Today I was surfing Pinterest, wasting some time (hey, it’s the weekend). And I happened across a pin for baked fries. Well that caught my eye since we were doing hamburgers for dinner tonight. And since this is my first real cheat meal in the last week, I figured I’d try something different. 🙂 I loved the variety of spices and the bit of Parmesan cheese that would make it even more amazing. I will say this, the kitchen smelled awesome! The kids enjoyed them and agreed that they will be added to the potato rotation! Score! Click the jump for the details!
I didn’t tweak anything, except in the oil and portion. The original recipe can be found here.
Herb & Parmesan Crusted Oven Fries
2 large potatoes (2 lb total)
1/2t of each of the following: Old Bay Seasoning, Thyme, Oregano and Garlic powder
1/4t of Italian Seasonins
2T of grated Parmesan cheese (the real stuff, not canned!)
2T of shredded Parmeasn Cheese (again, fresh!), with another 1T to add when finished.
2 T of Canola Oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Wash and scrub potatoes
1 at a time, cut into wedges, I did 8 each.
Then into a gallon zip top bag, mix half of the seasonings, cheeses and oil (you are working in 2 batches).
Close up the top and toss to coat nicely.
Arrange on large cookie sheet (either non stick coated with some Pam or like I did, use a Silpat), in 1 layer
Repeat with 2nd potato. Leaving space between the fries so they can crisp up!
Bake for 45 minutes, but check with about 20 minutes left and flip fries if you want to brown the other side. Makes them crunchier. 🙂
Remove from oven and sprinkle the 1 T of shredded Parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy!
Hope you can enjoy these sometime this summer with a good hamburger.
