Oven fries

I love steak fries.  The thin ones just don’t cut it for me.  Here is a simple recipe for oven fries.


1-2 large Russet potatoes or 4-5 golden potatoes

4-5 T olive oil*

1 tsp salt*

1/2 tsp pepper*



Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Wash potatoes well being sure to remove any dirt.  Do not peel.  Slice potatoes into thick strips.  Mix olive oil with salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Dip potato strips into oil mixture and place on an aluminum-lined baking sheet.  Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes or until you can pierce easily with a fork.  You could turn them part way through but I never do.

*Measurements are approximate.  I do it by how it looks, but this should be pretty close.
