Lundi: Recipes

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like potatoes cooked one way or another and today’s recipe is in line with last week’s.  This time, though, we’re going for a warm potato dish that will make you forget French fries (or as they are known in France, pommes frites).

This preparation is a form of oven fry which, as we all know, turns the spud into something a bit healthier.  Fried foods are delicious, of course, but they are not as good for you as baked items.  Fortunately, with this preparation, you won’t miss the fryer one little bit.

10 cloves of garlic (5 whole and 5 mashed)
¾ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Dried rosemary or Herbes de Provence to taste
6 Yukon Gold or small red potatoes, peeled

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and hers in a bowl.  Cut peeled potatoes in half and then cut each half into about four wedges.  Put the potatoes in the olive oil mixture and toss to coat.

Arrange potato wedges on a sheet pan lined with foil.  Make sure that they are separate from one another with no overlap.  Cook in the oven until brown, about 30 to 35 minutes.

Really, it’s that easy and the taste is out of this world.  This recipe makes a great meal if you sprinkle your potatoes with grated sharp cheddar cheese about five minutes before they’re done.  Bon appetite ~

You probably don't remember but this is the recipe B made for her "French dinner" last year.
