PARMESAN BAKED POTATO WEDGES

My family loves potatoes and they will eat them anyway you “fix” them.  This Parmesan Potato Wedges recipe is a favorite of ours with onion dip and so easy to make.  We like them as a side dish for a meal, too.

Parmesan Baked Potato Wedges

 

4 to 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges (I make 8 wedges per potato)

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes

1/2 teaspoon oregano

Pinch cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 stick butter, melted or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup

Cooking spray

In a bowl whisk together the flour, parsley flakes, oregano, cayenne pepper, paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.  Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Dip the potato wedges in the butter and roll in the flour mixture or put flour mixture in a paper bag, add potato wedges and shake to cover. Arrange on sprayed baking sheet.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes on each side turning once. (I spray the potatoes with a little cooking spray when I turn them).  Makes 4 to 6 servings.  Enjoy!

JANUARY IS NATIONAL OATMEAL MONTH!

oatmeal for breakfastThere are more oats consumed in January than any other month.  Oats provide fiber to your diet, help to improve LDL cholesterol, and are a great nutritious food.   Oats can be added to meatloaf to help it hold its shape.  Oatmeal cookies make a great snack and as a breakfast cereal oatmeal makes for a healthy morning meal.

I like to add fruit and cinnamon to my oatmeal along with fat-free milk and nuts.  I add about a teaspoon of honey for a sweetener.    Scientists are finding that cinnamon helps to lower sugar in diabetics and by adding  it to your oatmeal you are fighting cholesterol and diabetes!

Here is my recipe for my morning bowl of oatmeal.

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup blueberries (can use any fruit you like)
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup skim milk
nuts (optional) (I use walnuts because they are supposed to be good for cholesterol, too.)
 
Put oats and water in bowl and microwave for one minute.  Add remaining ingredients and stir.   Enjoy!
 
 You won’t get hungry before lunch with a good, healthy breakfast and oatmeal is one of the best choices available.  Entice your children to eat oatmeal by adding fruit and nuts to the bowl for a tastier breakfast treat. Oatmeal makes you feel fuller and stifles the cravings you might have for other less healthy foods.
 
I use oats in recipes to add nutrition and as a thickener because they are so good for you. 
 
 Check out 14 of my recipes I have listed using quick-cooking oats. Hope you will find something to make for National Oatmeal Month for your family.
