Crispy Cheddar Baked Fries

With Summer coming, I will be eating a lot more grilled burgers and grilled chicken and I'm always looking for delicious side dishes.

Baked fries are always a crowd favorite and these turned out so yummy.

The outside has a nice crunch and the inside is so soft and tender.

Serve with Ranch dressing.

Potatoes, Cheese and Ranch.  Does it get much better?

(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)

6 medium red potatoes, scrubbed,
   leave skin on and cut off the bad parts
2-3 Tbl. olive oil
1/2 c. Panko bread crumbs
3/4 c. grated Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbl. Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut potatoes into wedges and put in a large bowl.  Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the potatoes and toss to coat.  All of the potatoes should be evenly coated, if not, add a little more oil.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir together until all the wedges are coated.  Pour onto a greased baking sheet.  I find a dark baking sheet works best to get a crispy fry.  A lot of the coating might fall off when poured onto the baking sheet.  Scoop it up and press it onto the wedges.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and potatoes are tender.  Cool for a few minutes before serving.  Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.  Makes 3-4 servings.

    1. I've never used golden potatoes, but I am sure they would work just fine.
