On Saturdays our main meal of the day is at lunch (after work for My Love).
In addition to our leftover beef rice soup - I was in the mood for
homemade baked french fries. A quick internet search revealed these.
Here is my version...
I used 2 potatoes for 2 of us.
Cut unpeeled raw potatoes into french fry sticks and soak in
cold water for at least 1/2 hour.
Then drain and pat dry.
Place cookie sheet or flat pan in oven while preheating to 400 degrees.
(A hot pan means no parchment paper needed)
While pan is heating - toss oil and seasonings in big dish.
1 T Olive oil
Seasonings(feel free to vary):
1/2 t. Seasoned salt
1/2 t. Basil
1/8 t. Cumin
1/8 - 1/4 t. Chili powder
Add dry potatoes and stir till good and seasoned.
Put a single layer on heated pan (it will sizzle!).
Bake at 400 for 35-40 min. Increase to 450
degrees for additional 5 min or so at the end
(or per your crispness preference)
I do believe these are the yummiest baked fries I've ever made.
They just might show up on the table next week again!
Happy Saturday everyone ~Joyce
