1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme

Prepare the potatoes:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Wash and halve the potatoes. Pat them dry to ensure they roast nicely.
Brown the butter:
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until it turns a golden brown color and smells nutty. Remove from heat.
Season and coat the potatoes:
In a large bowl, toss the halved potatoes with the browned butter, olive oil, garlic powder, dried thyme, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper until well coated.
Roast the potatoes:
Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Roast in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until they are golden and crisp. Halfway through, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and continue roasting.
