The best oven fries!!

I love to cook, although tending two little ones under 2 some times makes it difficult!! My sis told me about these yummy burgers you can buy at Walmart. They are in the frozen meat section. They have bacon and cheddar mixed in them. I took out the garbage already but I think they were called black angus bacon and aged cheddar burgers. They come 6 in a box and you cook them from frozen. They are about 6 or 7 bucks at my Walmart. Very good and they are easy!! I wanted oven fries with my burger, and I had pinned a method on Pinterest that I pinned. You take 3 or 4 potatoes peeled. Slice them into wedges about the size of your ring finger. Soak them in Hot water for 10 to 20 min. Heat the oven to 475 F. Meanwhile line a baking sheet with foil, using a pastry brush or even some paper towels, liberally oil the pan with about 3 to 4 TBS of canola oil. Sprinkle the oiled pan with Sea salt, pepper and what ever other seasonings you like. I added paprika. Dry the potatoes well and toss them in a bowl with about 2 TBS of oil. Place them on baking sheet in a single layer. Cover the sheet with foil, or if you used it all to line the sheet( I did), with another baking sheet. Cook for 5 minutes and then uncover. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, turn them with tongs or a spatula, and bake 10 to 15 more till golden brown, Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with just a little more seasoning. They taste like you deep fried them but you don't use as much oil. I doubt they are any healthier, but less messy for sure!!
