For some time now I have proudly used the phrase “I can’t cook”. It was better than saying “hey look I prefer eating out and processed food because it’s easy”. However it was much more expensive and much less healthy.
Here’s a side that goes well with Cheesy Turkey & Bacon Sliders or any other quick healthy finger food type meal you’d like. The kiddos with also enjoy it!
What you will need:
3-4 Russet Potatoes
Large Square Pan
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Prep Time: 10-15 mins
1. Rinse the outside the potatoes. Be sure to clean them good because they will not be peeled. Using the crinkle cut side of the veggies cutter cut your potato. After your 1st cut rotate the potato opposite of the cuts you already have. Continue this process as you cut each potato. The rotation is how you will get the waffle fry look. (totally hoped I didn’t just confuse you). Continue until all of your potatoes are cut.
2. If you have a non stick pan put potatoes in the pan. If not have cover the pan in a foil wrap of you choosing. I would recommend spraying your foil with a non stick spray.
3. Brush your potatoes with olive oil. Do not over oil this will cause the potatoes to be flimsy (it’s happened to me). Sprinkle salt to taste onto the potatoes. Lastly, sprinkle fresh or dried parsley and/or oregano onto your potatoes as well.
Cooking Time: 20-30 mins (depends on the thickness of cut) Put potatoes in oven. Allow to cook for about 15 minutes. Check tenderness. If the potatoes are to your liking turn your oven on low broil. Allow to broil on one side for 5-7 mins or until potatoes are a golden brown color. Flip and repeat. Keep your eyes on them as broil works fast.
Stay tuned for an easy homemade chicken broth!
