More Turtles, Please

With today being Easter these potatoes are a perfect and easy side to go with the traditional ham dinner.  Mom made these often while we grew up.   A few nights back I made these potatoes to go with our roasted chicken. BAP loved them and kept calling them turtle potatoes.

Crispy Parmesan Potatoes "Turtles Potatoes"
adapted from:

1/4 cup butter
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
3/4 t thyme
1/2-3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
4 medium Yukon potatoes, halved length wise

Preheat oven to 400.  As the oven preheats, put a 9x13pan in the oven with the butter. Let melt. Remove from oven.  Sprinkle evenly with garlic, onion, thyme and Parmesan. Nestle potatoes in the mixture. Bake for 35minutes.


  1. Those potatoes sound delicious! I hope your Easter was wonderful.

  2. Gosh but your guys are getting SO big! Thanks for posting those Easter pics!
    ... And these potatoes! I have a house-full for this extended week-end so spent yesterday "stuffing" some potatoes to get ready. If I'd seen your recipe just one day sooner, I'd have saved a big bunch of time and been just as yummy! Next time!! :)
