Yummy Seasoned Oven Fries

Good Morning, everyone!

Just popping in on a Monday to say hello and share this delicious recipe for fries!!!  Fries are the best, especially when they are healthier and full of flavor.  

I was watching Next Food Network Star (love that show!) and they were doing a challenge where they had to describe food in a way that would make the viewer understand the flavor of a dish, without just simply saying "delicious" or "tasty."

I'm gonna try that now.  These fries are slightly spiced and perfectly soft and pillowy on the inside with a lovely crisp on the outer edges.  They hit you with just the right amount of salt, followed with a tiny bit of heat.  I didn't even use ketchup (and I really like ketchup)!

I could eat one million of these fries.

Luckily, I had other people there to share with, so I was not forced to eat it all ;)

I used russet potatoes here, but sweet potatoes would be ah-maze-ing!  Definitely trying those next!

Seasoned Oven Fries
serves 4

5 medium (smaller than a fist) sized potatoes 
drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp Creole seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/2 tbsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Wash the potatoes & pat them dry.  Cut them lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Turn each slice flat and slice again lengthwise into even 1/2-inch-thick fries. 

Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and add the olive oil, all seasonings and Parmesan. Toss well to combine, then transfer the fries to a large oiled baking sheet and arrange them in one even layer. 

Bake for 30 minutes.

Have a Wonderful Day!
