Buttery Oven Fries

These scrumptious, crispy potatoes are a great side for almost any meal. Your meat and potato eaters will definitely scarf them up!


Peel 3 potatoes and cut in to hearty strips.





Pour 1/2 stick of melted butter over the potatoes.




At this point you can season the potatoes any way you like. We used Lawry's Season Salt, a pinch of cayenne pepper and a tablespoon of chopped parsley. I think rosemary would really rock these too.



Toss the potatoes in the butter ans seasonings with your hands to evenly coat each spear.



Line the potato spears on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Until potatoes are golden brown.




Well seasoned, crunchy potatoes make a statement all their own.

Your brother lives in Haywood? ! - what town?

Yeah, you can get here, but have to go via 441 or Gatlinburg or something - my sis in law flew into Knoxville, and had to take that route--it takes a little longer, but it can be done!

(want some taters now!)

Debbie said...

They look like something that needs to be cooked in my house very soon. Delicious!

I can't wait to get an oven and try those! I would never have thought to coat them in butter first but those look really tasty! :)

Pam said...

Everything is better with butter - these look amazing.

Leave it to you to make my favorite tater even better! Butter, I would not have thought that up in a million years! I am doing it with butter next time!

These look so good! I really like the spices that you added, but I agree, it would be so good with rosemary!

Mary said...

These sound really delicious. That butter must take them over the top.

Velva said...

These potatoes do rock! Anything with butter and salt has got to be good! You are right rosemary would really bring the flavor up a notch.

Tried something similar recently, and was amazed I liked the potatoes more than my wife did! She kills for taters, too!

Pam said...

Butter and potatoes. A match made in heaven.

Mary said...

Aw heck, just send that whole plate on over would ya? ;)

Marjie said...

I made these for the first time about a year ago, and called them "oven fries." Of course, my smallest picky eater loved them. I used salad oil instead of butter and they were still magnificent!

Chris said...

Bookmarked! I know my boys will love these.

Bridgett said...

Oh my gosh!! These were amazing. I made them tonight with turkey burgers and they were perfect. My fiance tried one and said, "Oh yeah...this is why I'm marrying you." Thanks for a great recipe!!
