I’m always looking for healthy, kid-friendly recipes. But seems that one of my new year’s resolutions every year is to find more varied recipes for our family, especially for more kid friendly foods. Since I just got a good deal on some organic potatoes, I wanted to make something (besides the same ol’ baked French fries) with the potatoes. I found a recipe that was close enough to ensure that they’d like them but different enough to be, well, different. It’s a flavorful version of fries that is sure to please palates of all ages at your dinner table.
I had to adapt a recipe I found because of the ingredients I happen to have on hand. So, here’s what I did:
4 medium potatoes (I used Yukon Gold, but any potato will work)
1-2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
¾ tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper
2-3 tbsp avocado oil (use the oil of your choice)
1. Pre-heat oven to 400° F
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. Prepare your potatoes. I didn’t peel ours. But some children prefer them peeled.
4. Cut potatoes into 1 inch cubes
5. Mix your seasoning in a small bowl.
6. Toss cubed potatoes with the seasoning.
7. Spread in single layer on baking sheet.
8. Roast in oven for 35 – 40 minutes or until potatoes are crispy on outside but soft inside.
My husband and I had to work very hard not to eat them all as soon as they were out of the oven. My children ate them with ketchup but I guarantee you won’t. They are a delicious version of fries. Close enough to be familiar but different enough to feel like a treat.
What variation of kids favorites foods do you make?
