Oven roasted potatoes with italian herbs

Submitted by: JENNYFAYE01

Introduction

This is a low-fat alternative to french fries This is a low-fat alternative to french fries
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    3 cups diced red skin or yukon gold potatoes
    1 tbsp dried basil
    1 tbsp dried oregano
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp paprika
    salt, to taste
    pepper, to taste
    Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Directions

Heat oven to 400* F. Wash and cube raw potatoes. I prefer either red skin or yukon gold and leave the skin on for additional fiber. Place potatoes in a single layer in a 9x13 cake pan (I use the kind that has a plastic lid to cover.) Spray potatoes with olive oil cooking spray for about 3 seconds. Sprinkle potatoes with dried basil and oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and paprika. Place plastic lid over baking pan and shake vigorously to evenly distribute herbs and spices (holding the lid in place, just in case!) Remove the lid and place in hot oven until slightly browned.

I serve these alone or with ketchup and both kids and adults love them. They take away the fat and fuss of french fries and are a tasty alternative that will "trick" those who think anything healthy is bland. The cooking spray helps the browning process, adds a little "crunch" and holds the herbs and spices to the potatoes.

  • I loved this recipe! It was easy to make and I am a "No Fuss" cook. I used small potatoes and made wedges instead of cubing them and they cooked within the 30 minutes that was stated in the recipe. I also added some onions while roasting for flavor. - 6/24/13

  • I have been making something similar to this for a while, but I cut into the shape of french fries. It's to the point where I can't even eat fast food fries at all, as I think they are too greasy. - 6/23/12

  • These were very tasty, but a little dry. I wasn't able to use the olive oil spray, since I only had regular PAM. I think that may have affected how they came out. Overall, I would make them again with withe the olive oil spray. - 6/1/11
