My dad's recipe. They make a great side dish that can be served with just about anything - my family loves them with bbqed steak and grilled veggie skewers, or fried perch and mushy peas. I love them because they're vegan and take no time to make!

As there are only few potato varieties in Germany, I used what I had on hand - medium sized organic potatoes. Love this recipe - one of my favourite ways to have potatoes!

These are very good.I use olive oil.I usually season with my own cajan seasoning.Note to "Tinkerbell" I grind my rosemary in a spice grinder.You will get the wonderful flavor ,but not the sticks.I put all in zip bag to coat then just toss bag.

I used the potatoes I had on hand, not sure what type they are, but they were pretty small (about 1/2 the size of a baker) so I used 7 of them with the remaining ingredients staying the same. Now, I have to preface this by warning that I am the only one in the house that actually LOVES rossemary. My boys (DH & DS 15)complain every time I use it that I must've rolled their meat or in this case, fries, in the dirt cause there are little sticks all over it. lol They do put up with me using rosemary, however, they usually wipe theirs off before eating. They loved the flavor & texture of these fries & I've already been asked to make them again. I may use a different herb on their portions next time, but I'll definitely use the rosemary on mine. I think it was a very sophisticated way of eating a fry & I loved the flavor. They browned up nicely & were so quick & easy to make. Thanks for sharing your dad's recipe, KDub! Made & enjoyed for the Spring 2009 Pick A Check Orphanage.
