One of Bear Cubs classes at school this trimester is cooking. Earlier this week they made oven fries. He liked them so much that he asked if we could make them at home.
He did all the work, I documented.
- 2 large potatoes
- 4 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon onion salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon chili pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients together.
Scrub potatoes and remove any bad spots. At this point you can either peel the potatoes or leave the skins on. We left them on.
In a small microwave proof bowl, heat your butter for 10 seconds at a time until completely melted.
Bake for 15 minutes for soft fries, 20-25 minutes for a more crisp fry.
*Despite the butter, several of the smaller fries did stick to tinfoil on our cookie sheet so you might want to use a cooking spray first.
These came out very nice and tasted great! Well done BC! We had them with butterfly pork chops and green beans.
Hopefully I’ll get BC to come back and cook again soon!
