I think I love it so much because it's EASY. It doesn't require me to stand over the stove and monitor a pot (or three pots).
My family also likes the TASTE of roasting. It's sometimes difficult to get children to eat their veggies, but I find that Little Guy eats most veggies I give him that are roasted. Example #1: My roasted sausage, potatoes and brussels sprouts recipe. Who knew a kid would love brussels sprouts!?
I would say I roast at least twice a week, and make some kind of french fries at least once a week. Here's an easy recipe for my current favorite french fry recipe:
Rosemary Thyme Oven Baked Fries
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
- Cut potatoes into french fry sized pieces
- Spray roasting pan with olive oil and scatter fries on it
- Sprinkle sea salt, rosemary and thyme over the fries - to your liking/taste
- Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, turning at least once
There are so many yummy french fry options...what's your favorite kind of seasoning for french fries?
