Potatoes can be a mom’s best friend in the kitchen. They’re inexpensive, stay fresh longer than most produce, are incredibly versatile and kids tend to love them, especially when they are mashed or in every little one’s favorite potato format_ french fries. Granted, french fries come straight out of the deep fryer and as delicious as they are, are not the healthiest of choices. That’s why I love Steak Fries.

Making Steak Fries couldn’t be easier and for kids, they’re a perfect french fry substitute. Just cut your potatoes into thick wedges, give them a light coat of seasoning and pop them in the oven. In no time they become tender and light on the inside and crispy on the outside. The best part is that whether you’re serving a one year old or an 80 year old, this is a recipe everyone can enjoy. See? Your new best friend!

    1. I don’t use Old Bay seasoning. I’m not sure we have it in Texas but I DO use Tony Chacheres Cajun seasoning. Just as yummy!
