Cubed Oven Potato "Fries"

We don't make french fries often (mostly because it's a pain! I hate cleaning up after deep frying!) but when I get a hankering for potatoey goodness, I love to make these (we usually have them at least twice a week!) They're so simple, so tasty, and no questionable ingredients. Definitely a winner in our house!

Note: this recipe makes enough for two adults and five hungry kids who LOVE these; if you have fewer people in your house, you might want to make a half batch.

Cubed Oven Potatoes
2 pounds potatoes, washed and cut into cubes
1/4 cup melted butter or olive oil
1 tsp salt
You can do this two ways: put all three ingredients in a bowl with a cover and shake it up, so the potatoes are well coated, then spread them out on the cookie sheet, or just spread the potatoes on the cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil or melted butter, and sprinkle with salt. The first method gets better coverage, but the second is faster and makes one less greasy dish to wash!
Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour (until the tops are brown and crispy).

(I like them plain, but my kids like to smother them in homemade ketchup.)
