When I was young my Dad went through a phase where it seemed we deep fried just about everything, chicken cordon bleu, corn dogs, homemade doughnuts and french fries were common. One of my favorite way to have potatoes was for my dad to slice the potato into circles and fry them up! To this day it is one of my favorite ways to have potatoes. I of course do not fry too many foods now days but that does not mean we don't want potato wedges and chips (as my dad called them.) You can make some great crispy potatoes in the oven on a pizza stone!

Ingredients:
2 russet potatos (sliced into wedges or circles)
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp parsley
1/8 tsp Cayenne Chile powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
2 pinches of red pepper
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Put pizza stone into oven and preheat oven and stone to 400 degrees.

Put all ingredients in a seal able Tupperware container and shake till mixed well. Place potato slices or wedges directly on the heated pizza stone and cook 15-17 minutes. Using a spatula flip all potatoes over and cook for an additional 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot with pepper ketchup (mix 1/4 tsp fresh crack pepper for ever 1 tbsp ketchup.)

  2. Ah that's what I'm talking about! As a reader I thank you for adding personal story behind the dish =) Now I perceive the dish differently, it's more Frand. Oh and I love potato - fried? Once I promised I could live on it for weeks to mi mama. Baking is a good method so there's less oil yay =)
