Making your own home fries is so easy and pairs perfectly with a night of grilling burgers.
- 4 large russet potatoes
- olive oil
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- seasoning salt
- red pepper flakes
- Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Set aside. Wash and pat dry the potatoes. With each potato, quarter and then cut each quarter into wedges. Once cut into wedges, add all the potatoes into a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and then add generous amounts of desired seasonings. We tend to like some spice and heat to ours, so I’ve used chili powder, paprika, and even cayenne pepper. I’ve also used a packet of dry ranch before. You get the idea, use whatever sounds good to you. Since potatoes have a tendency to absorb salt, add more than you normally would. Using your hands, mix together the potatoes and seasonings to fully incorporate onto each wedge. Spread out onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 -12 minutes, remove from oven, and using a spatula, turn wedges over onto the other side. Return to the oven and bake another 10 -12 minutes or until desired crispness and/ or golden color is achieved.
