This is another super yummy recipe that I made for my review of Gooseberry Patch's Rush-Hour Recipes!
I have told you before how I could live on potatoes. I love them in every way, shape and form! So, of course when I saw these baked fries, I knew I would have to try them.
My first bite took me way back to my childhood. They tasted like some french fries we used to get at an old place called Eat A Burger and you could get a big bucket of fries - literally. That was the first thing that popped in my head when I tried these. Isn't that funny how certain things can make you think of something you haven't had in 15-20 years?
I really really liked these fries and I will be making them quite often. Mine didn't get very crispy, but the flavor was amazing. So, if I can figure out how to get them crispy in the oven, then they will be one of my favorite french fries.
Spicy Baked Chili Fries
from: Rush-Hour Recipes submitted by Jo Blair
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. seasoned salt
3 Tbl. olive oil
3 baking potatoes, cut into wedges
Mix spices in a large container with a tight-fitting lid. Add oil and stir; add potato wedges. Put lid on container and seal tightly; shake vigorously to coat potatoes well. Arrange potatoes on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn potatoes over and bake another 15 minutes until tender and golden. Serve plain, with fry sauce or with ranch dressing for dipping. Makes 4-6 servings.
Fry sauce = 1/2 cup of ketchup mixed with 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip.
Jenn's Notes: I loved these fries. I wish they were slightly crispier, but the flavor was amazing.
