Spicy Steak Fries

I'm going to go ahead and admit that I've made this recipe more times than necessary, under the guise of "perfecting the spice blend", only because these are seriously tasty. As I mentioned in the last post, I'm a huge fan of salty snacks, and fries are no exception.

This is a great recipe to have on hand for a pretty easy side dish. (and not a meal, as it may or may not have been for me at one point this past week) Although it does require some time in the oven, most of the time is non-active, so you can easily be making the rest of the meal in the meantime.

I guarantee that you'll be making this recipe again and again - it's just that good!

Spicy Steak Fries

Spicy Steak Fries
Serves 2-4

2 large russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp Old Bay
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut potatoes into steak fry wedges. In the microwave, melt butter in a small dish. Whisk in olive oil, garlic, and remaining spices. Toss wedges in butter mixture and spread into 9x13" baking dish. Place into preheated oven. Allow to roast for 15 minutes, then toss. Continue to toss every 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are crispy and brown. (this took about 45 minutes for me). Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.

These sound wonderful. It would be so cool if you could please label your posts for easy searching. Like these could be simply be Steak Fries. In my reader it all comes up No Title. Thank you for sharing though, wonderful ideas, and appreciated.

nice! i think the additional spices will make the potatoes a bigger hit than they already are!
