A-Z Challenge Letter F

A-Z Challenge F is for Fries! French fries are my favorite comfort food. I am always ready to eat fries. There is something so awesome about fresh cut potatoes. Here is a great recipe for steak fries. I could eat these every night they are so good. Hope you like them too!

Over Roasted Steak Fries
3 large Yukon Gold Potatoes, halved lengthwise and cut into ½ inch thick wedges (Approximately 1.2 -2 pounds)

1 tsp granulated garlic
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tsp chopped thyme
¼ cup fresh parsley leaves

Preheat oven to 425. In a medium bowl toss the sliced potatoes, granulated garlic, oil, thyme and sale and pepper until the potatoes are evenly coated. Spread the potatoes in an even layer cut side down on a large rimmed baking sheet.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are browned on the bottom and very crisp. Transfer the potatoes to a serving platter and sprinkle with the parsley leaves and serve.
(There are never any left over when I make these.) Enjoy!

    1. Yukon Gold have such an amazing flavor. I prefer them, but any potato you have on hand will do.

  9. These fries sound amazing. I make some that are similar but I only use paprika,salt & pepper. I'm gonna try 'em with the garlic and thyme next time I make fires. Thanks!

    BTW, I made the cheesecake yesterday, it was scrumptious. More to follow.

    1. YAY! I am so glad you liked it as much as we did. My mom and I loved the lemony flavor. My dad prefers the heavier version of the cheesecake, but that is SO heavy sometimes it makes me sick.

  11. Hi Faith!

    I'm hopping over from A to Z Challenge and wanted to say good luck with the challenge. I'm a children's author and this month I will reviewing picture books on my blog.

  12. Sounds delicious. My sister is a really good cook as well. She started in her teens in Food and Nutrition and hasn't looked back. Her baked chicken yesterday was finger licking good. I think it's great that you can cook so well at a young age and props for helping out your mom (yeah I'm visiting from her blog).

    1. Thank you very much Miss Sheena. My mom embarrasses me sometimes by talking about me! But my Dad, is even worse in the embarrassing department. He tells strangers in the food store all about me!

      My sisters always ask me to cook for them, which I love to do. I love baked chicken. Sounds like your sister has a great recipe there.
