GOLDEN PARMESAN POTATOES


Crisp wedges of potato roasted with Parmesan cheese
are a healthy substitute for the fried kind.


Cut potatoes into wedges.


Melt butter in a foil or parchment-lined baking sheet.


Arrange seasoned potatoes on baking sheet.
On this day I did a big batch so the sheet is full.


They shrink a bit as they bake.


This is a view into the oven where the potatoes have reached
a golden brown ... crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Very delicious!

GOLDEN PARMESAN POTATOES

6 large potatoes, raw
1/3 cup butter or margarine

Wash, peel and cut each potato into 8 wedges.
Melt butter in a 10 x 15 - inch rimmed foil or parchment-lined
baking sheet.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
seasoned salt and/or parsley flakes

Combine flour, cheese and seasonings in a heavy plastic bag.
Moisten potatoes with water.  Add a few at a time to bag and shake,
coating potatoes well with cheese mixture.  Place on baking sheet.
Sprinkle with seasoned salt and parsley flakes if desired.
Bake in preheated 375° oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes,
turning every 15 minutes until they are crisp and golden brown.
