Sheet Pan Home Fries - New West KnifeWorks Review and Giveaway

Sheet Pan Home Fries - No Muss No Fuss - soooo much easier, you'll never make them in a skillet again / www.delightfulrepast.com


We all need comfort food, like my Sheet Pan Home Fries, now. And I thought giving away a really good knife would be a real perkative in the midst of all this this. But first ...


The Sheet Pan Home Fries


While there's nothing difficult about making home fries, it's more trouble (and mess) than it needs to be when you're in the middle of making other things as well. Too much checking and turning, and I always end up using too much oil to keep them from sticking. 

It took me a long time, but I finally wised up and haven't looked back since. I thought, why not just throw them on a sheet pan and put them in the oven? I didn't want to get fussy about that either. I know a lot of people roast vegetables in the oven and do a lot of turning, and I didn't want to be bothered with turning.

So I lined a quarter sheet pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking problems, tossed my potato chunks with a few simple ingredients (you can season them however you like) and just a modest amount of oil, popped it in the oven and just let it go. Fabulous! All part of my streamlined cooking strategy to save time.

It also saves time on cleaning because there are no grease splatters on the stove to clean up. No skillet with stuck-on bits to soak and scrub. And, even more important for those of us who really care about making every simple dish as good as it can possibly be, the potatoes are perfectly cooked, evenly cooked.

And if what you're looking for is Roasted Potatoes for Sunday Lunch, just hit that link and make a batch of the most perfect Roasties. Are you a home fries person or a hash browns person? If the latter, you must try my Pomme Rosti.

The New West KnifeWorks Knife


I grew up with a mother who was a world-class cook with the worst --THE WORST--knives in the world, so I was determined that when I grew up I would have good knives. And I gradually acquired very good knives. But a couple of years ago I discovered the truly remarkable knives made by New West KnifeWorks (NWKW).

The NWKW knives are as beautiful as they are useful and a joy to work with. Call me shallow, but the first thing I noticed about the Ironwood 5-Inch Chopper was that it is the most gorgeous knife I've ever seen. That desert ironwood handle is beautiful. It is a richly textured, incredibly dense hardwood that with minimal care will last forever, making this an heirloom.

The handle is ergonomic, the blade is razor-sharp, and together they make a well-balanced knife that is just big enough to be my go-to "chef" knife for most of my cutting board work. For the tasks that require a bigger blade, I can pull out a chef knife; but this should take care of about 90 percent of my slicing and chopping. It cuts through tough potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower like butter. Chopping chocolate and nuts is effortless.

Go to the section below the recipe for details on this very generous giveaway. If you don’t happen to need a knife, you know someone who does; and this knife would make a great and generous gift.

Hi Jean. I have been waiting two long weeks for this post. Well of course we English think we are the best at making chips. But yours look brilliant. I am sure they are. When I read your comment, “ (you can season them however you like) .” You took me back a few years to Provence, in the South of France . Marilyn and I stopped beside a roadside vendor. We had been in France for about a month, eating some fantastic Proven├žal cooking when suddenly I had the urge for some chips. This Frenchman fried some chips in olive oil for us and I was thinking, so far so good, when to finish off, he took a bunch of fresh herbs from under his counter. He ripped some off in his bare hands and with a flourish he rubbed the fresh herbs in a shower over the chips. Blimey they tasted so good!! Probably nearly as good as yours look Jean. Hope you and Mr Delightful are staying safe and well? Tony

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Tony, thanks so much. "Waiting two long weeks for this post" -- love that! Home fries is a dish you see on breakfast menus in American restaurants. If I were making "chips" (called french fries here), that would call for deep frying, something I rarely do these days. Though I should definitely post them one day, if for no other reason than to tell my childhood french fry story. Must remember to do that! Yes, we are staying safe and well, thank you. Hope you are doing the same.

I have never tried home fries in the oven but when I do make them I make them with cooked potato.
I need a good knife I would chop some the veggies I have in the frig and make pan roasted veggies and then put them on a pizza.

Cathy, some pan-roasted vegetables sounds good right now. Think I'll do some this evening.

Oh yum. Love the look of your potatoes. Ha! My mother worked magic in her kitchen with the worst knives ever, too.

Tamago said...

I love your smart streamlined cooking method and the dish looks so yummy! It sounds like a great knife. And I agree, it's gorgeous :-)

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Ellen, thank you. I don't know how they did it!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Tamago. I get more streamlined all the time, and the right tools certainly help.

Mary L Dahl said...

