What's Cookin' -- Oven Fries

I have been trying to perfect this one for a long time. Either the fries burn or take forever to bake. Either way they just never really taste that great. Here's what I did that made them taste good and actually like french fries. Recipe is adapted from here. I also took the idea from my baked potatoes to microwave the potatoes first in order to cut down on time and burning. And it seemed to work pretty well!

Oven Fries
3 Baking potatoes
1/2 TbspVegetable oil
Onion powder
Garlic Powder
Spices are to taste, I probably used about 1/8 tsp to 1/4 tsp of each.

1. Don't peel potatoes. Cut in 1/2 inch length-wise pieces. Try to cut them all around the same size.
2. Place fries on microwave safe plate and lay flat on plate. Microwave for 5 - 6 minutes.
3. Mix oil, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder together in baking dish (I use a white Corelle casserole dish).
4. After fries are softened in microwave, mix with oil and spices.
5. Put in 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. They will be soft fries, not very crispy.
