Cheesy Potato Sticks.

The English word potato comes from Spanish patata (the name used in Spain). The Spanish Royal Academy says the Spanish word is a compound of the Taino batata (sweet potato) and the Quechua papa (potato).. Hmm sounds familiar..Batata in Hindi..


·      5 large potatoes
·      2 cups thick Cream
·      Salt and Pepper
·      2 tsp. Parsley finely chopped
·      2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated

How I make it:

1.     Cut your potatoes into thin French fry type strips, and place the fries evenly in a baking dish.
2.     Pour the cream over the top of the fries.
3.     Salt and pepper them generously.
4.     Sprinkle the 2 cups grated Cheddar Cheese over the top.
5.     Sprinkle Parsley flakes on top of the cheese. 
6.     Cover the baking dish with foil, and poke a fork through the top of the foil, 2 or 3 times to allow a little steam to escape. This way, your cream doesn’t boil over into your oven!
7.     Bake in a preheated oven at 200 deg C for about 1 hour, or until potatoes are tender.
