So, I LOVE french fries. It's gotten to the point where I have to eat only at Mexican restaurants to avoid these grease-heavy jewels, because they are everywhere. I'm starting to suspect that substituting them with deep fried tortillas isn't helping my case.
Tim asked me to make him fries to go with his cheeseburger, and it's been ions since I've made these. I don't think I've ever blogged them, either *any of my readers are welcome to correct the latter statement*. They're like that one thing that you've made out to be so big in your mind that you avoid it like the plague, for...well...ever.
Turns out I was making a huge deal out of nothing again.
These are effortlessly so divine. I love Arby's, but I think these blow their potato wedges out of the water. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Ingredients (for 2):
- 4 medium red potatoes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Garlic salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Dried seasonings (oregano, parsley, basil, etc.)
- Wash and pat dry potatoes
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
- Cut into 1/8th's
- Pour olive oil into a bowl. Place all sliced potatoes into the bowl and, using your hands, gently toss with oil.
- Place on a baking sheet. Top with salt, pepper and seasonings
- Bake about 45 minutes, flipping about 30 minutes through. But like I always say, keep an eye on them. Every oven is different, and some will cook quicker than others.
