Spicy Oven Baked Steak Fries

I love me some fries...

But dang it, they are know in oil! 

Now in this day and age you can't go around eatin' french fries all the time.
And I LOVE me some fries!

So I discovered oven fries a couple of years back, and tricked myself out into thinking..."they are just like french fries".  And you know what?  They really are....maybe not a crispy, but every bit as tasty and a lot healthier. 

And I LOVE me some fries!

So here's a different version, a spicy steak fry.  I mean these babies have KICK!  You can certainly reduce the heat if you feel the need, but they are slammin!

These are really easy to make using nice russet potatoes.  I like those best for my oven fries.

Let's make some Spicy Oven Baked Steak Fries.

So you'll want to wash and peel them.  Then slice the potato in half lengthwise, and cut each half in half again so you have planks.  You'll have about 4 plank or more per potato.  Lay each plank down flat and slice in to medium or large sized steak fries.

Once you've done that you just need to drizzle with a nice olive oil, then sprinkle on the spices.  I used, salt, cracked black pepper, cumin, and red pepper flakes.

Lay them out flat on a large baking sheet.  Bake them in a 450 degree preheated oven for about 15 min.  Then turn them over to brown on the other side and cook for another 10 min. 

All done!  Spicy Oven Baked Steak Fries....Smokin"!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Wash and peel potatoes.  Slice potatoes in half and then in to planks.  Slice each plank in to medium or large steak fry wedges. 

Drizzle olive oil over potatoes.  Sprinkle with all seasoning, tossing to cover.  Place potatoes flat on a large baking pan.  Cook for 15 min.  Take out and turn over to brown the other side.  Return to oven and bake another 10 min. or until golden brown.  Serve warm.
