When making your own fries at home, you know exactly what is in them and putting them in the oven eliminates tons of the fat that you get from deep frying.
You start with a basic oven baked steak fries recipe and then start experimenting with the toppings and flavors that you love.
This Loaded Baked Steak Fries Recipe is one of my experiments. I am kind of addicted to loaded baked potatoes and my boys are huge steak fry fans. So, I thought, “why not combine the two?”
The kids LOVED these and so did I. I am sure your family will as well. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Cut the potatoes into 1/4 inch thick matchsticks
In a large bowl (or ziploc) toss the potatoes with the oil, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Prep a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the potatoes in a single layer
