Oven Fries and Utah Fry Sauce

Alright, to those of you who may think that my present chubbiness is due to the following recipe, you are mistaken.  I rarely indulge.  However, when I am in the mood for "junk" food, these Oven Fries are a lower calorie version.

  • 2 russet potatoes, cut in 1/2 lengthwise, halves cut lengthwise into fourths to make 16 big, fat wedges
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Preheat a baking sheet in the hot oven for at least 5 minutes.
While the baking sheet is heating, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, garlic, dried parsely and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Then dump the potatoes out onto a baking sheet, spreading to a single layer. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, shaking the pan every now and then, until the potatoes are cooked through, brown and crispy.

Now for the finishing touch, a truly Utahn condiment:  Fry Sauce.

  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce of your choice
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • cayenne pepper to taste
Mix all the above ingredients together and you are done.  Now, dip your oven fries into the fry sauce and see if you never want to use just ketchup again!

If you haven't entered my GIVEAWAY yet, you have until midnight tonight to do it.  The instructions are HERE.

Have a great day!
