What started as a food blog has morphed into more or less a personal journal. My marriage, my parenting, my life journey is as likely to appear now as my kitchen work... but there's more than one way to feed a family.

The other evening, I served fried potatoes with our meal and Brooks asked, "What are these, Parmesan Chips?" referring to a simple way of serving potatoes which our family likes, but hadn't eaten in a while. Oh yeah, I thought. We love those things, but I'd kind of forgotten about them.
So I made some the next day.
Even though these potatoes are baked and not fried, with all the butter, they're hardly health food. But I definitely have foods that I prepare from time to time which are not made for their nutrition, but for the "Yay!" I hear when I tell the family what's for dinner.
Here is the recipe:
4 medium baking potatoes in 1/4 inch slices 1/4 c. butter, melted 1 T. finely chopped onion 1/2 t. salt 1/8 t. pepper Dash paprika 2 T grated Parmesan cheese
Place potato slices on a greased baking sheet in a single layer.
Combine butter, onion, slat, pepper and paprika. Brush this mixture on tops of potato slices.
Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden. Remove from oven, sprinkle with cheese, serve immediately.
I still have several potatoes left from my garden last year, so I'm trying to think of ways to make those elderly things appealing. I'm glad I was reminded of this recipe.
