Prep: 10 min./Cook: 35 min.
Pictured: Oven-Roasted Fries with Cuban Seasoning.5 large Yukon Gold potatoes, well scrubbed
1/4 cup canola oil
1 Tbs. kosher salt
3 Tbs. seasoning mix (pages 117-119), optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to heat for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, slice each potato lengthwise into 8 slices. Put the potato slices in a large bowl, add oil, salt, and seasoning mix, if using, and toss to coat the potatoes evenly.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and add the potatoes in an even layer. Bake the potatoes, turning occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.
1 tsp. ground bay leaves
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. granulated garlic
1 tsp. granulate onion
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
Whisk together bay leaves, cumin, garlic, onion, oregano, and turmeric in a small bowl until combined.
- I used 10 small Yukon Gold potatoes
- My fries were delicious and cooked through, but perhaps next time I'll cook them a little longer to get them a little more like fries instead of roasted potatoes.
- A small coffee grinder is perfect for grinding dried bay leaves (as well as other spices). I used a little less than 1 tsp. garlic powder because I didn't have granulated garlic, and I again used the coffee grinder to turn my dried minced onion into granulated onion.
