Patatoos!Posted in : food, foodie, funny, humor, potato, recipe, side, Uncategorized on by : Jeanette Schramm
When I went to Idaho at the beginning of the summer, I bought a bottle of fry sauce. For those of you who have never had your taste buds christened with this delightful condiment, imagine thousand island dressing, but better. It’s a ketchup and mayo base, usually. This particular brand I have tastes like it might contain barbecue sauce. Yum!
Initially, I had just planned to buy some frozen french fries and reheat those whenever I wanted a snack, but upon further inspection of my freezer, I realized there was really no room. Instead, I went to a local farmer’s market and bought a sack of potatoes.
It turns out that potato wedges are actually super easy to make. Who knew!
Here’s what you’ll need:
5 medium-sized potatoes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning (if you don’t have this, it’s also really good on top of cream cheese on bagels)
3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
First, you’re going to want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Wash the potatoes thoroughly, dry them off, and cut them into whatever size and shape you want them to be before transferring them to a large bowl. Personally, I prefer potato wedges to be wedge shaped, but you could also make little cubes or sticks or dodecagons if you really wanted to. I won’t judge you.
While I was washing the potatoes, I found a particularly large one with a smiley face on it. It’s so cute. See?
In the bowl, add only the olive oil and toss the potato [insert shape here]s until they are evenly coated in the oil. Add the spices and the cheese and continue tossing the potatoes until they all have a pretty even coating of goodies.
Place the potato pieces on the lined baking pan in a single layer and bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on the desired texture and size of the potato chunks.
Enjoy, and share with friends! They’re super flavorful, a little bit spicy, and OHHHHH so tasty!!
