Drizzle with olive oil and season with the smoked paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and oregano, toss until all the potatoes are coated well.

Preheat oven to 200C. Prepare a baking tray with baking paper.
Sprinkle a generous amount of parmesan on the baking paper. Place the halved baby potatoes cut side down on the parmesan cheese.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown.
