A Parmesan cheese and basil coating provides these "homegrown" fries with their pleasant taste. "Seasoned with garlic powder and baked in the oven, they're a zippy alternative to deep-fat fried potatoes," notes Tammy Neubauer of Ida Grove, Iowa.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 medium red potatoes

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the Parmesan cheese, oil, basil and garlic powder. Cut potatoes into 1/4-in. sticks. Add to bag, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  2. Place in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes on each side or until crisp and tender.
