if you are on a diet... run away now!

(I realize the extreme irony of posting this recipe right after blathering on about being more healthy... but I've been waiting to post it and quite frankly, I just don't care!)

Parmesan French Fries
The world's most delectable french-fry recipe

1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp salt (more or less, to taste)
1 tbsp olive oil
4-6 medium sized potatoes
1/4-1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Using a handy-dandy french fry cutter (or a kitchen knife if you don't have one, but I warn you, you will want one after this), slice the freshly peeled potatoes into thin strips.

Combine fries with olive oil, mustard, and salt in a large bowl and mix until fries are fully coated. Spread the fries evenly on a baking pan (if they clump together too much, they don't bake as well!). Place in the oven and bake for approximately 20-30 minutes. The fries should look golden and crispy. Add the Parmesan at the last possible minute, and bake for 5 more minutes, or until the cheese is lightly toasted.

Serve with dijon mustard for a fun twist!

There's a lot of things you can do with this recipe- I have not tried using frozen fries, but I'm sure that would work as well! Also, you can experiment with the spices to find what tastes best for you, or even add different ones! Enjoy!!!


  1. Perfect weekend recipe! Thanks! These fries sound delicious!

  2. Oh that sounds SO amazing!! And seriously, what is so unhealthy about these? It's not like you're frying them! And you're using olive oil! And potatoes! Now I want some, mmmmm.

  3. Oh! I think I'm drooling! Thanks for sharing! I'm totally making those!!!!

  4. @ Deidra- Enjoy! I hope they turn out well for you!

    @ Anna- actually, you are totally right. The problem is when you have too MANY. =) I just can't stop eating these, so I have to make them in limited batches!

    @ Nadine- Yay, I was hoping people would try them. If you change it up or try different spices that are good, let me know how it turns out!

  5. Yum! I agree, these are pretty healthy. I'm so glad olive oil is good in moderation, because I love it!
