Sunday night, dad made some burgers and I thought, What goes great with burgers? FRIES!. So I headed over to my favorite cooking blog and found this fabulous recipe for Oven Baked Fries.
I was pumped. These bad boys looked fabulous and I'd trust Joy with my life. I talked about her before here in a previous post. I sliced my potatoes, preheated my oven, added some evoo to my pan and my fries and but them in the oven. After ten minutes I took the pan out of the oven to stir the potatoes as the recipe suggested and they didn't move. Yeah, they were stuck to the pan. I was livid. I was trying to make fries not mashed potatoes!!!! Was Joy lying to me? I could have sworn she and I were friends. But, after 30 minutes, no crunch.
Just when I thought I was going to have to stop following Joy the Baker and her blog, I decided to turn on the broiler and BAM! Those fries were fabulous and crunchy. She added herbs de provence but I had none so I made my own after researching what it was. It was delicious. Cut the potatoes as thin as Joy says to! I think that's why my fries didn't turn out as I'd hoped.
