Parmesan Potato Slices

First of all, I would like to apologize for not posting yesterday. My allergies are acting up and I felt like a Mack truck had hit me, I was discombobulated all day.

My son has been getting into cooking and does quite well. I think maybe he should go to chef school. Anyway, last night he made chicken cordon bleu, peas and these potatoes. Everything was very nice (if heavily calorie-ridden). I could have eaten the whole pan of potatoes!

In fact, they were so good that I snitched the recipe from him and I am sharing it with you today. I promise that my next post will NOT be potato-oriented!

Parmesan Potato Slices
Serves 6 or 4, depending on how much you like potatoes

5 large potatoes
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup mozarella cheese, grated
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup butter (1 stick or 1/4 lb) melted

Peel potatoes and slice 1/4 inch thick. In a medium bowl combine cheeses, flour, salt, pepper and paprika. Place mixture in plastic bag. Add potatoes to bag and shake to coat. Place potatoes in 9 x 13 baking pan. Pour melted butter evenly over potatoes. (Go ahead and add the extra seasoning mix on top of the potatoes). Bake covered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and gently stir. Bake uncovered another 30 minutes.

Voila - crispy seasoned potatoes.


The only thing I would do differently is add at least one clove of garlic, minced.

Until tomorrow!

They sound really tasty, Raquel. Your son is obviously following in mom's footsteps.

And don't worry about another tater recipe, this is the international year of the potato after all. Up with spuds.
