Baked Basil Fries

Hello, again! I'm so glad to be back on RITK and do I have a treat for you! I visited a teacher friend the other week and she made these for me. We've made them about every other night since.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

The Recipe

1/4 C olive oil
1/4 C Parmesan cheese, shredded or grated
1 T dried basil
1/2 tsp garlic salt (or garlic powder and salt for flavor)
5 medium red potatoes, sliced into french fries

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl. You can add more cheese if desired. We usually make it nice and thick. I haven't tried fresh basil yet but am tempted to as I'm growing some in my kitchen window. Let us know how it turns out if you go this route.

If you have a mandolin then use it on the potatoes. We don't, so I do it the hard way and cut the potatoes into french fries about a quarter inch thick.

Toss the fries in the mixture to coat them. You may have shreds of cheese hanging off the fries. That's okay. It's super delish once baked!

Spread the fries on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip the fries then bake for another 10-15 minutes or until slightly brown and crisp.

I tried to get a picture of the finished product, but they were eaten too quickly!

You won't eat potatoes any other way once you've tried these.
