When it comes to hosting a holiday or dinner party, there's almost always some sort of potato dish-and why wouldn't there be? They're versatile, inexpensive, and irresistibly tasty. Although many of our beloved potato recipes call for butter and cream or a deep fryer, there are many ways to prepare a lighter rendition.

This guilt-free potato recipe uses only five simple ingredients and is baked in the oven. The best part? They're ready in less than an hour from start to finish. I must warn you, the scent of savory garlic and parmesan will have your family swarming the kitchen.


  • Non-stick cooking spray

  • 4 large Russet potatoes

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ½ cup finely shredded parmesan, plus more for serving

  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray an 18- by 13-inch baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

  2. Scrub and rinse potatoes. Cut each potato in half then cut into large wedges (about 8 total per potato). Place potatoes on baking sheet.

  3. Drizzle with olive oil, top with parmesan, rosemary, garlic powder and season with salt and pepper (about 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper). Toss lightly. Then spread into an even layer.

  4. Roast in oven for 30 to 35 minutes, turning potatoes to opposite cut side halfway through. Broil during last 1 to 2 minutes to crisp them up even more.

  5. Top with a few more tablespoons parmesan and parsley. Serve warm.
