Red tater oven fries?

I want to make oven fries tonight but only have red potatoes. Anyone have any suggestions? Do you think it'll work or am I better off just making roasted taters?

I'd roast them. Toss with oil and rosemary and minced garlic, salt and pepper. Roast at 425F

Thanks. Perfect timing too. I just washed them off and had to make that crucial decision!

What are oven fries? I was assuming they were just roasted potatoes?

I made them with red onion, parsley, fresh chives, fresh ground pepper, seasoning salt, oil and lemon juice. I can't wait!

Usually they are baking taters cut into strips (like fries), seasoned and baked.
