A pretty simple, always delicious recipe for a cold Saturday night. The trick is in the beauty of the creamy sweet Wisconsin Russet Potato. This russet produces lovely, crispy fries that are soft inside and taste even better when watching high school hockey state tournaments!
Crispy Cottage Fries
6-7 Wisconsin White Russet Potatoes
1/2 – 1 stick salted butter, or vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Scrub the potatoes clean with steel wool. Cut in wedges about 1/4 inch thick and place into mixing bowl. Melt butter and pour to taste over cut potatoes, add salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and onion powder to taste and toss well.
Spread sparingly on large ungreased sheet pans (may use parchment paper) and place in hot oven. Let potatoes roast for 30-45 min., or until the bottom of the potatoes brown. Turn potatoes and contue roasting until crisp on the outside, and soft inside. Serve.
