Baked French Fries

These simple baked fries are a must when we make burgers in my home. For a real treat, try using sweet potatoes instead of white ones and enjoy the combination of spicy and sweet.
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground red pepper -- choose the variety according to your heat tolerance!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the baking potatoes lengthwise into thin strips -- about 1/4" thick. Place the potatoes and the remaining ingredients into a large resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag and shake it vigorously to evenly coat the potatoes with oil and spices.

Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the prepared potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn the potatoes and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Serve hot.
