Parmesan and Onion Potatoes
If you've been around Dianne's Dishes a while you've heard me talk about how picky Jamison is when it comes to what he will eat. Honestly I get bored for him. So sometimes I go out on a limb and make something that he normally eats (such as potatoes) and kick them up a bit. He of course tolerates this, though he gives me that look as if to say "Really? Again?" and then digs in and eats around my additions.
Never changes. Have I mentioned lately how much I love him? ;oP
Anyway, this was an attempt to unbore his food. He ate it, though as I said above ate around most of the additions, but at least it made me a little less bored for him for the evening. While Jamison would just prefer his potatoes plain, I really enjoy this version and will definitely be making it again...Just maybe not for Jamison! ;oP
What You'll Need:
6-8 potatoes, cut into chunks
1 onion, chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
Extra virgin olive oil
Coarse sea salt (Note: I like Celtic Sea Salt.)
Freshly ground black pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Brush a baking dish with olive oil or spray with non-stick spray. Set aside
Cut potatoes into chunks and add to the bottom of your baking dish. Add chopped onion and garlic over the top of the potatoes evenly. Next drizzle the potato mixture with extra virgin olive oil (1-2 tablespoons) and stir to coat.
Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and then top generously with grated Parmesan cheese:
Bake for 40-50 minutes until golden brown and potatoes are tender:
Notes: You could use any type of onion that you wanted for this dish. Leeks would also be a nice addition.

Ooh, I bet this would be fantastic with leeks. I'm going to have to keep it in mind. I love leeks.

Have to laugh.....You get bored for him! :)
Those look great! I make something similar but in a skillet. Hotter and more humid than Hades here in FL!

I do...I get bored for him! ;o)
I can imagine how hot it is in FL right now. I have to say I'm not a hot weather sort of person. I like warm, cool and I even like cold, but HOT not so much!

I swear if you weren't such a good cook, you'd have married a man who was a food snob.
My assistant is the same way. She has 6 basic food groups. Chicken sandwiches, pizza, bbq, chicken parmasean, and candy. She can eat on a regular bag of M&Ms for like 3 days. I can eat them in less than 5 minutes!

I was laughing the other day about how when I was dating the guy before Jamison and he didn't like broccoli and at the time I just thought that was horrible! So picky he was in my mind AND then here comes Jamison! LOL
