato fan but he loved these. I used Yukon golds. Yum! Thank you for the recipe.” — ctexeira05
