Yum! Fries from the Oven

Sometimes I just need that crunch, but I don't need the fat. So here is how I make oven fries:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Peel as many potatoes as you feel like eating, but no more than can be spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Rinse and slice into french fry shapes or round slices, whatever you like. Spray a cookie sheet with spray oil mix, or line with parchment. Pile the sliced potatoes in the middle and sprinkle generously with a seasoning mixture of your choice. Mix it up with your hands and spread the slices in a single layer.

Place in oven and cook for 20-30 minutes, depending on how thick the slices are. Turn the slices after about 10 minutes and again after 20, or as needed. You'll know they are done when the edges are browned and the slices have puffed up a bit. Remove from oven and place in bowl or plate. Salt to taste and eat right away!
