Time, Serving and Secrets

Don't let the simplicity of this delicious recipe fool you. While it only takes approximately 45 minutes to prepare and bake on your silicone mat (10 minutes prep, 35 minutes baking), the flavor and texture is similar to a gourmet meal! The secret is to toss the spices with some oil along with the potatoes in a bowl prior to adding them to your silicon mat, as opposed to sprinkling them with the herbs afterwards. In a matter of no time, you'll have 2 servings that are the perfect side to any meal, or a little something-something to snack on during this season's Football Sundays.

Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the potatoes and bake for another 20 minutes or until crispy and brown to your liking.

Advantages to Using a Silicon Baking Mat

You can certainly proceed with this recipe without using silicone cookware but it is highly recommended in order to achieve the crispiness that you desire with every bite as this is one of the best benefits that come from silicon baking mats. As mentioned, by using silicon baking mats as opposed to spraying baking sheets, you decrease the risk of burning or browning the wedges - or anything else that you're cooking up. They also replace the need for parchment paper and aluminum foil, making silicon cookware a money-saving option within the kitchen. That's also not to mention that you don't ever have to grease the silicon mats because they are already designed for no sticking. So needless to say, this all makes your kitchen frugal, eco-friendly and so much easier to clean up.

This recipe is perfect for the fall season that is well upon us, and can be the perfect snack food for those Football Sundays, but they are also just as incredible when served as a side.
