Smoky Oven Fries

These Smoky Oven Fries are delightfully crispy and have a hint of smokiness from the smoked paprika.  Easy and delicious!

2 1/2 lb russet potatoes
Olive oil
Garlic powder,  to taste
Onion powder, to taste
Smoked paprika, to taste
Salt & pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Slice the potatoes into very thin matchsticks.  Spread them out on a sheet pan. Drizzle them generously with olive oil.  Sprinkle on the seasonings to taste.  Toss them around with your hands to coat and spread them back out in an even layer.  I probably used about 1 tablespoon of each seasoning and salt and pepper on mine. The more smoked paprika you use, the smokier the taste.  Bake the fries in 15 minute increments, turning them and spreading them out every 15 minutes, until they are as crispy as you want them, about 40-45 minutes.
