I don’t know about you, but I have a SERIOUS weakness when it comes to french fries! I never order them out, but I ALWAYS steal them off my husbands plate (I pretend the calories don’t count that way). My favorite kind of fries are carnival fries…the ones that come in a cup and you pour vinegar and ketchup over top of them…yep, the REAL greasy ones that are just NO good for me!
I have found a way to give into my taste buds AND be nice to my body all at the same time..This is such an easy recipe for oven baked fries. It cuts out the “frying” and doesn’t give you that heavy “I just ate something I shouldn’t have” feeling. My entire family LOVES these!!!
(If you don’t have a slicer, it is okay…I have cut potatoes for years using just a sharp knife)
The slicer I use is the professional multi-chopper @ Williams Sonoma http://www.williams-sonoma.com I received it as a gift, but it is priced reasonably-I use it every day!)
|Slice 5-6 baking potatoes like so..|
|Lay out fries on a baking sheet- if your baking sheets are small, you may need to disperse them on 2 sheets|
|Drizzle with olive oil|
|Sprinkle with Sea Salt (or regular table salt)|
|Bake at 425 for 45 mins (flipping every so often)|
|MMMM!!!! A great side to casual week day dinner
(We had these tonight with turkey and swiss ciabatta sandwiches!)
