Why there is no need to purchase pre-made fries in the freezer aisle – in pictures and rhyme:

One potato (find a potato)

Two potato (cut the ends off)

Three potato (cut slices)

Four (cut fries from slices)

Five potato (Toss in herbs and olive oil)

Six potato (Bake)

Seven potato (Eat!)

More! (Eat More!)

See how easy?  Just a knife and a potato and ta-da: french fries!

Ingredients
  • 1 large Potato
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425˚.
  2. Before cutting potato, rinse well under water. From there, cut the ends off the potato, stand up on end, and cut slices from the potato that are ¼" thick (depending on how thick you want your fries- cut accordingly) Take slices and cut fries out of the potato-using ¼ " as the measurement.
  3. Once all fries are cut, place in medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients, tossing until every piece is covered. Spread out onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes, flip the fries, and bake for a remaining 10-15 until fries are crispy (35-45 minutes total.) Make sure to not over crowed the pan- this is result in uneven baking.
