Would you like fries with that?

Oven Roasted Potatoes are a good thing. We were in a lazy mood for lunch the other day, neither my husband nor I felt much like cooking anything. I always keep veggie burgers in the freezer, and all kinds of flavours like regular and black bean too. So I figured we'd jazz up the meal with some oven roasted 'fries'. It was somewhat of an experiment as I had never made these before.

The cooking time was approximately 30 minutes. So this isn't a quick dish, but it still fits in with the Rachel Ray 30 minute meal format!

Oven Roasted Fries
1 large potato cut into wedges, olive oil, oregano, basil, salt, black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 450 C.
2. Coat the potatoes with the oil and spices.
3. Lay them flat on a baking sheet with cooking spray.
4. Bake on the top rack for 30 minutes. (I did not need to flip them actually.)

Verdict: These were best eaten hot out of the oven! Have the burgers ready and then pull these out and toss onto the plate ready to eat. My husband ate most of them right off the baking tray. I ate them even when they were cold.
