Seasoned Oven Fries

Here we go, a healthy and simple alternative to french fries.  And not to mention that these are so much better!  I never want to have fries made or seasoned any other way now.  These fries are packed with flavor and spice, but are not too spicy or hot at all.  They have a super crispy crunchy exterior and because of being the Yukon Gold variety, they are soft, creamy and buttery on the inside.  What a compliment these amazing fries are to any burger.

4 Yukon Gold Potatoes (julienne sliced)
sea salt/ fresh cracked pepper
1 tsp. of garlic powder
1 tsp. of paprika
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
2 T. of real unsalted butter (melted)

-Preheat oven to 375*.  Place your french cut potatoes into a medium mixing bowl.  Add in the salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and parmesan cheese;  toss well to thoroughly coat them.  Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and again toss well.  Cover a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and then coat with cooking spray (or else they will stick).  Evenly arrange potatoes on pan with space between them (or else you will have soggy sides).  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until just starting to crisp and turn a dark golden color.  Serve with Ranch dressing or ketchup.  Serves 4.  Enjoy!
