Yummy Oven Fries
In last week’s Random Tuesday Suko featured a recipe for Oven Fries. I made them this weekend and these were the best tasting potatoes I’ve eaten in a long, long time. My husband was eating them so fast I had to hurry to get some on my plate before they were all gone.
Soaking them in water first must make the difference. I used Russet Potatoes but any type will work. Dry them off, add a teaspoon or two of oil, season and cook at 400°F for about 40 minutes. In this picture I’m flipping them so they cook evenly. These are so good and so easy to make I’m wondering why I never tried them before.
Gmail Offers Recipe Advice
While clearing my gmail spam folder yesterday I noticed that google offered me an ad link for:
Spam Vegetable Strudel – bake 20 min or until golden brown, serve with soy sauce.
Ewwwwwwh. I’m not suggesting anyone try this. I think they need to fine-tune their ad link generator.
