Oven Baked Parmesean Fries

Hey all - this post has been scheduled for a week (yay!) and I totally forgot it was going up this morning. But for a quick update on the blogger fiasco of yesterday, its all better :) Now onto regularly scheduled life without freaking out!

Recently, I pinned these awesome looking fries on Pinterest, but I hadn't had a chance to make them yet. Then, I was sitting around on Pinterest and AJ wanted to know exactly what Pinterest was, so I showed him my food board - he saw those fries and he made sure that we bought potatoes to make them ASAP!

Now, I just assumed that I had all of the spices in my cabinet, but of course, I didn't.

So what did I do? I improvised!

My version:
3 potatoes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp old bay seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder *I didn't have this, but I really think this would have punched it up!
1/8 tsp dried thyme
2 Tbsp grated parmesean
1 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 425.
Cut the potatoes into 8ths (but leave the skins on) and put them in a large ziploc bag.
Mix the dried spices and cheese together and put them in the ziploc bag.
Put the olive oil in the bag.
Shake shake shake.
Spread the potatoes out in one layer on a baking sheet (foil lined is good for clean up, but I totally forgot to do it!)
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the potatoes are golden brown. I did mine for 30, they were very brown and crunchy on the side on the baking sheet, but golden brown not as crunchy on the other side. I love them like that, but you may want to shake them up/flip them over halfway through the baking process!

Now, I forgot to take pictures of them, because I ate them up too quickly, so I will just share the picture from the original pin! (If you click on it, you will go directly to the pin, or you can click here and go directly to their blog!)

The Rules: 

1. Decide which pin you'd like to recreate.

2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin's url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers' posts!
