Here is a very simple recipe that I enjoy making. This recipe is easy to prepare and you can use ingredients you probably already have around your house. The recipe is for Roasted Potato Fries. All you need to make this is potatoes, olive oil and spices.

Besides this being very delicious and a lot less calories than traditional fries, I like to make them when my potatoes are going bad. That way, I have delicious fries that I can eat or freeze and they taste as good time after time.

For the recipe, you first wash the potatoes. Then you cut them into wedges (the thickness really depends on your preference). After you cut them, spray with olive oil and top with seasoning. Then bake in the oven on 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. If you are strapped for time, you can bake the potatoes in the microwave for 5 to 10 minutes first to soften them up, and then put them in the oven to get crispy.

For the seasoning, there are many ways to go. My favorite way of making these includes using seasoned salt, and Cajon seasoning. This makes the fries with a kick and they taste great dipped in sour cream or ranch. However, if you do not like spicy food, try putting salt, pepper, thyme and oregano. This will give it a lighter taste.

Either way, this side dish is great and easy to serve. Enjoy!
