Fast oven fries

This recipe came about because lately I don't seem to get things done quite as quickly as I used to.
 It turned out working really well though and using less oil so that is always good.  You can use any potatoes you want, baby reds or Yukon's are good and you don't need to peel them just give them a good scrub. Sweet potato fries are good also, you probably just want to cut them a little smaller.
There are no exact times because everyone has different microwaves and your potatoes will be different sizes.

Cut potatoes into wedges, about 8 pieces per potato

Put in an microwavable bowl with some water, it does not need to cover them completely.
Microwave on high for 5- 10 minutes checking and stirring ever few minutes.
This step helps speed up the cooking but also kind of seals in the starch so you don't have to use tons of oil and so they don't stick to the pan.

Turn oven on to 425
Drain potatoes and toss with 1 T oil
Sprinkle with salt and pepper or desired seasoning
Bake for 15 minutes then turn over
Finish baking until potatoes are cooked through and are as crunchy as you like
