Wishing it was summer... oven fries

Tonight it was one of those nights that I was ready for summer.  Ready to grill, ready to eat outside, ready to be warm and sit in the sun.  So we had grilled chicken sausages, done up like hotdogs with feta, mustard, onions (on mine and the Big Guy's) and celery salt.  And to go with those we had our new favorite side dish, oven fries. 

They're pretty simple, but they taste good and they're so much better for you than the fries you'd get at the burger joint down the street.

Three big potatoes
olive oil (in a spray bottle like a misto or the one by Pampered Chef)

Take the potato and slice off one of the sides so you have a flat surface to work on.  Then cut the rest of the sides, leaving only a little skin on the top.

Slice the potato into 1/2 inch slices.

Then turn it and cut it into sticks.

Put them on a cookie sheet and spray them well with the olive oil.  Sprinkle them with salt.

Put them in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.   Then stick them on a high broil for another 10 minutes or until they start to look brown.  (These did not get very brown, we were hungry!)

Serve with burgers, or sausage, or hot dogs... or just about anything else.



  1. yummmy. I need to try those soon. Where did you get those potatoes? They are looking nice!
