Baked Barbecue French Fries


These fries are flavorful, messy, and amazing! We ate them at our recent Wild Wild West dinner as a perfect side to our Hearty Cowboy Burgers!

4 medium potatoes
2-3 Tablespoons oil
3 Tablespoons barbecue sauce (China friends, I used the Heinz brand that’s available at lots of foreign food stores here.)
3/4 teaspoon brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions and Notes:
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the potatoes into french fry shapes, roughly 1/2″ thick and place them in a large bowl. (You can peel the potatoes or leave the skin on, whatever you prefer.)

2. Combine all of the other ingredients in a small saucepan and heat, stirring to combine.

3. Once the sauce mixture is heated and combined, pour it over the sliced potatoes and toss to coat the potatoes.

4. Pour the potatoes and sauce onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper (for easy cleanup). The potatoes should not be too crowded and should be in a single layer more or less. This means you may need to divide them into two batches if you’re working with a small (toaster) oven.

5. Bake the fries at 400 degrees F about 45 minutes or up to an hour until cooked through and browned on the outside.
