Our Favorite Oven Fries

I'm not sure why people buy frozen fries when real, fresh potatoes are so much better than anything that comes in a bag.  I guess the bagged versions are supposed to be some kind of time saver, but really?  How long does it take to chop up some potatoes, season them the way you like it, and pop them in the oven?

I can tell you that the prep takes me approximately 10 minutes.

Here is the recipe I use: 

4 russett potatoes with skins, sliced
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2c. grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp.salt
1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1.  Preheat oven to 425* and line baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.  Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat.

3.  Spread the potatoes over the baking sheet.

4.  Bake until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork,
about 25 minutes.
We had these last night with grilled burgers topped with bacon,
bleu cheese, and guacamole.
My son took one bite and said, "These fries are awesome!"
