I adapted this recipe on allrecipes posted by Barbara Harris. I like it because it's easy and takes approx. 30 mins. to bake. I don't like alot of seasonings on my fries, so I omit the cayenne. No fuss, no muss. They do not, however, turn out really golden and crispy if you are looking for this result.

Nice fries. I added a little Cajun seasoning to go along with our Cajun burgers and they were a real hit. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.
Great! I doubled the oil though.
Quick, easy and makes a great side to a variety of meals. I ended up having to double the spice/seasoning ingredients to get all of the potatoes coated. I also added a little Cajun seasoning to use up what I had on hand from a previous recipe. The fries were tender, delicious and loaded with flavor. Served with Gingered Ham Slice. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
