"This is my father's recipe for potatoes that were served aboard the battleship USS New York during WWII. This recipe is simple, but very tasty."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

potatoes, peeled and quartered lengthwise
butter, divided, or more as needed
all purpose flour
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Recipe is what it says a french fry potato with a slight "buttery crunchy coating." I followed the ingredients minus the black pepper. I cut the potatoes each into 8-10 potato wedges, and they did still take the full 40 minutes. And, I baked them on a foil lined sheet. I did half the recipe and it fit the whole baking sheet. I would say the full recipe would be more like 6 servings though. Interesting recipe! And, I wonder if my grandpa ate a french fry like these in the the Navy in WWII? Happy Veterans's Day though! And, thank you to all who have served this country.
Very easy and surprisingly good. I added a bit of cajun spice to the flour and it worked really well.
Very good potato wedges! I used seasoned salt and added onion powder & garlic powder. 400 degrees for 40 mins flipping half way through.
These are really good fries! I add other seasonings to the flour though, such as cajun seasoning, season salt, etc.
Really good! I added an all purpose spice to the flour as other reviewers have and I did find my cookie sheet warped a bit during the cooking and some of the butter browned and the fries got pretty dark but DH preferred those so I guess it all worked out. Just keep a close eye out as the butter can burn before you know it.
