Oven Baked Fries

Looking for a simple and easy idea to replace those fatty French fries? Try my lightly crisp potato wedges. A perfect coating provides these super easy fries with their wonderful taste. Baked in the oven, they're a zippy, lightly spicy alternative to deep-fat fried potatoes. You can have fun with the coating--add some onion powder, Cajun seasoning or any spices your family prefers. They are so yummy your kids won't believe they are eating healthy! These are delicious plain, but may be dipped in honey mustard sauce or ketchup. Yummy!!!!

Makes 4 servings

IngredientsOven Baked Fries

3 large unpeeled Russet potatoes, scrubbed clean and cut into eight wedges

2 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil

1/2 tsp seasoned salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp fresh black pepper

A pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.

2. Place the potatoes into a bowl with cold water; this will help keep the fries crisp. Just before cooking, drain water and place on paper towel, pat dry.

3. Add the oil and all the spices. Toss well with your hands until all the potato wedges are covered with oil and spices.

4. Spread the fries out in a single layer on one large baking sheet or use two. Make sure your potatoes are not too crowded because they will not be crispy.

5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until crispy and brown on one side. Turn the fries over using a spatula, and cook for another 20 minutes, or until they are all crispy on the outside and tender inside.

Note: The cooking time depends completely on the thickness of your fries, so the cooking time may vary.
