The Duggar's Oven Fries

The book "The Duggars: Twenty and Counting" contains this recipe. It has become one of my simple go to side dishes. It is cheap and easy - the potatos cook quickly in the oven and are a complete hit with the children and my husband! So if you are hard pressed for what to go with your chicken or beef - add this to the plate and your family will cheerfully eat them and be stuffed.

Recipe for Duggar's Oven Fries
  • One potato per person you are serving, sliced lengthwise
  • Olive Oil (I tend to use Vegetable oil since I have more of it on hand)
  • Garlic powder, salt and pepper (or chili pepper if desired)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Rub the potato with 2 tablespoons of olive oil (or put the oil in a plastic bag and toss with the potato slices). Sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice. Spread the slices on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown and fork tender and voila - golden steak fries! ENJOY!!!!
