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!!

  1. How fabulous! I LOVE potatoes, just can't escape the craving :). Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  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.

  4. These look good Tiffanee! I have potatoes and parm, might try some tonight:@)

  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.

  6. I love the sound of this recipe - and those lovely potatoes look delish!

    By the way, I'm co- hosting a new foodie blog hop called Feed Me Tweet Me Follow Me Home and I would love it if you would come along and join in!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. They look good and easy. I'm going to try these this weekend.

  8. Woo Hoo! From one french fry lover to the other. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  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.

  11. quick, easy, and tasty...just the way I like it. Oh, that sounded kind of dirty didn't it? :)

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

  12. i'm printing this out for my kids- they love french fries- thanks

  13. Yum! My kids love these and I just bought like 10 lbs. of potatoes.

  14. Yum, yum, and more yum! I love french fries too. (I'm eating some right now!) These look delicious and I bet adding the parm cheese makes them that much better!!! Can't wait for the dip recipe =o)

  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 =)

  16. I love potatoes, fried or otherwise. These look delicious. I love that they are lighter than regular fries.

  17. Those look fabulous!!! Yum! I too have nothing but love for potatoes!

  18. This looks good! Can't wait to try it!

  19. Oh man! These look incredible! I love french fries and parmesan, but have never had them together before! Can't wait for a good night to make these!

  20. These wouldn't be safe anywhere near me!

  21. I think I just gained five pounds looking at these... because I know I'd eat five pounds worth of potatoes if I made them. I featured you today on my recipe round up :)

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
