Garlic Parmesan Potatoes are amazing with almost anything, I really love them with roasted meat. The crispy outer layer and fluffy insides are just what a slice of roast meat requires. However, if you’re like me, you will enjoy these golden, crispy nuggets of joy alone, with just a hefty dollop of aioli and a glass of wine. That has Friday night at home alone, in front of the TV, written all over it – don’t you think?

I used Yukon Gold potatoes in this recipe. They are my #1 favorite potato. In my opinion nothing beats them. However, any white potato will do.

When I was a kid, peeling the potatoes was my job. I used to hate it, it was such a chore. I didn’t have access to a potato peeler,  or Y peeler, I had to work around those suckers with a pairing knife – urgh! Such a chore.

I really hope you have a tool in your kitchen that can whizz around a potato in seconds – you do right?

I do hope the answer is yes, but if it’s not I’d like to give you the opportunity to experience peeling your next batch of potatoes with a Y peeler. A Christmas gift from me to you.
