  • Parboiling potatoes to precook them ensures a crispy exterior and a fluffy soft interior, it’s a must when making roast potatoes.
  • Guarantee an even distribution of flavor by mixing in the seasonings together along with the oil and lemon juice as you toss your potatoes. This step helps fluff up the potatoes and all the loose edges will create a crispy edge. 
  • Roast potatoes can be made in either the oven or air fryer; regardless of which method you use make sure the baking tray or air fryer basket is hot when you add the potatoes to cook. The potatoes need to be flipped once while roasting.Parmesan Garlic Roast Potatoes
