First of all, I’m just not that much of a French Fry fan. I think they’re okay, don’t get me wrong, and every once in a while I have one that’s great. But that one great one ruins every other French Fry for me for a long time. And Frozen French Fries? I’m a hater. It’s a strong word, hater, but it’s true. That’s why I had to come up with these Stupid Simple French Fries.
I don’t usually go for stuff on my fries. Any stuff. Not even ketchup and certainly not (la-di-da me) anything ooey, gooey or soggy. No gravy, no marinara, no nuthin. I think a good fry, like a good steak, should stand alone in all it’s glory. Until today.
I gotta talk to you about baked fries, potato wedges, oven fries or whatever ya want to call them. You know what I mean, right? Cut your potatoes into wedges, toss them in a little oil and cook them in a hot oven for 30 to 45 minutes or so?
I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s tried dozens of different and increasingly complicated ways to get oven baked Sweet Potato fries to come out right. I almost gave up on the idea of a crispy Sweet Potato Fry when I tried one more method – and it is so easy it’s “stupid” simple.
