I jazz up my fries with paprika and garlic powder. Something about the combination of spices packs a heck of a punch. Everyone loves them—we even enjoy the leftovers cold! —Heather Byers, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Just because you're watching your waistline doesn't mean you can't indulge in some french fries. In this recipe, nutritious sweet potatoes are sprinkled with zesty seasonings and bake in the oven for a low-fat treat!
These spuds are sure to root up fun at your "spooky" affair (and during daily meals!). Judy, one of Crafting Traditions' kitchen experts, came up with the wedges to flavor a family Halloween gathering. When they won rave reviews, she decide to share them here so you can try them, too.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"These tempting potatoes are one finger food I can make a meal of," informs Marilyn Dutkus of Laguna Beach, California. "Quick to fix, they're a hit at parties and as a snack. Ranch dressing is a tasty alternative to sour cream."
A Parmesan cheese and basil coating provides these "homegrown" fries with their pleasant taste. "Seasoned with garlic powder and baked in the oven, they're a zippy alternative to deep-fat fried potatoes," notes Tammy Neubauer of Ida Grove, Iowa.
For a speedy, health-conscious side dish or snack, Patricia Fredericks of Oak Creek, Wisconsin offers these fun wedges. “They're just as tasty as the deep-fried version, but with less mess,” says Patricia.
