Ok, so like every person in the world( if you are not then your most likely lying to yourself) …I am a french fry addict. Not wanting to buy a ton of frozen foods and looking for a slightly healthier way to feed my addiction, I began experimenting with baking potatoes. Not to mention it is a lot less expensive than buying frozen fries and doesn’t take much prep time. I figured since I baked sweet potato fries before, why not make regular crispy fries? Now it is the only way I want my fries. Heavily Seasoned & Baked.
Ingredients: (serves 2 as side dish)
1 large Potato
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasonings
1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
Nonstick Cooking Spray
Salt & Pepper to Taste
1.Preheat oven to 400 and spray a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Slice Potato into halves longways. Then cut potato into small wedges.
3. Place wedges in a large bowl and mix in Olive Oil, Italian Seasoning, Smoked Paprika, and Onion Powder. Mix together until potato wedges are covered in seasonings.
4. Spread potato wedges onto baking pan. Sprinkle ground black pepper and salt onto potato wedges.
5. Cook for 25 minutes. (*If you want extra-crunchy fries I would recommend cooking for 30 minutes.) Sprinkle salt and pepper again before serving.
