Homemade Seasoned Oven Fries

I used to always buy frozen fries to bake at home, not realizing how simple (not to mention so much healthier!) it was to make my own from scratch. I originally got the recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook, but have tweaked it some.

 Dinner tonight. I'd been craving a burger for days. It was so delicious!

1 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt)
1/2 teaspoon Sucanat (sugar would work, though)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
a dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
shredded cheese (optional)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3-4 potatoes, cut into wedges (I usually cut each potato into 8 wedges)

Put the potato wedges in a bowl, and pour some olive oil in, making sure to coat the potatoes. Mix the seasonings together and add them to the potatoes. Spread potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake at 425* for 25-30 minutes. Sometimes, I broil them for a minute or two to crisp them up a little better before we eat.

This recipe literally takes less than 15 minutes to throw together, and even using organic potatoes, it costs just a little over $1 to make enough for our family. I love making a healthier version of something we love for so cheap!
