Parmentier Potatoes Ingredients

All you need to make this easy Parmentier Potatoes recipe are five simple ingredients:

  • Potatoes – Ideally use floury potatoes like Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes in the UK, or Russet potatoes in the US.
  • Olive Oil – You can use vegetable oil if you prefer but I like the flavours of olive oil.
  • Salt Flakes – Maldon salt flakes are my favourite but any salt will work.
  • Rosemary – You can use dried or fresh herbs depending on what you have. If you don’t like rosemary, thyme works well too.
  • Garlic – I always use frozen chopped garlic for ease but you can use whole cloves.

This recipe is naturally gluten, dairy and egg free (making it vegetarian and vegan too) so it will be suitable for most diets.

If you cannot tolerate garlic or want a low-FODMAP version, you could substitute the garlic for garlic-infused olive oil instead.

How to make Parmentier Potatoes

Making these crispy, delicious potato cubes is actually very simple – anyone can do it!

To make my easy homemade Parmentier Potatoes:

  1. Peel the potatoes. Cut them into 2cm cubes and then place in a pan of cold, salted water. Bring the pan to the boil, then boil the potatoes for 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven tom 220C / 200C / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Once the potatoes have drained for a few minutes, give them a gentle shake to get off any last drips then pour onto a large baking tray.
  3. Drizzle the potatoes with the oil, a good pinch of salt flakes, rosemary and garlic, then toss well to ensure they are all coated. Make sure the potatoes are in one even layer, with space between them – this will ensure they crisp up.
  4. Place the potatoes in the hot oven for 35-40 minutes, turning them half way through.
  5. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with extra salt flakes and serve hot with meat or fish.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before we get stuck into this recipe, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about Parmentier Potatoes…

Are Parmentier Potatoes gluten free?

Yes, these Parmentier Potatoes only use potato, salt, oil, garlic and rosemary, all of which are naturally gluten free. These potatoes are 100% coeliac-safe.

Which potatoes are best for Parmentier Potatoes?

These crispy potato cubes work best with floury potato types such as King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes. In the US you’ll want something like a Russet potato. I have also made these with the ‘baking potatoes’ you can buy in UK supermarkets and they have worked well. But the more floury the potato type, the better.

Why are they called Parmentier Potatoes?

I always thought they were called parmentier potatoes because they are made with parmesan – but neither of those things are true! They do, in fact, NOT contain parmesan and are apparently named after a Frenchman named Antoine-Augustine Parmentier. Mr Parmentier lived from 1737 until 1813 and turned potatoes into a fashionable dish – unsurprisingly given how tasty these are!

How do you cut Parmentier Potatoes?

Cutting parmentier potatoes into cubes is simple. First peel the potatoes, then cut them into slices around 2cm thick. Cut the slices into 2cm strips, then these into 2cm cubes. Some people trim the potatoes into a square shape first, but I don’t believe in wasting perfectly good potato! Any misshapen offcuts just become extra crispy and delicious in the oven.

Can you make Parmentier Potatoes in the air fryer?

Yes! If you want to make my Parmentier Potatoes in the air fryer, follow steps 1-3 of the recipe, parboiling them, draining, then coating in oil, salt and rosemary. Tip the potatoes into the air fryer tray and air fry at 200C for 25 minutes, shaking the basket to turn them at least once during cooking.

Do I have to parboil Parmentier Potatoes before cooking?

I really recommend parboiling your potatoes before putting them in the oven when making Parmentier Potatoes. That step is there for a reason! Parboiling them ensures they have a lovely, fluffy inside and helps them crisp up on the outside.