Greetings, I have just placed a pan of Home Fries into the oven. They should taste good along with my lunch on this rainy day here in California. Thanks for offering the very delightful knife. everydaydelight09@gmail.com. Stay Healthy.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Mary. And may you "stay healthy" as well. Love a rainy day!

tea lady said...

The potatoes look so good and I sure could use the knife, but if I do not win the knife, am still going to make the potatoes

Angie's Recipes said...

They look crisp and yummy! I usually made mine with rosemary and garlic...gotta try recipe next time. Thanks for sharing, Jean.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, tea lady! And do let me know how they turn out for you.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Angie. I sometimes make them with rosemary, too. And maybe a little onion, but no garlic for me (allergic). This is so much easier, hands-off, than in a skillet.

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Your sheet pan potatoes look wonderful, Jean! I have fine them that way, but need to make again from your inspired post. I like the herbs that you’ve used. The knife looks fabulous! I’d make your potatoes!

Shelbee on the Edge said...

So delicious! My husband makes pans of potatoes like this but in the smoker. He adds provolone or gouda to them and smokes the whole thing and it is amazing! But it is all rainy and snowy here, so we won’t be cooking outside any time soon. I am going to give this recipe a try! Thanks for sharing and linking up with me, Jean!

FitFoodieMegha said...

The Fries looks delicious and the golden crust is wow! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Kitty, thank you. I love potatoes in any form. And these days, the easier (and less clean-up) the better.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Shelbee! That sounds good. Maybe I should get a smoker someday. In the meantime, you could throw some smoked paprika on these for some smoky flavor along with some cheese.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Megha, thank you. I think they might be quite good served with my favorite dal.

Nancy said...

Wow! Never thought to do the potatoes that way. It will be on the list to try very soon. Just finished a loaf of french bread to go with potato soup tonight. Love the knife. Like you I enjoy a well made knife. Had to laugh several years ago, when talking about cutting things up with a friend and I asked about her knives. Her reply, "Why I only have one knife." The sad part - it was true!!! I'd probably cut up an apple for my salad first thing with the knife. Nancy reddogjnj@gmail.com

Vee said...

Oh I love roasted potatoes and your method of not turning sounds great to me. I am also interested in the combination of herbs you have used. Looking forward to trying this recipe as soon as I have some potatoes. A blessed Easter to you, Jean.

Laura Lane said...

It's hard to say, but I'd probably make salad.
Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Nancy. There's virtually no cleanup with this method of cooking potatoes. I can't imagine having just one knife. And problem is, you friend's one knife was probably a bad one!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Vee, thank you. And they reheat really well, so if you're cooking for just one or two, you can have enough for more than one meal.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Laura. It makes salad-making a snap!

Thomas "Sully" Sullivan said...

One potato, two potato, three potato, four… That’s how many potatoes I’ve eaten in the last half a century. My bonafides as an Irishman are in serious question. But I’d love to win a new knife as it is tough doing kitchen meal prep with a razor blade (mn222mn@earthlink.net). First thing I’d do with such a knife is join the boy scouts, ‘cause their motto is “Be Prepared,” which has obvious implications for culinary cutlery!

Anonymous said...

I would make an apple pie or a strawberry pie, either way I could make a lovely pie..I do not have a decent knife and would love to win this, I could bake and chop away..My name is mjs from mrs.sampson1@outlook.com! Happy Passover and Happy Easter, love love your blog!!!!!!!!!

Phil in the Kitchen said...

This is my kind of cooking and this is definitely the way I'd cook "fries" at home. I've even managed to get potatoes lately by buying them from restaurant suppliers who can't sell them to the closed restaurants. I've got to admit that I don't usually even bother with baking parchment these days. I bought a super non-stick, easy clean tray and then I do my best to get someone else to do the washing up. I can't understand why people think I'm lazy.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Sully, yes, potatoes or not, you would "Be Prepared" to do just about any culinary cutting with this beauty of a knife!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks so much, MJS. This knife makes short work of 2 or 3 pounds of apples, so you'd have that pie in the oven in no time!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Phil, I'm out of potatoes again. I must find a supplier as you have. Since my washing-up helper has little patience and would simply use a harsh scrubber on my baking tray, I feel it prudent to use baking parchment!

Cheryl said...

Jean, your potatoes look wonderful . . . the perfect simple side dish for so many things! I don't like to fry these days (too messy, too "heavy") and I like to roast potatoes in the oven myself. But why-oh-why did I not think of parchment paper?! (And thus, less oil needed to prevent sticking!)

If I were to win the knife . . . I just might make some of your oven roasted potatoes! That, or some other type of roasted veggies! My email is thinkingabouthome@gmail.com. Thank you for offering this great gift to one of your readers!

Rusthawk said...

