My "recipes" are sometimes more of a method than a recipe and that includes this one. This method can be tweaked, altered, adjusted and modified according to personal taste and cooking style. Increase or decrease the spices and the amounts of potatoes as you wish and they will always come out great.
Easy Oven Fries
Heat the oven to 450 degrees (or 425 degrees convection). Peel about six medium potatoes (or don't peel if you have nice yellow or red skinned potatoes and are feeling lazy or rushed) and cut into wedges or "fries". Try to keep the wedges the same size and thickness as much as possible so that they will bake evenly.
Put 1/2 cup of mayonnaise into a large bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.
Throw the potato wedges into the bowl and toss them around in the mayonnaise.
Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a greased baking sheet.
Bake in the hot oven for 30 minutes (20-30 minutes in convection), turning or stirring as necessary, until sizzling and browned.
The bonus is a variation- instead of using mayonnaise, use Dijon mustard! Or try it with sweet potatoes! Double mmmmmm.......
