Seasoned Oven Fries

I only make honestly fried french fries a few times a year, so these oven fries fit the bill when we're hankering for crispy potato sticks. They can be seasoned to pair with whatever flavor is present in the main dish or simply with salt and pepper, so sprinkle away!

Here's a rough list of what I usually sprinkle on them:

4-5 medium potatoes, unpeeled and cut into fries.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Toss potatoes and oil together in a bowl.

Liberally shake on salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and cayenne powder, to taste, and stir until potatoes are evenly coated

Other variations include grated parmesan, thyme, sage, oregano, rosemary (in whatever combinations you like).

Bake in a single layer on a baking sheet or jellyroll pan. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven until golden brown and crispy, about 30 to 45 minutes. Flip them every 5 to 10 minutes so they bake evenly, and serve fresh from the oven.
