The book “The Duggars: Twenty and Counting” contains this recipe. It has become one of my simple go to side dishes. It is cheap and easy – the potatos cook quickly in the oven and are a complete hit with the children and my husband! So if you are hard pressed for what to go with your chicken or beef – add this to the plate and your family will cheerfully eat them and be stuffed (which for me is the goal – or else one hour later I hear those famous words “I’mmmmmmmm hungry!!!)
- One potato per person you are serving, sliced lengthwise
- Olive Oil (Oops – I’m guilty I used vegetable oil as seen in the photo!)
- Garlic powder, salt and pepper (or chili pepper if desired)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Rub the potato with 2 tablespoons of olive oil (or put the oil in a plastic bag and toss with the potato slices). Sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice. Spread the slices on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown and fork tender and voila – golden steak fries! ENJOY!!!!
Maybe it seems late in life for me to have discovered such a simple side dish – but I’m thankful I gave it a try – it’s jazzed up many meals this summer!
Walk with the King!
