A simple recipe for oven baked fries, is what I have for you today. The addition of a few herbs and Parmesan cheese gives these beauties a fabulous flavor. They are very simple to make and go well with all kinds of things like the French Onion Burger Of Wonder, Sloppy Joes or Grilled Chicken Caesar Wraps.
Dip them in some ketchup, or stir some mayo and BBQ sauce together to make a handy dip. Make them for lunch, make them for dinner or make them at 9 PM while you watch the Olympics.
Which are pretty spectacular, by the way. Watching a man with artificial legs run the 400 meter dash is really something, wouldn’t you say? Very commendable, indeed.
Have a great day, everyone. Hope you come back soon.

Time: 10 minutes hands on + 20 minutes baking
Yield: 7-8 servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
PRINT RECIPE WITH PICTURE
6 russet potatoes
2 T olive oil
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t thyme
4 T Parmesan Cheese (I used Kraft)
Salt and Pepper
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
2. Wash your potatoes well. Slice them into 5 or 6 half inch pieces.
3. Divide the slices in half and lay each half face down in a stack. Slice each stack into 4 or 5 half inch slices.
Cutting your potatoes this way will make them even in size (for the most part, don’t get a ruler out or anything) allowing them cook evenly.
4. Toss your pretty potatoes into a large bowl and drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the top of them.
Take a large pair of tongs and toss the fries around, making sure they all get a bit of oil on them.
5. Measure 1/2 teaspoon oregano and 1/2 teaspoon of thyme out into your hand. Crunch the seasonings between your fingers as your sprinkle them over the top of the potatoes. This really enhances the flavor of the seasonings.
6. Add a bit of salt and pepper
and then sprinkle 4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese over the top.
7. Toss it all together, making sure every potato gets some of the coating.
8. Spray 2 large cookie sheets with cooking spray and lay the potatoes out evenly.
9. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring once or twice while they cook. When they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside they are done.
