I like potatoes in all forms, but if I had to pick a favorite, this baked version would easily be it by far.
Potatoes have been getting a bad rap in "healthy-eating" circles these days, and rather unfairly so. Potatoes are good for you as long as they're cooked in a healthy manner. For those of you who are interested in learning more, do check this out.
I made some baked fries the other day. I usually season it in one of two ways: either using a lemon pepper blend , or using whatever fresh herbs and spices I have on hand.
This is what I did recently.
5 medium potatoes, peeled and washed
3 Tbsp olive oil
Red pepper flakes
A sprig of rosemary, chopped finely
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Slice the potatoes into even wedges and place in a large bowl with all the other ingredients. Toss well to coat the potatoes with the herb-spice mix.
Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet (I line mine with some foil and grease it for easy clean-up later) and bake at 375 degrees F until lightly browned on the bottom and tender, about 35-40 minutes. Serve hot.
