Parmesan Potatoes

Here is one of my Father’s Day sides.  For my Hubby, meat and potatoes is his favorite meal.  So my Father’s Day menu had to include potatoes.  These potatoes are tasty yet simple.  You can cook them on your grill or in the oven, it’s up to you.

I also have a giveaway for you today. The product, prize pack, and information for this giveaway have all been provided by Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark. The “Delicious Dessert” prize pack includes a box of the new Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars and an 8×8 metal baking pan.  A prize pack was also sent to me.  With layers of chocolate cookie crumbs sprinkled over mini marshmallows in a chewy gooey chocolate center and a crunchy chocolate cookie crust, my family gobbled up the whole pan.  My husband asked when I was going to made them again.

Here are what my Mississppi Mud Bars looked like.

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment about an upcoming event or gathering at which you would most like to share Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars.  Unfortunately, you won’t have them for Father’s Day, but I am sure with it being summer you have some event or gathering coming up soon.  You have until Sunday June 20 at 10 pm (MST) to enter.  I will pick a winner and notify them by email on Monday June 21.

Parmesan Potatoes

  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. Clean and cut potatoes into 1 inch cubes, leaving skins on.
  2. Mix together oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic powder.  Drizzle over potatoes and toss to coat.
  3. If baking in oven, place potatoes in a baking dish and cover with foil.  If cooking on the grill, divide potatoes between two 12-14 inch pieces of foil, fold over and seal making a foil packet.
  4. For the oven, place pan in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes until potatoes are fork tender.  For grill, cook over a medium high preheated grill for 30-40 minutes until fork tender.
  5. Sprinkle cheese over poatotes and return to oven or grill uncovered and cook for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

  • On July 5 or 6 I will be getting together with my parents and 5 brothers and sisters. With all of us in 4 different states, and one brother in the Air Force, we can’t get together often – the stars happened to align this year. In fact it has been around 15 years since all of us were together. (We are just hoping that my brother’s latest scheduled deployment to the Middle East doesn’t mess up our planned reunion!)

  • I bake at least twice a week, so I could bake these for a Family Home Evening or just for fun!

  • I think your potatoes look divine! I would use the chocolate bars to celebrate my children’s good report cards. we always have a special dinner and these would be great.

  • In a perfect world I’d be able to travel with them to GA for the homecoming cookout for my nephew. He’s in the Army and been in Korea for the past year and will be back in GA (my home state) soon. Unfortunately it’s not affordable to travel home right now. I’ll be there in spirit though and have instructed lots of hugs be given to him on my behalf! These look really tasty!

  • I have a ladies luncheon over the 4th of July with my Baptist church. I pulled “dessert” out of the bowl this time. My ladies LOVE chocolate as my previous endeavors have proven. I have made regular Betty Crocker brownies in the past and I think it took about 10 seconds, 12 tops, for the entire pan to be polished off! These look absolutely delicious and I know we all would love to endulge ourselves into pure chocolate marshmellow bliss!

  • I bring goodies over to my Mom and Dad’s house on a regular basis as my Mom is going through Chemotherapy and doesn’t do much cooking anymore. She absolutely loves chocolate, so these would be a big hit (and a nice change from the sheet cake she usually requests).

    Those potatoes sound/look great. I’m going to try that one, soon!

  • Share? Do I have to? I wouldn’t wait for a special occasion; I’d make them on a Sunday for dessert that night, then for my hubby to take with his work lunches that week. But what I really want is that pan! No rolled edges on the sides to trap water and get rusty. I must have it!

  • Since our parents have both passed away we have tried to think of ways we could keep the family close. One idea was to have dessert parties where everyone brings a dessert to share. These Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars would be perfect to start off this new family tradition!!!
