Aunt Melissa's Rosemary Oven Fried Potatoes
Tuesday, December 16, 2014
Potatoes (Russet or any baking variety)
Fresh or Dried Rosemary
Tex-Joy Steak Seasoning
Parsley (fresh or dried)
Scrub desired number of potatoes for baking, removing soil. Prick each potato multiple times with a fork and place directly on racks in the oven. Bake for approximately 1 hour in 350 - 375 degree oven, or until fork inserted to thickest part of potato does not meet resistance and interior of potato feels soft and done.
Allow potatoes to cool. (If desired, refrigerate overnight). Once easy to handle, cut potatoes into approximately one inch cubes. Transfer to large bowl and splash with olive oil. Toss to coat evenly.
Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Arrange cut potatoes in a single layer on shallow baking dish (a jelly roll or broiler pan work well).
Sprinkle lightly and evenly with fresh or dried rosemary.
Next, sprinkle evenly with Tex-Joy Steak seasoning, insuring that all potatoes are lightly seasoned.
Dice a large onion and sprinkle evenly over potatoes. Add fresh or dried parsley, if desired.
Bake @ 400 for 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes are lightly browned and slightly crisp. Serve immediately.
Note: Measurements are inexact because this recipe is very easy to make in any quantity. Whenever I bake potatoes, I simply make extra and store in the refrigerator to make Rosemary oven fries for weekend brunch or an easy side dish.
Tex-Joy steak seasoning can be purchased online from the Texas Coffee Company, Amazon or Walmart online. It is my go-to seasoning for everyday dishes and tastes great on steaks, burgers, ground turkey, chicken and potatoes. This recipe may work with another type of seasoned salt; however, Tex-Joy Steak seasoning is inexpensive and easy to order online. http://www.texjoy.com/store/c/13-Steak-Seasonings.aspx?sort=PriceAsc I've tried many other Tex-Joy seasoning offerings and have been happy with all; however, I don't care for the coffee, so my recommendation extends to all of the seasonings and ends at Seaport coffee. (Sorry Texas Coffee Company, I love everything else).
