These fries seem to go with everything from sandwiches to dinner parties and are appealing to kids and old folks... A handy recipe to keep in your cookbook.
- 4 large baking potatoes
- 1⁄4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
- 3⁄4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoons seasoning salt, of your choice
- Cut each potato into 8 wedges and brush each wedge with mayonnaise.
- Stir together Parmesan and seasoned salt and sprinkle evenly on potato wedges.
- Place wedges in a single layer on parchment paper lined baking sheet, or a greased baking sheet.
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until wedges are tender.
I must admit- I did cheat on these and use the full-fat mayo. The flavor was really nice, but I found that the mayo prevented them from crisping well. Like other reivewers, I did find it problematic to get the cheese to stick to the fries and I ended up with a fair amount of cheese burnt onto the pan (luckily, it was lined as directed, so it wasn't a problem!) I thought the flavor was good, but despite cooking mine longer than directed, they still were a little soft (like baked potato texture). Thanks for a nice oven fry recipe, Geema.
This is a recipe that uses ingredients I always have on hand. It was fairly easy to prepare. I cut my potatoes into thinner pieces because we like them crisp. I also put about a third of the slices into a plastic bag and topped them with about a third of the mayo and squished them around until coated. I repeated with the rest of the potatoes. I sprinkled mine with seasoing salt and garlic, then topped with parmesan cheese. Then I separated them on the pan for even cooking. I baked them about 20 minutes, turned them then baked a bit longer until nice and brown. These are very tasty potatoes! Thanks for sharing your recipe Geema!
I enjoyed these oven fries very much, I cut the recipe back for one potato, had a hangering for fries and was on my own tonight. I had a little trouble keeping the cheese on the fries and the cheese burned a little on some of them. The taste was great and I will try them again, perhaps next time I will add the cheese about half way through cooking them. They were nice and crispy on the outside and soft inside. Thanks for sharing.
