Serves: 2french fries

Ingredients

  • 1 large Potato
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley

  1. Preheat oven to 425˚.
  2. Before cutting potato, rinse well under water. From there, cut the ends off the potato, stand up on end, and cut slices from the potato that are 1/4\” thick (depending on how thick you want your fries- cut accordingly) Take slices and cut fries out of the potato-using 1/4 ” as the measurement.
  3. Once all fries are cut, place in medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients, tossing until every piece is covered. Spread out onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes, flip the fries, and bake for a remaining 10-15 until fries are crispy (35-45 minutes total.) Make sure to not over crowed the pan- this may result in uneven baking.
