Jo-Jo Potatoes

This is my all-time most favorite ways to have potatoes.  No fooling.  I absolutely love, love, love these. These delicious potatoes have many monikers:  jo-jos, oven fries, baked rounds etc etc.  Personally, I call them delicious :)  They are my favorite way to eat potatoes and despite a few steps for prep, they are pretty easy to make.  They are tender yet a little crispy and flavorful, but not overpowering.  Serve these instead of your standard french fries or tator tots.  Your loved ones will eat them right up and beg for more!

Jo-Jo Potatoes
Serves 2-3
Prep + Bake Time = 1 Hour

1 lb Potatoes
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 TB Seasoned Salt
Oil of Choice (olive, canola or vegetable)

Step 1:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet by greasing it with cooking oil or spray.

Step 2:  Gather your potatoes, about 3 or 4 and wash them - roughly a pound.  Be sure to remove any of those ugly eyes!

Step 3:  Then, slice them into 1/4-inch rounds.  Mmmmmmmmmm starchy.

Step 4:  Grab and empty bread bag or paper bag.  Pour the flour, seasoned salt and Parmesan cheese into the bag.  Close the top and give it a good couple shakes to combine.  You can change up the seasoning to what you like . . .if you love garlic, add garlic!  Love paprika?  Add paprika!

Step 5:  You will now begin to coat the potatoes!  Place a 3 or 4 slices of potato into the bag and then give it a few shakes.

Retrieve with tongs and place on a greased baking sheet.

Repeat until all the potatoes are coated and laying in a single layer on the baking sheet.  Discard any leftover flour mixture.

Step 6:  Drizzle some cooking oil over the potatoes.  They don't need to be coated, but just a drizzle is good.

Step 7:  Place in oven to bake.  After 25 minutes, pull them out and flip the slices.  Aren't they looking yummy??  I really love, love, love those ones that turn a little more brown than the others.  Like that one in the upper left corner.  Yeah . . .you see the one.  That one. MINE!!!

Step 8:  Return to the baking sheet to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until tender. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
