3 cups diced red skin or Yukon gold potatoes
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Heat oven to 400* F. Wash and cube raw potatoes. I prefer either red skin or yukon gold and leave the skin on for additional fiber. Place potatoes in a single layer in a 9x13 cake pan (I use the kind that has a plastic lid to cover.) Spray potatoes with olive oil cooking spray for about 3 seconds. Sprinkle potatoes with dried basil and oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and paprika. Place plastic lid over baking pan and shake vigorously to evenly distribute herbs and spices (holding the lid in place, just in case!) Remove the lid and place in hot oven until slightly browned.
I serve these alone or with ketchup and both kids and adults love them. They take away the fat and fuss of french fries and are a tasty alternative that will "trick" those who think anything healthy is bland. The cooking spray helps the browning process, adds a little "crunch" and holds the herbs and spices to the potatoes.
