directions

  • Adjust the oven rack to the lowest position in the oven. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Cut the potatoes lengthwise into eights to form wedges. Toss the potatoes with the oil on a heavy baking sheet or jelly-roll pan, and arrange them flat in a single layer.
  • Bake the potatoes without turning, until the bottoms are golden and crisp, about 20 minutes; turn potatoes to the other side. Bake 10 minutes more until crisp. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    Can't sat that I used Idaho spuds but I did use good Canadian russets and got really grand "fries". Sometimes you really want the good basic article and that's what you get here, a delicious, seasoned, recipe that lets you enjoy the taste of the potato. The perfect side for tonight's burgers. :D

    I live in Idaho so I figured I BETTER get this recipe right ha ha! And I think I did! They are simply awesome! I loved not having to peel the potatoes. I only used one potato, cut it into 8 equal parts (almost equal!) & followed the recipe pretty closely. Really crispy outside like I love. Hubby even compared them to the fries at "Big Juds"--an Idaho CLASSIC restaurant! It's a keeper & thank you for sharing!!!!

    These were great! So simple and good. I was a little afraid of putting them on the bottom rack but so glad that I tried it. They came out perfect - crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Thanks Amber Dawn for a nice keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    This method is fantastic. I never thought of placing the pan on the bottom rack, guess I was afraid of them burning. the fries were nice and crunchy. I will use this method often. Thanks.
