Delicious substitute for french fries. My kids like these a lot! From Taste of Home.
- 4 medium russet potatoes
- 3 -4 tablespoons Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise)
- 2 -3 teaspoons seasoning salt
- Scrub the potatoes and cut in half lengthwise.
- Cut each half into 3 wedges.
- Place in a single layer on a greased baking sheet.
- Spread cut sides with miracle whip and sprinkle with salt.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes until tender.
What a neat trick to use some Mayo - Loved it. I used Hellmans lite Mayo and instead of salt I added Adobo spice Mmmm excellent
Very simple. I love trying out new potato and oven fries recipes. I had regular Miracle Whip and instead of brushing on the potato wedges, I tossed the wedges with the Miracle Whip and seasoning salt. I think the time and temp of 350 degrees F and the 50 mins is right on for my oven. Unfortunately, I got overzealous regarding the crispiness factor and upped the oven temp to 425 for the last ten minutes, which ruined the whole thing. Well, my bf still thought they were yummy, but imo I shouldn't have upped the temp, or should have only let them cook at 425 for less than 5 mins. The Miracle Whip is an interesting alternative to using oil or butter, but I'm honestly not sure how big of a difference it made in the flavor, although I believe it did affect how well these cooked. Thanks for a nice recipe Kaarin, I will probably make again. :) Served this with Recipe #7340.
These turned out great. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I cooked them for about 50 minutes then covered them with foil and cooked them for another 10 minutes. Perfect. Thanks
