Home Fries

Home Fries

6-8 Medium Potatoes
1/4 Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Herbs (Dill or rosemary are our favorites)

Preheat you oven to 450 degrees F. Scrub potatoes and the remove eyes and bad spots. Slice into fries and place into a 9 x 13 baking dish or bar pan. We used to use the Pampered Chef Stoneware Bar Pan but mine was broken by my kitchen helper recently. Keep your cell-phone close by if you are expecting and important call.
Drizzle olive oil over the fries and turn them to make sure all the fries are coated with oil. Dust with sea salt and sprinkle on the herbs. A couple tablespoons of dill is fine. Half a tablespoon of rosemary is plenty. We like to chop up our rosemary in a food chopper. Garlic and onion powders are good, but they burn easily so put them after the fries have finish cooking.

If you're like Amanda, you'll pop that handful of dill into your mouth when you think your mother isn't looking. You'll also have tried celery seed, garlic and onion in this manner.
Put the fries in the oven and bake for 15-30 minutes until they are browned and crispy. We turn on the convection option to make them cook faster.
Enjoy! Don't eat too many! The left-overs can be refrigerated and reheated in the stove.

Yum! Maybe we'll try them tonight. We are having breakfast for dinner & I have some potatoes I gotta use up from the organic co-op (unfortunately, they don't last as long as non-organic).
