Whose Fries?

Emeril's, that's who!
<Well, that's what we call them at our house, anyways.>

These are easy as pie, and so delicious.
They're a little spicy too,
depending on how crazy you go with the spices.

I don't recommend slices. They end up whimpy. Wedges are meatier.

Here's what you need:

Some of your favorite potatoes, wedged
Emeril's Original Essence - several good shakes
oil - only about 1 Tablespoon
gallon-sized zip bag 

* Cut extra-large potatoes in half cross-wise, and then wedge the halves.  
* Don't make your wedges too thick.  That means extra baking time!
* Though I usually make the wedges, I tried slices (pictured here), and they end up whimpy.  Wedges are meatier and much more enjoyable!
* Don't use too much oil.  It just makes a mess in your oven! 

Place potato wedges in gallon zip-bag.  Add 1 T. oil.  Seal bag, and squish potatoes around to coat with the oil.  Then, add a few shakes of Emeril's Original Essence (available at your local grocery store in the spice aisle).  Zip bag and squish again to coat potatoes with spices. Here's the critical point.  Open the bag.  Do you love the smell?  Do you like things spicy? Now's the time to decide if you need more spices...decisions, decisions!  If you add more spices, squish the potatoes around again. You get the drill.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet or stone.
Move around so that they're only in a single layer.
Bake at 450 for 25 minutes.

And... end up with this yumminess!
As Emeril would say: "BAM!"
