I have been so sick and tired of our usual meals lately! Allison and I have been using Allrecipes.com to help broaden our tastes a bit. We've found some real keepers and thought I'd get them on here so that I can find them again later.lol
First off, Granola!
(this is a great recipe and sugar free)
4 cups oats
1 cup nuts (I used chopped walnuts)
1 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds, hulled
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
a dash of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix together and cook at 300* for 10 minutes, stir and then cook 10 minutes more, stir and cook until brown.(about 5 minutes)
Let cool and add fruit if desired.
Next on the list is, Baked French Fries
Chop 1 large potato however you like your fries. I did steak fry shapes because I wanted them to cook faster.
Add potatoes in a baggie with...
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
You'll need to adjust seasonings for larger amounts of potatoes. I used about 1/2 cup olive oil, 6 potatoes, and lots more seasonings. Mix all the ingredients together and pour onto a baking sheet. Cook at 425* for 20 minutes, stir and cook another 20 minutes or until browned. Yum!
