I know it is very basic, but tonight they were so good, I thought some unexperienced cooks might not know how to make them.....


Preheat oven to 425

Big Idaho baking potatoes, cut the long way into 6ths or 8ths
Olive oil
salt, pepper and whatever herbs and spices you prefer

Place potato wedges on a baking sheet. Drizzle with enough olive oil to coat the potatoes and have a thin layer on the bottom of the pan. Toss the potatoes so they are coated.
Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley, and/or whatever else you like.

Bake, tossing every 20 minutes, until crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside. this will take about 45 mins, or so.

I make this often as DH loves potatoes done this way. Make a lot because they are addictive!

I might make those tonight, they sound good and I have never made potatoes that way. What spices do you put on them besides salt, pepper and garlic powder?

Baked french fries. Russets work well. So does butter instead of the oil. I start with 4 T, half in the pyrex baking dish, and half melted and drizzled over the potatoes. 425 for 35-40 minutes, drizzling in another 2 T of butter at 25-30 mintes or so. Only problem with these is that there are never enough for everyone to have seconds!

Simple and delicious dish! I tried this recipe about few days ago. It was a huge hit with my family. I did have to add a few sprinkles of salt to the top after I took them out of the oven, though. I tried this recipe again today, but I modified it a little. I put the parsley in before I put it in the oven and I added a pinch of onion powder and a few dashes of Parmesan cheese. They came out delicious!

Last night, dried parsley with the garlic powder, but I have used Monterey Steak Seasoning, or Chili Powder. Rosemary is good, especially with lamb, or you can do Italian herbs too.

Baked potatoes are always best with goose fat.

Mmm... Goose fat potatoes, the perfect Christmas food.

I do the same thing with sweet potatoes as well.
Actually any root vegetable - golden or red beets, carrots, parsnips, turnip, etc.

Regular potatoes are awesome with salt, pepper and rosemary. Otherwise I use McCormicks Jamaican jerk seasoning rub.
