I am on a mission to cook healthier meals for my family. I absolutely love to cook, and as I mentioned before I come from a culture of GREAT food. Unfortunately, fat kind of tastes…super good, but it is super bad for us. My children have a love affair with fries. I tried several methods to cook fries at home but none were successful. I even experimented a recipe I saw on Oprah once that included eggs in the mixture, but to be honest, I was not that thrilled with it. After trial an error, I came up with a recipe that my family adores. My kids do not like mashed potatoes, baked potatoes or hash browns but they would eat these “fries.”
- Russet potatoes, I usually use leftovers from a previous recipe, about 7 or 8. It works with any kind of potatoes, actually
- Salt and pepper to taste (remember Adobo is kind of salty, and so is the cheese)
- 1/2 teaspoon of adobo
- 1 teaspoon of thyme
- 1 teaspoon of basil
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- Canola oil cooking spray
- 2 tablespoons of OLIVE OIL (use only EVOO)
- 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Halfway through cooking, take them out of the oven and flip them using a spatula.
While they cook you can make “fry sauce” (in my beloved Utah) or (like we call it in Uruguay) “Golf Sauce” (salsa Golf)
Just mix up equal parts of mayonnaise and ketchup!
Here you have them after they have roasted. Some of the bigger pieces do not get that crunchy but they are still yummy.
