I love russet potatoes! So I guess its no surprise that Wendy's uses russets for their fries.
Oh so versatile, they're great baked, mashed, fried or roasted with an earthy, mild flavor. Sliced into wedges, they always crisp up for me in the oven the perfect golden brown. If you're looking to bake, the russet is your potato. Don't forget the sour cream and chives!
