Grilled Potatoes (Oven Baked) Fou


What can truly compare in flavor and texture and overall sinfulness than crusty, crunchy potatoes? Oven baked potatoes can be as tasty as French fries or even better with this no-fail recipe.

My kids love French Fries (chips for the Brits! And frites for the French!). Well, what kid doesn’t, right? So we healthy parents have to try and come up with something similar if we’re going to keep the crowd happy and our waistlines reasonably slim.

Here’s what I do when I get a ‘Crunchy Tater’ craving, I toss my potatoes with some olive oil, fresh herbs, bread crumbs, flavoured sea salt and some parmesan cheese. Bake in hot oven; toss several times. And voilà, Crunchy potatoes without using the deep fryer.

A couple of ways to serve these babies: on their own; with hamburgers or any meat you are preparing and over salad greens. Use a creamy or mayonnaise based dressing for the ultimate salad meal. If you do top your salad with these babies you’ll never think salads are just for wimps again!

Actually, the secret here is the bread crumbs! that is what gives them the extra crunchiness.

Now, I've written up that recipe for the brie and dried tomato quiche I shared with you...
