French Fries Recipe

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 halfway 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.

    WoW! Cool french fries recipe. There is nothing like them, specially when paprika, garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder are added to them.

  2. Hi

    i don’t want to crash the Parade ,,,,but a few helping hints !! for you !!

    -cut real wedges ( so they can stand )
    -cook/blanche them for 5 minutes ( let them cool )
    – put them in a plastic bag and give the spices to it ( shake them and leave them for several minutes in the bag ( no salt )
    -put them in the oven ( 220 C )20-30 min
    let them stand in a row like plastic Soldiers
    -during baking ,,,,spray salty water on the wedges ( this makes them crunchy )
