6 potatoes, medium sized
1/4 c. oil
any other seasonings you like
Cut the potatoes in half - longways - and then into long wedges, about 1/2 inch thick. Try to make all your wedges about the same size. Then put them all into a large bowl and toss with the oil. Add spices and salt and then toss again. Spread out the spuds on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes or until done. Cooking time will vary according to the freshness and thickness of your potatoes - so keep an eye on them. When they are done, take them out and put them on a paper towel on a plate and serve. My husband likes them with BBQ sauce. I like them with ketchup.
Tip - these fries freeze very well. I like to make extra and freeze what we don't eat in a zipper seal bag. Then, when we want fries again, I heat the frozen fries at 425 for about ten minutes or until they are crispy. I think they are even better and more crispy the second time.
Also - I like to season these with Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute.
