Oven-Roasted French fries

  When you don’t have a deep-fryer or don’t feel like dealing with the mess of all that oil, this is the method to go with.  If you don’t like your fries crispy just cut them a little thicker than what is described here.

France and Belgium both claim to have invented "French fries."