Those potatoes look delicious! I'd get a lot of use out of this beautiful knife when prepping for my andouille sausage, tasso, and chicken gumbo.

rusthawk at gmail dot com -- thankyou!

That looks like a wonder knife and one I would love to add to my collection.

Quinn said...

My, that is a pretty knife!
I roast a lot of vegetables in the oven with just a bit of oil and (maybe) seasonings- just today, a pan of with a mix of carrots, turnip, and zucchini. For a while I couldn't seem to get the "drizzle of oil" right - it was usually too much - but I recently started (wait for it) measuring out a tablespoon of oil and drizzling that instead of just pouring from the bottle. One of those simple fixes that makes a person feel rather silly for not trying it sooner!

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

Potatoes are really loved by my family so I must try your herb combination on them, Jean. I usually roast them with fresh rosemary. I hope you have a safe and happy Easter.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Cheryl, I love my parchment paper! A lot of vegetables don't really need it, but potatoes can stick like glue to a pan. Ease of clean-up gets more important to me all the time!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Rusthawk, that gumbo sounds wonderful!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Gaye, it is a really handy size to have of a quality knife.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Leslie, it is a perfect knife for soup making!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Quinn, I love that -- "wait for it." I know what you mean. Even though I had it down for this particular thing, I've had my own little revelations just about like yours! :D

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Martha. I hope that combination makes a nice change for you. Stay safe and well.

Slabs said...

Hi Jean, Firstly thank you very much for linking and sharing your post on my blog under the B.O.S.S. feature. I hope that you have many readers and participants. I am a nut case when it comes to a wonderful and good roasted potato, and I am all for the easy, no messy version you describe. I wish to all the best during this crazy period and whoever wins the prize, enjoy it.

Take care and Happy Easter to you and your family and all readers and other bloggers.

Jeanie said...

I would probably make a potato dish -- most likely sweet potato hash if I had a good knife like that. Mine is abysmally dull and I don't know where to get it sharpened around here. Last time I tried to cut through the sweet potatoes, I nearly took off a finger, too! But oh, it's so good -- sweet potatoes, onion, sausage, lots of wonderful herbs and spices. Or possibly a stuffed acorn squash. Oh, and email: jeanie@wkar.org

These potatoes look delicious, Jean. We love roasted potatoes but sometimes they are a bit of a pain. These look yum!

GrammaGrits said...

What a great knife! I think I'd do roasted veggies first. Then maybe salad fixings...

Memarge said...

Hello, it IS a lovely looking knife. Should I be blessed enough to win, I will use it to chop my carrots and parsnips for roasting. Take care. Memarge grgrands@gmail.com

Laurie Lasala-Tuttle said...

Hi Jean! That's a beautiful knife, and I'd use it to cut up the many veggies I'm always preparing. I love roasted potatoes, often tossed with fresh rosemary from my backyard. Thanks for reminding us of how easy & yummy this dish is! Have a lovely weekend, Laurie

Laurie, I used to have a rosemary bush in my backyard. It completely took over the 4x4-foot planting bed I had put it in with three other plants. And it was getting wider and taller so quickly, we had to dig it out before it devoured the whole town!

This looks soooo good! Potatoes are not one of my diet staples. So I'll have to remember potatoes for my next grocery run!

P.S. This will work for sweet potatoes too, right?

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Jean, and Happy Easter weekend! Your sheet pan fries look delicious and I bet, tasty. I will be making those! You would just shake your head if you saw the knives I use. This has been the story of my life and EVERYBODY makes fun of my knives! I have been replacing the old ones, one at a time but they can be pricey. I just spent two hours making chicken pot pie from scratch. Does anyone even do that any more? So much work, but it is so good. No turkey dinner this year, so for just my hubby and me, I decided to make this instead. Tomorrow's leftovers I will probably enjoy more because it's already made; just warm it up. I hope you and your hubby are doing well in this pandemic we're in. I've been doing more baking than usual to keep busy. Enjoy your weekend!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Sounds good, Karen!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Margie. Yes, I do sweet potatoes like this all the time.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Sandi, I love homemade chicken pot pie, but don't make it very often! I'd be happy to eat your leftover pie tomorrow!

My oven hasn't worked for over a year, so won't be making home fries sadly. Probably the first thing I'd use the knife on is vegetable/fruit chopping for canning. I may not have an oven, but I do a lot of canning. drags59 at yahoo dot com

My father was a "cook" (no formal training, so he said he was not a chef!) and restaurant owner. I remember him sharpening his knives with ease.

