old- fashioned steak fries

these fries are melt in your mouth yummy. they are crispy on the outside and soft and potatoey inside. (soft and potatoey is the best i could do. throws me back to a beverly cleary book from my pre-teen years that had such an amazing description of the way fries taste that it still has not left me.) serve with fry sauce, ketchup or ranch. fab with a bbq beef sandwich.

old- fashioned steak fries
an original recipe by rachelle

4 baking potatoes, scrubbed well
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

preheat oven to 450 degrees. halve potatoes lengthwise and then cut into steak fry sized slices. leave those skins on! if you've got mahusive potatoes, you may halve them again. but i like the idea of a mahusive fry. toss the potatoes in a ziptop bag and dump in the oil, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. smoosh it all together and dump out on a cookie sheet. roast for 25 minutes: roast ten minutes, turn over the fries and bake about fifteen minutes more.
