Flavorsome Roasted Potato

I really don’t know what to do with this packet of US potatoes that I had bought a week ago from Jusco. Searching for a recipe that is simple and yet delicious is not hard..there are thousands of them in internet. After looking through recipes after recipes, I decided to put them together and create one that is delicious and am sure Daddy would love too. This is the most important factor when it comes to a new recipe :p I know the other half loves US potatoes…its more fluffy compared to others :) so be it...Flavorsome Roasted Potato ! :)))
I ransacked my pantry and found these items - garlic salt, dried parsley, paprika and ground black pepper …whoa..perfect for this roasted potato that I was going to make for our lunch. It took me just 20 minutes to cook the potatoes to tender. Drain dry and cut them into wedges. Place them on parchment lined tray. Sprinkle garlic salt on them evenly, followed by black pepper, parsley , paprika and drizzle lots of olive oil over them. Garnish them with grated mozzarella cheese. Bakethe wedges in the preheated oven at 200° C for 30 minutes or less until the mozzarella has melted and the potato skins are crispy. Take out and sprinkle parmesan cheese over the roasted wedges. Simple to prepare and the end result, a tray of delicious flavorful wedges to satiated our hungry stomach. We had this for lunch, with a bowl of mushroom soup out of a tin and grapefruit for dessert. It was a great Sunday lunch for us!
