Quick Time Oven Fries [Rhonda]
These fries are super easy and can cook while you get the rest of the dinner underway. They're perfect with burgers but can fancy up next to roasted chicken or a grilled pork chop.
There's one magic ingredient. So shop for it and keep it stocked. (It's good for grilling meat, too.)
Potatoes (Idaho, if you've got)
Cayenne pepper (optional for some, a must for me)
Magic ingredient: McCormick Grill Mates Smokehouse Maple Seasoning
Preheat the oven to 425 F. Slice the potatoes into long chunky slivers, dump into a mixing bowl, pour a little olive oil over to lightly coat, sprinkle the dry ingredients in, toss.
Spread onto a cookie sheet, making sure they're not clustered together and can crisp nicely on their own. Sprinkle a little more McCormick's on top, a bit more smoked paprika, and another sprinkle of salt. Bake in upper part of the oven for 20 minutes, then turn the oven off and leave them in there for another 10 minutes or so to insure crispness. Serve immediately.
Suggested soundtrack: Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home"
