Also, for the record, I promise we’re not all desserts and treats here. Uh…really. It’s just been an interesting posting month. Honest.
This is an easy side dish, perfect for weekends in. Combine spices, potatoes, and a drizzle of olive oil, and all that’s left is to bake and then savor the goodness. Savor it, people.
The spice mixture will give you enough for four potatoes. We used half of the spice mixture with two potatoes one night and the second half another night and it worked out beautifully. Store remaining spices in an airtight bag or a jar for up to one month.
We served these with baked chicken tenders. Sooooo good. We used russet potatoes, on account of that’s what we had on hand. But branch out! Embrace your freedom! Try it with sweet potatoes if you so desire. I so desire, and will be doing so shortly.
*Beware, these really are spicy! Feel free to decrease the cayenne and paprika if you want.
Spicy Oven-Baked Fries
1 1/2tsp pepper
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp onion powder
4 medium potatoes, washed and left unpeeled.
Combine all spices in a bowl. Slice potatoes into 1/2″ thick slices. Toss with spices and 1-2 Tbsp olive oil. Stir to coat well.
Spread fries accross a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. (If using all four potatoes at once, you will need two baking sheets).
Bake at 400 degrees 15-25 minutes (depending on how crispy you like them). If you remember, toss potatoes halfway through the cooktime.
Savor. The. Goodness.
