Baked "Greasy Spoon" French Fries

Ingredients

5 medium to large-sized russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into half-inch thick wedges
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and black pepper, to taste

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2
Whisk oil, paprika, and garlic powder together in a large plastic bowl with a tight-fitting lid.
3
Toss your potatoes into the bowl. Fit the lid on, and shake it all around until each 'tater is well-coated.
4
Dump everything out onto a large baking sheet (or two, if you don't have enough room), and spread the fries around evenly.
5
Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the fries and bake for another 10-20 minutes, depending on how dark or crisp you want them.
6
Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
