Oven-Fried Parmesan Potatoes

French Fries are a huge weakness for me......What can I say I LOVE them, but the calories and fat do not love me.  Now I have found a good middle ground to curb the cravings.  It was quick and easy.  I had to fight off the kids to get my fair share (ok not really fight, but they did love them).  I will be putting these on the regular dinner menu.   We paired them with a little of Kayla's Killer Fry Sauce (recipe to come) and they were oh so delicious!!
Oven-Fried Parmesan Potatoes
adapted from Quick & Healthy
4-5 medium potatoes, washed but not peeled (about 5 oz. each)
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
salt to taste (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Scrub potatoes. Cut in strips or slices.
Place potato slices in a plastic bag with the oil, and shake well to coat potatoes evenly.
Arrange potatoes, in a single layer, on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Sprinkle the potatoes with the Parmesan cheese and other seasonings.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked though.

If desired sprinkle with a bit of salt and ENJOY!!

YUM!!

  2. Fries are one of my many weaknesses too! These sound fabulous, but if I eat the whole batch will it really save me! I think I could.

    I am so glad you made the cookies and liked them. I made some and gave them to friends and the kids hid them and then she begged and begged for me to get them up on the blog! We just loved them too. My six year old granddaughter said she didn't want any white chips that she wanted one without those - good luck! Maybe I will make a half batch without for her one day.

  3. I love French fries to but I try to avoid them as they are killers to my figure. What does a woman have to endure to keep slim! These potatoes look like the best substitute.

  5. Oh, these look amazing, and I don't judge you for fighting with your kids over these things. I do it all the time. Why is it that the kids assume that Mommy comes last? :)
    Thanks for a great looking recipe. I've clipped it and look forward to trying it soon.

  9. Do you ever try flipping them mid-bake to get them to crisp up on both sides? Those sound so yummy!

  10. That's the way I now make my "french fries" too... they're much more healthy than the real thing and taste just as good. I love the additional seasonings that you used.

  15. sounds super good!!! can't wait to try it. i've had a similar version, you cut the potatoes, spray the sheet with cooking spray, and spray the potatoes with spray and sprinkle ranch seasoning on them and broil, turning every few minutes so they don't burn. next time i get a hankering i'm trying out yours =)
