The Bestest, Crunchiest, Yummiest Oven Fries

The family gave these fries a top rating at supper tonight - and they WERE good! In fact, when I tried one, I thought, "Oh no! I have gone and made something addicting!" I will have to make them only occasionally or my waist line will reflect my liking for them!
As is my habit, I did not measure ingredients as I cooked. However, it should be fairly simple to guesstimate according to how many potatoes you are using.


1 large potato per person, cut into fries
rice flour to coat - 1-2 Tbsp per potato
seasoning salt
onion salt
olive oil 1-2 Tbsp per potato

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place cut potatoes in a bowl. Toss with flour to coat. Sprinkle generously with seasoning salt and onion salt. Sprinkle olive oil over potatoes and toss to coat. Dump onto baking sheet and cook for 45-60 minutes or until crispy and brown.
Enjoy with ketchup, salsa, or the dipping sauce below.

1 cup sour cream (for dairy free, use 1 cup mayonnaise)
1-2 cups salsa, according to taste
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp taco seasoning
few drops of smoke sauce

Stir all ingredients together - adjust seasoning to taste. Great with vegetables, tacos or fries.

Uh-oh. We rarely eat fries for obvious reasons, but we'll be trying these out. Just thinking about it makes me want to have them for lunch today. Mmmm.

They would make a very satisfying hot lunch on a wintery day.
