I’m all about easy recipes, and this roasted baby dutch yellow potatoes recipe is one of the easiest side dishes you can make!

These delicious little potatoes are simply seasoned and roasted until they’re golden brown and fork tender.

I like to add fresh herbs, like parsley or basil and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese. Roast potatoes are the perfect side dish for Sunday supper, simple weeknight dinners or a special holiday meal.

We’re a family of potato lovers, so we also love Instant Pot baby potatoes, crispy air fryer baby potatoes and microwave baked potatoes!


You only need a few simple ingredients to make oven roasted baby dutch potatoes. You should be able to find everything you need in your local grocery store:

  • Baby dutch yellow potatoes — I usually buy one’s from Melissa’s Produce, but new potatoes, baby red potatoes and creamer potatoes are basically the same thing. I
  • Olive oil
  • Dried parsley
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt
  • Onion powder
  • Black pepper
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Note — This potato recipe will work with Yukon gold potatoes as long as you cut them up into smaller pieces.

Russet potatoes, sweet potatoes and other large potatoes have different cooking times and don’t work with this recipe.

How to Make Oven Roasted Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes

First, rinse the baby potatoes under cold water. Then pat them dry with a paper towel.

If you don ‘t dry the potatoes after rinsing, they won’t brown as well.

Then, slice the mini potatoes in half. This helps these small potatoes brown evenly and cook faster.

Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Then, pour a little olive oil over potatoes.

Season the baby potatoes with a little salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. I like to add dried parsley for added flavor.

Mix potatoes with a large spoon so that they are evenly coated with the seasonings.

Next, line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. It makes clean-up easier.

If you want, you can use an unlined baking sheet or a casserole dish.

Place potatoes evenly on the sheet pan in a single layer. If they are too crowded, the potatoes won’t brown.

Cooking Time

Roast potatoes at 425 degrees F for 30 minutes, or until they are golden brown and fork tender.

Once your oven roasted baby potatoes are done baking, sprinkle parmesan cheese over top.

You can add the shredded Parmesan cheese while baking the potatoes, sprinkle it on top after they’re done baking, or leave out the Parmesan completely.

If you don’t have dried parsley, Italian seasoning works too. Fresh herbs are also a perfect accompaniment for these roasted potatoes.

Fresh rosemary, basil, parsley, and fresh thyme pair deliciously!

My favorite way to spice up this baby potato recipe is to sprinkle some taco seasoning on top, but curry powder or chili power are also great.

How to Store and Reheat

Store any leftover potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They’ll keep for 3-4 days.

Reheat potatoes in the air fryer, or bake in an oven. I wouldn’t recommend microwaving the potatoes, because they’ll get too mushy.

You can also slice up the leftovers, and use them as breakfast potatoes or in breakfast burritos.
