recipe for stephanie

i know this always goes the other way, stephanie is one of my best contacts for recipes and her cooking is truly a sensual delight. but i just read this post on the guilty pleasure of french fries and have a 1/2 way solution for you - made at home - no greasy ick, and they are truly the best we've ever had. liam just made them tonight for supper. here's his secret recipe:

  • preheat oven to 475
  • take the best potatos you can afford and slice into long 1/8's (do not peel)
  • drizzle a cooking sheet with olive oil and brush to cover
  • season oil with any seasonings you like, we use salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne
  • layer potato wedges on oil
  • cover with foil (important!)
  • put in oven as close to element as possible for 5 minutes
  • remove foil and return to oven for 10 minutes
  • remove from oven and flip potato wedges
  • bake for 10 more minutes
  • enjoy hot with wonderful dipping sauces
these are the best oven fries you will ever eat - crispy on the outside, tender inside - perfect with burgers on the grill or steak - yummy! or if you want with gravy! :) love you girlfriend!
