My style oven fries

slice:: an onion, a dozen or so mini carrots~cut in half, rest of mushrooms in refer(6?)~sliced, set aside in small bowl
wash and cut:: 6 - 8 potatoes into 1/8 wedges, also set aside
combine in large bowl ::
1/4 C melted butter (marj)
2 T chopped garlic more or less
1/4 - 1/2 C EVOO
to taste:: Italian seasonings, pepper, paprika, garlic and onion powders, parsley, misc seasonings and herbs again to your preferred taste. I may do about 1/2 t each or ??
first:: add veggies into oil mixture, mix well,
next::add in potatoes, also mix well
then::add in 1/4 - 1/2 C parm cheese mix well into all ingredients
if still oily add in flour and small amount salt perhaps 1/4 C and 1/4t
place on large baking pan::bake uncovered 375 for 40 - 50 minutes

My ingredients quantity is variable depending on your preferred taste and quantity of veggies and potatoes (IE:: 6 or 8 potatoes) I am creating this to use up some veggies wasting away in the fridge. Plus, I have been wanting to try roasting veggies since I got this new to me oven. Instead, I am always making frozen pizzas and different kinds of cookies LOL
I will try to add a pic in when I make this recipe probably Sunday night with root beer crock pot ham. I am cooking in a crock pot bag but using it more like a baking bag
