Oven Baked French Fries

As if the title didn't contradict this delicious side dish enough, these potato wedges are full of flavor and, ironically, are really simple to make. One of my room-mates tasted one and couldn't get enough of them. Wahoo! It's hard not to be happy when people love your food :)

Oven Baked French Fries
5 large potatoes, washed
3 T. olive oil
herbs and spices: garlic salt, pepper, curry, cumin, basil, paprika (just a pinch) or just steak and hamburger seasoning (McCormick hamburger seasoning is one of my favorites to use).
*Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut up potatoes into wedges or just make them look like long french fries. Lay them out on a cookie dish. Sprinkle oil over the potatoes and mix using your hands. Sprinkle the seasonings over them, again-using your hands to mix the spices with the potatoes. Bake in oven for 30-45 minutes (depending on how soft or crispy you like your fries). Note: you will need to bake your fries longer if they are cut into wedges in comparison to cutting them into long french fry-like pieces. Serve with ketchup, ranch or homemade fry sauce (my favorite). To make the fry sauce, mix equal amounts of mayonnaise and ketchup together. Delectable!
