Oven Baked Fries

I must say, I think these are some of my favorites! Lord knows I love fries!

3 russet potatoes
Olive Oil
Any other herbs you want to add!

Preheat your oven to 475, and like always if your oven is like mine and burns EVERYTHING preheat to about 450. Skin and slice your potatoes however think or thin you want, thicker will take longer to cook, thinner will cook quick! Mine are usually about the width of my finger.

Toss them in Olive oil, enough to coat them. Spread them on a cookie sheet and add salt and pepper.
Here is where you can get creative, for some Italian fries I sprinkle on some garlic powder, basil, and oregano. Some spicy fries I sprinkle on cumin, chilli powder, and a little crushed red pepper. Get creative and mix it up!

 Bake them for about 15-20 minutes (until they are light brown on the bottom) and then flip them over and bake for another 15-20 minutes. 

There you have it! Enjoy!

  1. I've been cooking peppers and onions in the skillet on the grill a lot lately. I'll have to add jalapenos next time. Yum. I like cooking bacon that way too, although hot fat + open flame adds a nice element of danger. I used to get flank steak, but my husband got me to try the carne asada cut from our local market, and I prefer it. Not sure if it's thin-cut flank or skirt (I'll have to ask), but it looks like this
