We often take the ultra-low-fat potato and fry it into nutritional oblivion. But it doesn't have to be that way. Here is a makeover of a high-fat spud favorite, great as an appetizer or side dish.

ingredients

  • 5 large russet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese

directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Scrub the potatoes. With a paring knife, remove the skin and about 1/8 inch of the flesh in long 1- to 2-inch-wide strips. (Reserve the peeled potatoes for another use). Toss the potato skins with oil, paprika, salt and cayenne. Place in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet; sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake until tender and golden, 25-30 minutes.
