Another Baked Fries Recipe

I had a few potatoes left over and was thinking I should find something to do with them and I was at my computer reading the Chicago Tribune when I saw this recipe.

I decided to give it a shot. The results were good however mine were a bit well done. Next time I would watch them closer or cook them less or at a lower temperature. Consider yourself forewarned.

2 pounds potatoes
2 Tbls. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Paprika
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes, to taste

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut each potato into eight long wedges. Place potatoes in a large saucepan with salted water to cover. Heat over high heat to a simmer. Reduce heat to low; cook 5 minutes. Drain. Place the wedges on a baking sheet. Mix the oil and spices in a small bowl. Brush the oil mixture over the potatoes to evenly coat. Bake 10 minutes, turn wedges. Bake 10 minutes. Turn broiler on and broil until potatoes are crisp on top about 5 minutes but keep your eye on it as it goes fast. Turn potatoes and broil second side about 5 minutes.

This looks good--and the pre-boiling and the use of the broiler makes this faster than my usual "toss it in the oven and walk away for a hour" roasted potato approach. I find that whatever spices work with roasted potatoes also work for roasting carrots and sweet potatoes.
