Very Easy Oven Fries

Tonight’s recipe comes from my Great American Recipes cookbook.  I tried it about a year or so ago and got raving reviews from the family.  I’m glad that I remembered it for tonight when I was wanting something a little different from the same old mashed potatoes!   This recipe can be varied by using sweet potatoes, new potatoes, or even a mix of several varieties.

2 lbs. potatoes

1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. minced garlic

1 tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. salt

Grated Parmesan cheese

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Scrub potatoes, then cut them into even-size wedges.  Combine the olive oil and seasonings in a gallon-size resealable bag.  Add the potato wedges to the bag, seal it, and shake well to coat the potato wedges.

Spread the potatoes in single layer on a large baking sheet.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning wedges about halfway through the baking time.  Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the potatoes and bake about 10 minutes more or until golden and crisp.  Serve hot.
