This is a recipe I came up with as an alternative to regular potato salad. That was my pre-"zaar" days. I saw that there were several others posted, however none looked this easy. It is a winner every time and there are never any leftovers.
This recipe was recently submitted to a news group to which I belong. I think it is very good and hope you like it, too. Preparation time in the kitchen is just a few minutes. When the big meal is through, this is a tasty way to use up the leftover mashed potatoes.
These potatoes are not quite as crispy like fries but they're better for you because they're baked. The serving size says 4, but I eat all of them at one sitting! Adapted from Ina Garten's book,"Back to Basics"(Barefoot Contessa). Ina likes to cut them into fairly large wedges, but I like them smaller(like french fries) because I love the crispiness and get more of it with smaller wedges!
Sweet potatoes are available year-round, but their prime season is really autumn and winter. Choose potatoes that are smooth and unblemished, and use them fairly soon because they don't keep as well as other potatoes.
DH and I just saw this on a re-run of Paula Deen the other day! It sounded so good! I had some leftover baked potatoes so we turned them into these! We only used cheese and the sour cream mixture on ours but cover with your favorite fixins! It is really the grilling that makes them sooooo good! Serving size depends on if they are your meal or a side or an appetizer!
Herbs de Provence is a specific combination generally consisting of rosemary, thyme, basil, savory, chervil, mint, marjoram, oregano, and sometimes lavender. If you do not have some on hand, simply use dried rosemary; it's a safe bet. Try to buy new potatoes that are 1 1/2" in diameter for this dish. If they are much bigger, cut in half before boiling.

You must use fresh potatoes for this. These potatoes develop a crisp crust when seared in olive oil. They can be served with dinner or breakfast. Recipe from Vegetarian Planet. Cooking and prep times are an estimate.
This is a dish my family and friends ask me to bring to potluck/cook-outs! NEVER any left to bring home! (my sister brings a bowl to take what MIGHT be left) Taste great hot out of the oven or "room temperature"
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.
The BEST WAY to serve leftover mashed potatoes. We always make sure we have leftover potatoes at our house. These are sure to be a hit with your picky eaters. Really easy to vary ingredients with this dish.
