Herb and Cheese Oven Fries

This is one of my favorite side dishes because it goes so well with burgers -turkey burgers in our house and it's really simple. It is a Rachel Ray recipe tweaked a bit.

Ingredients:
(serves 4-6 as a side)

-3 medium sized all purpose potatoes (like russet)
-olive oil
-garlic powder
-italian seasoning
-ground black pepper
-grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450. Spray a big cookie sheet or pan (or whatever sizes you have). Cut potatoes into long wedges. I usually get around 8-9 wedges out of each potato. You don't want the wedges to thick or too thin- see the size I have mine in the picture. Arrange them on the sheet/pan and drizzle olive oil over them (just enough to coat). Then sprinkle with as much garlic powder, italian seasoning, and pepper as desired. Bake for 15-20 min. Flip over each potato wedge so the seasonings are on the bottom and sprinkle with parmesan to your liking. I am a cheese lover so the more the better! Cook another 10 min before taking out to cool for a few minutes.

I like to serve with ketchup and Eric perfers BBQ sauce but they are also good plain. These really are delish and better for you since they are BAKED. I can't eat fried food so this is a big plus for me! I think they taste just as good as fries from restaurants etc. plus they aren't greasy and you actually taste the potato! Now that I think about it this could be a great appetizer also... maybe served with some sour cream or ranch, yum! I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you probably always have all of those ingredients in your kitchen except for the potatoes so thrifty as well :)

Enjoy!

  1. I love these two. I put all of my ingredients in a ziploc bag and toss it around to get them coated well before putting them on the pan. It works really good and they are delicious. Sweet potatoes are just as good too, but without the seasonings.

  2. I make these too! They are super delicious and great for feeding large groups. ( I had four kids, so it was quite thrifty.)
