After our trip to Great Country Farms earlier this month it has been potatoes, potatoes, potatoes on the menu. One of the favorites for the Babe and AJ has been these oven “fries”. This family is all about the oven fries. They think they are getting away with eating junk for dinner. I’ll admit, most of the time I cheat and buy the frozen version (LOVE the Alexia products). But these fries are super easy to make and they are delicious.
Some potato fun facts:
Did you know that Americans get most of their vitamin C from potatoes? Surprised? Well we are a french fry nation. One potato (5.3oz) has 45% of your daily value for vitamin C.
Potatoes are an excellent source of Potassium (620 mg in a 5.3 oz serving) to be exact.
They are fat-free.
Raw potatoes have the potential to last for months in storage. Extend their life by storing them in a cool, dry place and do not wash them until you are ready to use them.
Rosemary Garlic Oven Fries
Serves: 4 (2 Adults, 2 Kids)
4 to 10 potatoes**
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary, Chopped
3 Lg Garlic Cloves, Minced
1 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Tsp Salt
Preheat Oven to 400 degrees.
Slice potatoes (into the fry shape) then toss with the olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 30 minutes (longer if you like them really crispy, less if you prefer them very soft).
Share and enjoy!
**We are getting towards the end of our potato stash so I had to use these smaller ones. Normally 4-5 large yukons or russets would have done the job.
***On a side note: I was in no way compensated by Alexia Foods for this post. Also, be patient with my food photography. I just received a new camera for my birthday and am so excited to use it for the blog.
