• baked potato frites

    I've had food on the brain a lot, lately. Here's one of my easy favorites for your Sunday afternoon:

    Baked Potato Frites

    You will need:
    - potatoes (I use russet, but these can easily be done with red potatoes, sweet potatoes, or any other variety, really)
    - olive oil
    - salt & pepper to taste

    1. Preheat oven to 450°F
    2. Wash and slice potatoes into fry-sized pieces
    3. Place unbaked frites on a cookie sheet. Douse with enough olive oil that the frites are coated. I like to arrange them in rows so that they're easy to flip later on.
    4. Place the cookie sheet in the oven for approximately 12-15 minutes.
    5. Remove from oven and flip the frites. (If you're having trouble with the frites sticking to the cookie sheet, try popping them in the oven for a few more minutes first).
    6. Put the frites back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
    7. Remove frites from oven, transfer them to a plate, and sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.
    8. Savor and/or devour accordingly.
