    Merrie Wold's Note:

    This is the easy version of a popular dish at our house. If I don't use the soup mix, I concoct my own version with herbs (rosemary is great here), sea salt, hot sauce, and whatever comes to hand. Any kind of potato can be used resulting in a slightly different texture of the dish. Oil should be added just to coat the potatoes, they don't need to be drenched. Or for a lighter version, spray the potatoes with cooking oil and delete the olive oil. This is so easy, but it's so good.

      Got home unexpectably late and exhausted, and had 10 minutes to prepare something for dinner to go with the ham and rolls I brought home from the store. I went to the computer, typed in oven fries and luckily, picked these. Perfect. Had them in the oven in 5 minutes. I cut them thinner than recommended here and they were done in 30 minutes. Thanks, Merrie.

      This is very yummy. I made these last night and they came out great-and were very easy. I halved the recipe and used a little less oil. Since Merrie is my stepmom, I have also eaten these at her house where she used the method described in her description using the rosemary & herbs and enjoyed them that way too.
