Crispy Oven Fries

Potatoes dredged in a seasoned buttermilk, rolled in cornflake or panko crumbs, and baked.

Crispy Oven Fries

Generic corn flakes are a great way to get a nice crunch when you want to oven fry, but that doesn't have to be limited to chicken. Give it a swing sometime with potatoes and add a whole other layer of texture. Try it with panko bread crumbs, or check out the variation at the bottom, using a mayonnaise coating and cornbread dressing mix.

Here's how to make them.

Recipe: Crispy Oven Fries

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 45 min |
Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
  • 3 large baking potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups of buttermilk
  • Pinch of kosher salt, onion salt and garlic powder
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Couple dashes of hot sauce
  • 2 cups of plain cornflakes or panko crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama)
  • Melted butter to drizzle, optional
Instructions

Preheat to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking pan with olive oil. Cut each potato into about 8 wedges and put into a bowl. Mix the buttermilk, salt, onion salt, garlic powder, black pepper and hot sauce; pour over the top and set aside.

Pulse the cornflakes in the food processor until crushed. Add the Cajun seasoning and pulse to mix and pour into a shallow pan. Can also substitute panko bread crumbs for the cornflakes.

Roll the potato wedges in the cornflake mixture and press the crumbs in. Arrange in a single layer in the prepared baking pan.

Bake at 375 degrees F, about 45 minutes or until tender, turning once halfway through, and drizzling with a bit more olive oil. Remove, drizzle with melted butter, if desired, and sprinkle with additional kosher salt if desired.

Variation: Instead of buttermilk, dip the cut up potato wedges in a mixture of 1/2 cup of mayonnaise with the same seasonings. Add 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese to the cornflakes or panko, or may also substitute 2 cups of packaged seasoned cornbread dressing (like Pepperidge Farm) in place of cornflakes or panko, along with the Cajun seasoning, and roll the coated potatoes in the mixture. Bake as above.

  3. I've done oven fries, but never used cornflakes-think I'd like panko better (and I have some already!). Buttermilk works miracles with chicken so why not potatoes?
