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!

4 carrots, scraped and thinly sliced

1 onion, peeled and chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon turmeric

4 tablespoons butter (Optional)

1/2 head cabbage, chopped or shredded

4 to 5 potatoes, peeled and cubed

Cook bacon, remove from skillet,  drain and set aside.   Saute onions and carrots until tender in bacon drippings or olive oil.  Stir in butter,  cabbage, salt, pepper, cumin, and turmeric.  Cook uncovered about 20 minutes on medium heat stirring a couple times. Add potatoes, cover and simmer until potatoes are cooked or about another 20 minutes.  Crumble bacon slices on top before serving.  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy.

BEST EVER HAM SLIDERS OR SANDWICHES

Ham Sliders - TSLCThis recipe or one similar is all over Pinterest and I make it often so wanted to post it on here for those of you who have not seen it.  These little sliders are wonderful and can be made in so many different ways.  I served them over the holidays as appetizers for guests and family.  They are great when having friends over for game day or just anytime you want a great sandwich.  You can double or triple the recipe and make a lot at one time of cut it in half.  They reheat great in the microwave, too. You can even make breakfast ones by adding an egg and using ham, sausage or bacon and they are great with coffee.

12 rolls (I use whatever is available or you can use the sweet Hawaiian rolls)

12 pieces of cooked ham (You can make these with cooked turkey or chicken and you can add bacon, too. We love the Kentucky Legend ham on these if you can find it in your area)

12 pieces of cheese (I use half a slice of cheese on each sandwich, can use more and use any kind of cheese you like. We like Swiss)

Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip (Enough to spread on both sides of rolls)

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

1 tablespoon yellow mustard (Could use honey mustard or spicy mustard)

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup

1 teaspoon onion flakes

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

About 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Make your sandwiches by splitting the rolls, spreading with mayo, adding a piece of cheese and ham. Place in a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave, add poppy seeds, mustard, onion flakes and Worcestershire sauce.  Whisk together with wire whisk.  Brush the tops of the rolls using all the mixture.  Sprinkle the brown sugar over the tops after brushing with butter.  Cover with foil and let sit for one hour in the fridge or overnight if you want to make them ahead of time.  You can also cook immediately.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake uncovered for about 5 minutes.  Makes 12 sandwiches.

These are great with my recipe for Quickest Ever Yeast Rolls, too.
