Oven "Fries"

May/June 1993

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (168 votes)

Coated with olive oil and baked in a hot oven, these fries are soft and buttery inside and crisp on the outside—the perfect combination.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I use sea salt, ground pepper, garlic powder and onion powder on mine. Sometimes I add a pinch of cayenne pepper or use Emeril's Essence Seasoning. This is the only way we make fries any more! "

I've been making these fries for years now. My original recipe asked for paprika, too, and a sprinkle of parmesan could be added about 10 minutes prior to removing them from the oven. The paprika gives them a good color.

These were terrific! My husband really enjoyed them. Instead of thyme on them we used "Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt" So fast and easy to make, and healthier and far less messy to make than fried ones are.

After I cut the potatoes, I like to boil them until they're tender, pat them dry, and then get them ready to go into the oven. It takes a little longer with the added step, but I think it makes them a little bit crispier.

I've made these for years. I add parmesan cheese and some seasoned salt. They are a hit every time!

I didn't have any olive oil so melted butter & a small bit of shortening together with dried chives, parsley and old bay seasoning/sea. This was such a great dish-men and teenagers smash hit. When drying wedges well didn't have to cook quite as long-bout 15 min first side and approx 11-12 after turning. Thanks for the great potato dish!
