These oven-roasted potatoes are a fantastic alternative to deep-fried french fries. The sauce is also great on burgers. —Dana Alexander, Lebanon, Missouri


  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon chili powder, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 cup hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce


  1. Cut potatoes into 1/4-in. strips; soak in cold water 30 minutes. Drain; pat potatoes dry with paper towels.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Toss potatoes with oil, 2 tablespoons chili powder, parsley, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, onion powder, salt and pepper. Arrange potatoes in a single layer in a greased 15x10-in. pan. Bake 45 minutes.
