These crispy potatoes might be the easiest-ever to prep. Choose prewashed baby potatoes (they’re available in most grocery stores), which saves you a step. The petite potatoes cook whole, so you don’t even have to get out a knife. Opt for ones that are about 1-inch in diameter. And if you purchase grated Parmesan cheese, you save yourself yet another step. Even better than the low lift, though, are the crispy texture and super-savory flavour of these spuds. They’re bound to become your go-to easy side dish.
