Oh my.  A must-have as a go-to!

Crunchy, slightly cheesy, salty and utterly amazing…

Let the savory adventure begin!

Peel 7 medium white potatoes and chop into chunks.

Place in a large bowl of water while you assemble the seasoning bag.

Roll down the sides of a plastic, ziploc bag and add 1/4 cup all-purpose flour to it.

Then add 1/2 teaspoon salt,

1/2 teaspoon Lowry’s or Season-All seasoned salt,

a pinch of freshly ground black pepper and a heaping 1/4 cup of freshly shredded Parmesan cheese.

Drain potatoes and place them all in the seasoning bag.   Don’t try the next step without first “zipping” up!  Ok, now you can shake the potatoes and try, try, try to evenly distribute the seasonings.  You want each little cube of potato to impart that salty, cheesy splendor…

Put a little vegetable oil, 1-2 tablespoons, in the bottom of a cookie sheet/sheet pan.  And then (Oh yes I did!) you dot the potatoes with butter.  Plenty of butter dotting going on here.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour, turning once during baking.  Turn heat up to 425 degrees and cook them for about 10 more minutes, scraping the bottom of the sheet pan with your spatula, to get that beautiful crisp to each side of them.

Add salt….and enjoy!
