Oven Fries

I've said it before and I'll say it again... we are food network junkies. A favorite is Jeff Mauro sandwich king extraordinaire--AKA Season 7 winner of Food Network Star! 

Well we love love making oven fries and apparently so does Jeff! Usually our fries are pretty dang good but with the help of our beloved Sandwich King these were the best yet! The trick is to cook them covered for 10 minutes, uncovered for 10 minutes, then flip and cook for the final 10 minutes. The result is crispy oven fries that are cooked through to perfection!
