  • 4 lbs. Russet Potatoes cut into 1-inch chunks, skin left on
  • 3 tbsp. butter melted
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional for serving)


  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • ¼ cup minced garlic
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • dash ground nutmeg


Preperation of the Potatoes

  • Place the 1" chunks of russet potatoes in a large stockpot and cover them with cold water, ensuring the water level is at least 2 inches above the potatoes.
  • Bring the pot to a boil over high heat. Continue boiling until the potatoes are soft and tender. Once tender, drain the potatoes well. As a note, be careful not to overcook potatoes to the point of them falling apart.

Roasting Process

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (220°C).
  • Toss the boiled potatoes with 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Spread them evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Generously season the potatoes with salt and black pepper.
  • Roast the potatoes for 30-40 minutes, flipping them every 10 minutes, until they are browned and crispy. If you want a more golden brown color, in the last 20 minutes, move the oven to 425°F. As all ovens cook at different rates, and how small you cut your potatoes matters, so make sure you monitor them, and once crispy, remove potatoes from the oven.
  • After roasting, transfer the potatoes to a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  • Evenly sprinkle 1 cup of Parmesan cheese over the potatoes. Set aside.

Alfredo Sauce Preparation:

  • In a large skillet, combine 4 tablespoons of butter, minced garlic, heavy whipping cream, and 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Season the mixture with salt, pepper, and a dash of nutmeg.
  • Heat the alfredo sauce over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • When the sauce begins to boil, stir for one more minute, then remove it from heat.

Baking Alfredo Potato Casserole

  • Pour the prepared alfredo cream sauce over the potatoes in the baking pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the dish is bubbly and hot.


  • Optionally, garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
  • This dish serves approx. 8 people as a side.


When boiling potatoes, make sure not to over-boil to the point where they fall apart. Just boil till tender and drain.
When crisping in the oven, all ovens work at a different rate. It’s important to monitor potatoes and remove them once they are slightly golden brown. You can decide your own crisp level.