This knife would be a great addition to my small collection. Chopping is very therapeutic

Thanks, Carole. I love when people share their food stories with me! You are the first person who has ever told me they find chopping therapeutic--but I find kneading bread dough to be very therapeutic.

Victoria Zigler said...

I always make fries in a similar way to you. Thanks for the seasoning suggestion though... Sounds like it will taste amazing.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh Jean, I love easy oven roasting! These look delicious and potatoes are *such* comfort food. I would probably always use dull knives except for the fact that Mr. C keeps my knives sharp. Here's got a thing about that. I'd love to enter the giveaway. Thanks! judymasrud(at)gmail(dot)com. Stay well.

Tom said...

...and who doesn't love potatoes?

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Victoria. I know lots of people like highly seasoned potatoes (lots of garlic, chili powder, etc), but I like them with just a hint of herbs so you can still tell that what you are eating is potatoes!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Judy. Easy oven roasting is definitely the way to go. Of course, Mr C keeps your knives sharpened--he is such a handy guy to have around!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Tom, I actually know one person (also named Tom, coincidentally) who doesn't like potatoes. To top it off, he is of Irish descent! :D

BethB from Indiana said...

I actually can't remember the first time I used a knife. Now I use one each time I prepare a meal, and they are never sharp enough. I'm left-handed; do you suppose that's the problem? Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway: bethbackusmoe@gmail.com

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Beth, I too am left-handed. And when I was a kid, my mother always got nervous watching me use a knife, because of that. But SHE was the one who put a knife through her hand (story here: https://www.delightfulrepast.com/2012/06/pork-chops-pork-chop-incident.html)

Thank you for stopping by my blog.. The potato recipe sounds delicious.. I need to try it very soon.. I love to cook and am always looking for new recipes. A good set of knives would be awesome!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Anne. Do let me know how you like the potatoes this way. And all the best on the giveaway!

Lady Linda said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. Oh, these potatoes look wonderful. You asked about the little bonnet pinkeeps. I thought they were from the 1930's and 1940's due to some of the fabrics. I did find a pattern that was dated 1936. I imagine they were made into the 1950's too.
Have a lovely day.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Linda. And thank you for the information. More often than not when I ask a question on a blog, I never get an answer, so I really appreciate it.

These potatoes look delicious, Jean! I've never tried cooking potatoes in this style before, but it'll be a nice change to give them a try! Thank you for sharing them :)

Gemma, thank you. I hope you'll try them soon and let me know you liked them.

This is such a good idea, Jean! I've always said it's a shame they don't do frozen home fries in the UK, but this is an easy, healthier option! I'm so very glad you shared it!

You and I are so in alignment; I prepare my oven roasted potatoes in the very same way because I can't be bothered with flipping or turning. And the seasoning? Depends upon my mood. I'm just tickled to see I'm not alone in this regard. The first thing I'd make with a dandy of a knife like the one you're giving away is...well...sheet pan home fries! I've got a new set of knives so no need to enter an email address - I'm happy for another reader to have a chance to win. Best wishes!

Brooks, you've probably noticed as I have that after years of doing something a certain way, you get to a point where you decide to skip some details, and then you find out you could've made it easier on yourself ALL THESE YEARS! :D

I would use this knife to make SUSHI! jmargwarth@gmail.com

Jaquline, I've never made sushi, but this knife would work very well for it, I'm sure.

Hi Jean, Thanks for visiting my site. I like seeing your site with all these recipes. They look so good.
I want to enter your giveaway. My very first thing I made with a knife was when I cooked for the very first time. I made stuffed pork chops with stuffing balls surrounding the pork chops. Because it was my very first time I worked and worked on this. When everything was done, I was so excited I made my very first actual dinner and items.
I do hope I win so I can make more good dinners.
What would I make with this knife if I won it? I think I'd use the knife to chop up potatoes for a Western Omelet, Use the knife to chop up onions for Macaroni salad, Potato salad, Naming just 1 thing is tough. I think I could use this to Chop all kinds of vegetables for vegetable soup. I really could use this knife.
My email: don(dot)stewart(at)zoominternet(dot)net
I wrote my email like this for privacy sake.
I hope I win.

Although I love stovetop home fries, they certainly do take a bit of work, as well as time at the stove. Love your sheet pan version! A lot easier. And I love roast potatoes, so I know I'd love these (pretty similar -- a good thing, in my book). Thanks!

Thanks, Crystal. I love your cats! Well, truth be told, I love ALL cats. If you like pork chops, you might like my story The Pork Chop Incident, https://www.delightfulrepast.com/2012/06/pork-chops-pork-chop-incident.html.

Thanks, John. Yep, the stovetop kind take a lot of time at the stove and then a lot of time at the sink! :D
