Italian Fries

Ingredients:

  • 6 or 7 idaho potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/3-inch-thick french fry-style strips, soaked in cold water
  • 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried herbs or some combo of dried oregano, thyme, marjoram, and basil
  • 2 cups freshly grated romano cheese
  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) salted butter, cut into 6 cubes
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. 2. Drain the potatoes and pat dry with paper towels. Spread 1 tablespoon of the olive oil on each of 2 rimmed baking sheets and spread out the potatoes. Overlapping is fine.
  3. 3. Sprinkle the dried herbs evenly over the potatoes. Liberally spread the cheese and parsley on top. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the cheese. Scatter the cubed butter around the pans. Watch: How to Cook with Martha: How to Juice Citrus
  4. 4. Bake until the potatoes are golden brown, rotating the pans after 30 minutes, for 45 to 50 minutes total. Use a spatula to lift off the potatoes with all the crusty cheese adhered to them. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
