  • 1 large russet potato (about 1 lb.) $0.37
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil $0.12
  • 1 tsp dried oregano $0.10
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder $0.03
  • 1/4 tsp salt $0.02
  • Freshly cracked pepper $0.05
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan $0.08
  • Handful fresh parsley (optional) $0.10


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Wash the potato well, then cut into 1/2-inch thick strips and wedges. Spread the potatoes out over the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over top.
  • Combine the oregano, garlic powder, salt, and freshly cracked pepper in a bowl, then sprinkle over the potatoes. Toss the potatoes on the baking sheet until they are coated in oil and spices. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan over top.
  • Bake the potatoes in the fully preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and slightly crisp on the edges. Rotate the pieces half way through the baking time. Top with chopped fresh parsley, then serve immediately.
