Soft and tender new potatoes or baby potatoes are a delicious side dish recipe that compliments any family dinner. Topped with parmesan cheese these little potatoes are a family favorite recipe.
Not all potatoes are the same, trust me. I'm an Idaho girl and I can tell you that baby potatoes, often called New Potatoes, are so tender and full of flavors compared to larger potatoes.
They of course come in a red potato, and gold potato too. A mixture is also fun like I've shown here.
Pressure cooking potatoes will make them tender and soft in to time at all. One bag of baby potatoes is plenty to feed a family.
When cooked with chicken broth and other seasonings the flavor is fantastic. Make sure to check out my tips and tricks along the way for some fun substitutions too.

How to make Instant Pot Baby Potatoes
Making Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes in the Instant Pot Pressure cooker is one of my favorite quick and easy side dish recipes. I enjoy using both red an gold new potatoes but you could also use all red or all gold. And this recipe also works just fine when cutting up larger potatoes into smaller 1-2 inch cubes.
Wash little potatoes and using a sharp knife cut potatoes in half or quarters. Making each potato roughly the same size is best for uniform cooking.
Melt Butter and mix with garlic and Italian Seasoning and pour over potatoes. Toss to cover and place on a trivet, a stainless steel steamer basket, or on the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Add Chicken Broth or cold water and set pressure cooker for 5 minutes. The Instant Pot beeps after the cooking process is complete. Then you can release the pressure valve in a Quick Release. The remaining pressure will take a couple of minutes to fully release.
Top hot potatoes with freshly grated parmesan cheese and serve. It also never hurts to sprinkle with Sea Salt too.
It's a great way to enjoy cooked potatoes and works well with most any dinner recipe too. For the full recipe make sure to check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

What’s the Difference between Garlic Potatoes and Garlic Parmesan Potatoes?
Nothing, It doesn’t matter what you call these wonderful roasted potatoes. Garlic Roasted Potatoes, Parmesan Garlic Potatoes, Garlic Red Potatoes, Roasted Parmesan Potatoes, or Roasted Potatoes, they are all the same in this recipe.
I cut up the new potatoes in halves or quarters depending on the size of the new potatoes. It makes for evening cooking and bite size pieces.
When the potatoes are all the same size they will cook evenly and you won't have some that are over done with others that are still needing more time to cook.
Leftover Potatoes should be stored in an airtight container and kept refrigerated for up to a week. Reheat potatoes in microwave or using an Air Fryer for best results.
I truly love baby potatoes and I want to help you enjoy them like I do. There are so many ways to prepare these fun potatoes, I've even used them to make potato salad and I leave the skins right on because they are so tender.
