Cheesy Lemon Parsley Potatoes

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

Aside from steamed veggies, or the less fancy baby carrots and Ranch dressing, I don’t have a lot of side dishes in my repertoire. But I believe you can never have too many recipes for potatoes. And these Cheesy Lemon Parsley Potatoes are my new favorite.

Cheesy Lemon Parsley Potatoes

Potatoes are the one side I know my kids will always eat, which I can’t always say for the steamed veggies.  

Imagine a cross between roasted potatoes and au gratin potatoes. That’s what this dish reminds me of.

Chunks of potatoes are baked in cream and garlic, then finished off with Swiss cheese, lemon zest and fresh parsley.

I also love that this dish uses a combination of red and yellow potatoes for a beautiful presentation. But you could certainly use one kind of potato and it would still be delicious!

Be sure to save this Cheesy Lemon Parsley Potatoes recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
