"Great snack or side dish to a healthy (baked not fried) meal. First time I made these, it was sort of an experiment; but apparently it was a successful one, because these fries disappeared in no time! Perfect on their own or with your favorite potato dip. Can be made on the grill as well and make a great side for a summer barbecue!" — HottKoko81

olive oil cooking spray
chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons
dried thyme leaves
dried oregano leaves
cracked black pepper
You don't have to use fresh rosemary. I actually submitted the recipe with dried rosemary leaves. You may find that you like using dehydrated minced garlic instead of garlic powder, or a half teaspoon of each. Also, I find it easiest to put the wedges in a bowl after they've baked, sprinkle them with the seasoning and toss until coated. Enjoy!
I made this recipe because I like the quickness of it since the potatoes go into the microwave to give them a head start. I didn't like putting the seasonings on at the end of baking. Most didn't stick well and I had a huge amount left over after sprinkling. There's another baked fries recipe on this site that I usually use that I'll be sticking with instead. Won't be making this one again.
Simplicity at its best. While I'm sure these baked fries would be wonderful using the listed dried herbs, my garden is abundantly full, so I chose to mince fresh instead ~ rosemary, thyme, parsley, oregano, basil, sage and dill. Finishing the dish with a light sprinkling of salt, pepper and garlic powder made these fries sublime. Many thanks to HottKoko81 for the submission.
my wife loved these for lunch! thx for the recipe!
I made a few changes and it was AWESOME. I didn't have any cooking spray, so I used olive oil on parchment paper and recoated the potatoes with more olive oil. I also didn't have garlic powder, so I used fresh garlic. I didn't want to eat the garlic raw, so after the 22 min of cooking time suggested, I put the herbs and galic on potatoes and broiled them (they were not crispy yet because I used more then 4 potatoes). They were so good, I will make these again for sure!
We were looking for some baked fries and these ones hit the spot.
These were delicious! I only had large baking potatoes so I used those which made the fries a little large, but still tasty (cooked a little longer in the microwave and in the oven to make up for the size). My kids didn't love all the herbs but it would be easy enough just to leave theirs plain next time. I love all the mix of flavors and will be making them again for sure!
Very good recipe. I made this as a side for our Easter dinner and it was a great substitute to mashed potatoes. I think I may have liked a bit more garlic, but that's a matter of personal taste!
