From Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello. I can't wait to eat them. Living in Napa, I often find it interesting as to what people consider to be "napa fare"

These were so good - we didn't even need ketchup for our fries! The cheese really caramelizes for a nice coating that is so flavorful. These are so easy to do too! If you don't have a nonstick baking sheet, please remember to use nonstick cooking spray. You don't want to leave any of these potatoes behind on the baking sheet! Made for Fall PAC 2011.
