Fabulous Oven Fries

I don't post recipes very often, but this one is too good not to share. It's pretty basic, but I've been looking for a good french fry recipe for a while, and this one is REALLY good. We've been having burgers and fries way too often because of these. I've made a few minor changes to the original recipe. I hope you enjoy. Robin's Fabulous Oven Fries 3 T. Vegetable Oil (or canola, but don't use olive oil) Salt & Pepper (or steak seasoning) Cajun seasoning 4-8 Whole Potatoes (we use red potatoes because they are our favorite and they cook up really well with this recipe) 1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. 2. Slice potatoes into french fries. Soak them in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. 3. Prepare a baking sheet by covering it with a piece of aluminum foil and then pouring 2 T. vegetable oil and spreading it over the entire pan. (this first piece of a aluminum foil is optional. It just makes clean up easier, but I always fold the sides of the foil up to prevent the oil from draining down onto the pan below the foil and away from the potatoes) 4. After potatoe slices are done soaking drain them and pat them dry. Stir in remaining 1 T. oil and salt/pepper/steak seasoning/cajun seasoning. 5. Spread potatoes on pan in a single layer and add additional seasonings if needed. 6. Cover fries with another sheet of aluminum foil and bake at 475 for 10 minutes. 7. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. 8. Flip fries and rotate pan. Bake for an additional 10-20 minutes until fries are golden crispy. 9. Serve with ketchup, ranch, or your favorite dipping sauce. My personal favorite is a mixture of ketchup/mayo/cajun seasoning.
