A fast and tasty way to cook potatoes. Think a combination of baked and fried. Only two ingredients. No hassle cooking while you prepare the rest of the meal. This is a family favorite. The recipe can be adjusted without effort for the number of people you plan to serve.
We make breakfast for our Saturday staff and students and I was requested to make a large batch of Greek home fries. In a hurry after work on Friday, I decided to experiment. These are now the Saturday potatoes side for the breakfasts at school. I also have to make additional amounts as DH and DS said "not fair" if we do not get any. LOL Enjoy! I reduced amounts for a family of 4-6 not the 30 I need to make for Saturdays. adjust seasonings to taste.
I saw Melissa make these on the Next Food Network Star show and wanted to try these for my family. Quicker baking time with the smaller portions. NOTE: I layered the potatoes, cheese, seasonings and onion several times and cooked it closer to an hour in my oven.
This is a wonderful recipe. its a kid and adult pleaser. Crispy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside. Every one at the table fights over these when i make them.
I've had sweet potatoes fries at restaurants several times. but i tried to come up with a baked/roasted version... reduce the fat increase the taste.
I like to cut up the potatoes length wise... so my fries are nice and long. also i like them to be about a 1/3 of an inch thick.
Take a break from usual baked potatoes-and keep the oven cool in the meantime-by cooking these spectacular "spuds" on the grill. Since there's no need to boil the potatoes ahead of time, this tasty, no-fuss favorite is sure to become a timeless classic in your recipe collection. Courtesy of Simple and Delicious Magazine.
From Australian Super Food Ideas. A very tasty potato dish. Have included cooking time for boiling potatoes and making sauce and oven time. I think you could make this ahead and keep in the refrigerator but would have to take out for at least 30 minutes before cooking and would cook at a slightly lower temperature for longer to ensure it heats all the way through.
NOTE 28 May'10 - Tasty cheese = cheddar, usually a young one; my personal preference is a sharp or aged vintage one depending what I have on hand but all will work well but just give a different depth of flavour. Also a sprinkle of paprika on top (or mixed with breadcrumbs does not go wrong - not unusual for me to do on a cheesy topped dish).
This is a recipe I litally threw together in a pinch to accompany burgers flavored with montreal steak seasoning. The fries turn out tender on the inside and crispy on the outside with the flavors of montreal steak seasoning. Please be warned, though, that these are lightly salty. DH and I enjoy a bit of saltiness, so that wasn't a problem for us.
