French fries are popular in many countries and go by a bunch of different names. These are cut more like what you would consider potato wedges. I have tried a few different French fry recipes and have been fairly disappointed with each. Even though I wouldn’t consider this recipe the perfect French fry recipe… it’s still one of the better recipes I have tried. I feel what made the difference was the chili powder; it gave the fries a great flavor. This recipe doesn’t use any type of batter but only oil and various seasonings. These will go great with sandwiches or burgers. It is very important to turn the fries over half way through or they will burn. I have made the mistake of not turning them over before. These fries are baked in the oven and not deep fried. Enjoy.
