Parmesan Baked Baby Potatoes

Yesterday was a lazy Saturday, with a lot of food and movies. I made some hot cajun chicken and a portion of these amazing parmesan baked baby potatoes. It made the perfect setting for movie day and by the end of it, we had wiped our plates clean. Potatoes are food for the soul. When baked, their crispy skin is pure joy to devour. Top it all of with some sour cream on the side and you are all set 🙂
