Oven Fries

So, this is kind of another embarrassing recipe, because it is so simple it isn't even really a recipe...but it's so simple i wanted to tell you just in case you didn't know how to make these. Every once in a while you can find a 5-10 lb bag of potatoes for LESS THAN A DOLLAR!! That is super cheap. So make up some baked potato soup or some hashbrowns, or baked potato scramble and then make a batch of oven fries as a side for your rueben sandwiches, sloppy joes, or burgers. You can use any seasoning to go along with what you're having. If you're making a meatball sub or sausage and pepper wrap--use some parmesan cheese and italian seasoning on your fries to go along. For a bbq chicken sandwich sprinkle on some paprika. This recipe is just a basis for endless possibilities. (It also works with sweet potatoes!) If you're feeling naughty sprinkle on some freshly shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon and green onions at the end.

You can absolutely use olive oil for drizzling but I use cooking spray because that way the oven fries are very lean and low-cal. ALSO-- a drizzle of truffle oil on these babies is delish!
Oven Fries

2 lbs baking potatoes, scrubbed
cooking spray
seasoned salt
granulated garlic
pepper to taste
After scrubbing your potatoes pierce them with a fork and stick them in the microwave for 3-5 minutes...just to get them started. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise and cut into thin wedges. Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray then arrange the wedges on the pan and spray them with cooking spray. Sprinkle liberally with seasoned salt, garlic, and pepper. Bake at 400 for 7-10 minutes, turn the fries and cook another 7-10 minutes.
