Side Dish Recipe: Hand-Cut Baked Parmesan French Fries


When it comes to baking and cooking, I always love playing around with ingredients. Even though baking requires you to stick to the measurements of flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, salt, etc., it's still possible to mix up the additional ingredients like chocolate pieces, candies, and coloring.

Cooking is a different story. While cooking, the possibilities are endless when it comes to ingredients and flavors. By adding a dash of this and a pinch of that, you can turn one dish into a completely different meal. Cooking allows you the flexibility to experiment with flavors and create a meal that is guaranteed to make your whole family happy.

So, what do you get when you combine the methods of baking and cooking? Well, for starters, you get these Hand-Cut Baked Parmesan French Fries. Normally fried, these french fries are a healthy alternative and the perfect complement to your main entree.
