Barbecue Fries

I got this recipe from Jennie’s blog.  Good flavor and easy, although next time I think I will cut down on the oil.  Great twist on fries, and good with sour cream!

here’s another recipe i tried tonight. it was tasty, but again, not something i’d make every day. and there’s probably a healthier way to do it.

Barbecue Fries

5 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
2 pounds russet or baking potatoes (3 potatoes), scrubbed

Heat oven to 450° F. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the oil onto a rimmed baking sheet.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining oil, the barbecue sauce, hot pepper sauce, black pepper, and paprika and cumin (if using).

Cut each potato lengthwise into 8 to 10 wedges. Add them to the bowl and toss. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared sheet. Bake, turning once, until golden and tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot with sour cream for dipping (if desired).

Yield: Makes 4 servings
