I have never, ever, ever liked steak fries. At the Cracker Barrel, they definitly weren’t one of the sides I would choose. (Who would when you can get those awesome fried apples??)
But my thoughts changed completely, when I saw these at the grocery store. (FOR A DOLLAR, mind you.)
Fingerling potatoes. I didn’t really know what else to do with them, besides make steak fries. The seasonings are easy enough as well, I just used the only seasonings I ever use.
1 1/2 lb. Fingerling potatoes
1/2 t salt
3/4 t garlic powder
1/8 t pepper
1/2 t chili powder
2 T olive oil (I used 3, but they were pretty greasy. Next time, I’m definitly taking it down to 2.)
Cut the fingerling potatoes into quarters, and place them on a parchment lined pan.
Pour the oil on, and using your hands, toss the potatoes so they’re all evenly covered.
Then, add your spices, and toss them with your hands again.
Bake them at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
I wish this photo was better. I mean, I do have a light box, but when it comes down to recipes I make for dinner, everyone is too hungry to wait!
And these are so easy, even this little guy helped me with them!
Sorry for the lame tiny cell phone photo. (What’s up with that, cell phone? why do you take such small pictures?) He might look big, but he’s only 4! I keep telling him that girls love a guy who can cook. His mom does, that’s for sure, because when he ran and told her he had made the steak fries for dinner, she was ecstatic!
Have you ever had steak fries? What’s your favorite way to eat a potato?
