Greek-style oven fries

From "Simply in Season : A World Community Cookbook" by Mary Beth Lind and Cathleen Hockman-Wert

Greek-style oven fries

4 potatoes or sweet potatoes, scrubbed
2 tbs oil
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 cloves garlic, finely minced

Cut potatoes into thin sticks or wedges and large bowl. Blend oil and other ingredients together and pour over potatoes, stirring with a spatula to coat the potatoes.

Spread fries in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake in preheated 425F. oven until golden brown and fork tender, 30-45 minutes. Stir and flip fries every 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately.

You can vary these by switching around the herb you use. Try a dash of Italian seasoning blend along with a couple of tbs of grated Parmesan cheese or substitute an adobo seasoning salt instead of the salt and oregano for a change of pace.

I made these for lunch today and they were GOOD! Gotta try some of the other seasonings another time. I can see these being a regular item on our menu plans. 8-)

Our current favorite seasoning for these is the Zatarain's Creole seasoning -- makes them spicy hot!
