Easy Home-Style Fries

***There are some side dishes that you don't need to fool with too much...they are always good and non-fussy to make. French fries are certainly a good example. This recipe from Cuisine at Home magazine is very easy, but the fries have a wonderful taste. They are perfectly soft on the inside (thanks to the parboiling), with a crunchy exterior.

I added a sprinkling of Lawry's Seasoned Salt to finish these off. Of course, they would go perfectly with a juicy steak or a scrumptious cheeseburger...and many, many other dishes too! French fries are hardly ever glamorous, but they sure are tasty every once in a while!***

1 1/2 lbs. russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. dried thyme
Lawry's Seasoned Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Parboil potatoes 5 minutes in 3 quarts of boiling salted water; drain well.

Heat oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and saute 5 minutes without stirring. Stir and cook another 7 minutes, until golden.

Season with thyme, Lawry's Seasoned Salt, and pepper.
