4-5 medium russet potatoes, washed scrubbed and eyes removed
Sea salt grinder
Canola or olive oil non-stick spray
2-3 Tbsp. Olive oil
1/2 tsp. Seasoned salt
1-1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
To make baked potatoes: Preheat oven or gas grill to 350 degrees F.
Using a fork, poke several holes all around each potato. Sprinkle grounded sea salt on each potato and wrap completely with aluminum foil. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Unwrap potatoes and allow to completely cool or store in covered container in the refrigerator, until ready to use. Cut potato in lengthwise quarters and then into thick strips (varying from about 1/4 – 1/2″ thick).
Preset oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and lay potato strips, potato side down, onto baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle seasoned salt, paprika, onion and garlic powders on top. Put into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, turning the fries on the other side half-way through baking. Remove from oven and serve immediately with your favorite sandwich, hamburger or as alone as an appetizer with ketchup for dipping…enjoy!
Karen’s Note: I made this twice for my family now from my husband Frank’s Baked Potatoes on his grill and it was a hit and goes great with fish sandwiches or Barbecued Frank-Burgers.
