Lemon Parmesan Roasted Potatoes


Serves 8

So many favorite flavors come together in these delicious potatoes. Melted parmesan, fresh citrus and creamy potatoes. So yum.

1 1/2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes, halved
1 1/2 pounds baby red-skinned potatoes, halved
Kosher salt
4 cups cubed day-old sourdough bread (crusts removed)
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, grated
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest, plus wedges for serving
Freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch; season with salt. Bring to a boil and cook over medium-high heat until just tender, about 7 minutes; drain.

Meanwhile, pulse the bread in a food processor to make coarse crumbs; combine with the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Add the potatoes and toss.

Arrange the potatoes cut-side down on a baking sheet. Roast until golden and tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the parsley and parmesan; continue roasting until golden brown, about 5 more minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, season with salt and serve with lemon wedges.
