Seasoned Crispy Fries
Seasoned Crispy Fries and an Unseasoned Blogger....
I am the Unseasoned Blogger. This morning I had a close friend come to the house. She helped me jazz up my blog. It needed a lift. She is a Business teacher at one of the local high schools. She is an excellent teacher!! She is resourceful, knowledgable, and a dependable friend.
Guess what? She gave me a new cookbook for my birthday...ALL chocolate desserts. Thank you ma'am!!
When my husband came home from work..he saw my new cookbook sitting on the countertop. He had a fit! He asked me "What's for dessert tonight?"
My kids were so patient and tolerant of me being on the computer all day. They never complained or fussed about it, my kids are so good to their Momma.
I made them something special for lunch today.. homemade french fries...Seasoned Crispy Fries.
WoW..we appreciate a good french fry around here. My oldest son would eat french fries for breakfast if I let him. French fries are his favorite food with a close second being.. "Extreme Dill Pickle Potato Chips."
I found this recipe at Lynn's Kitchen. Lynn is one of my favorite food bloggers. It seems like everything she posts...I want to try! Thank you! Keep em' coming Lynn.
Seasoned Crispy Fries/ French Fries
Preheat oven to 450. Peel taters.
Cut them into sticks...french fry sticks.
Put vegtable oil and seasoning in mixing bowl and add potatoes. Mix well. You want all the potatoes to be covered.
Dump potatoes on baking sheet and bake 15 minutes. Stir potatoes to loosen, and bake about 10 minutes more. You want the edges crisp.

Recipe courtesy of Lynn's Kitchen Adventure
2-3 lbs. of russet/ baking potatoes
1/4 cup vegtable oil
2 teaspoons Emeril's Seasoing. (I used Jane's Krazy Mixed-up Salt/ Original) My all time favorite!!! Jane's Krazy Mixed-up Salt/ original is good on anything: potatoes, fish, pasta, chicken, ect. Look for it at your local grocery store.
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Peel poatoes and cut into french fry size. Slice them and then cut slices into sticks about 1/4-1/3 inches thick. Toss potatoes in oil and seasoning. Bake for 15 minutes, stir potatoes to loosen, and bake 10 more minutes or until edges are crisp.
The verdict... watch out McDonalds!
