Oven-Baked Parsley Red Potatoes


My grandmother made these parsley potatoes for as long as I can remember, and I'm 58. I bake the potatoes like she did and serve them with pork or chicken. It's a favorite of my father-in-law who always asks for them when he comes for dinner.

Prep Time:

  • ½ cup butter, cubed

  • 2 pounds red potatoes, cut in half

  • 1 tablespoon minced onion, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place butter into a large baking dish and set in the oven while preheating.

  2. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Add potatoes and onion and toss until thoroughly coated with butter; this will give them a nicely browned and slightly crisp coating.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with parsley, salt, and pepper. Toss until well coated.


These potatoes can be cooked in the oven alongside meat, just add more time if cooking at a lower temperature. They can also be made ahead of time and just reheated without losing flavor or texture. They also freeze well.
