If I had to pick my one weakness when it comes to food, I would have to be French Fries.   I just adore them, could eat them everyday.  I love both regular and sweet potato equally.  I have a hard time not ordering them at restaurants; I can sometimes refrain if I have made oven fries during the week. They are a great alternative, and so much better for you.

It has taken me a while to get the perfect oven fry.  Two key things, you need to use Russet Baking potatoes.  Second, you need to pre-cut and soak the potatoes in cold water ahead of time.  I usually soak them anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The result is a perfect crispy french fry…delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Russet Baking Potatoes
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

Equipment

  • 1 bowl
  • French fry cutter, or good knife
  • 2 Kitchen towels
  • baking sheet

First Cut the potatoes into match sticks either using a French Fry cutter or a sharp knife.

Place them in a bowl and cover with cold water.  Let them soak for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Pre-heat your oven to 450. Drain the potatoes and lay them out a kitchen towel.  Place another towel over the potatoes and dry them well.

Place them back in a bowl and coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Lay them out on a baking sheet (coated with cooking spray) in a single layer.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping them over half way through.

These would be good with any variety of spices…Garlic, Cajun, parmesan cheese. Go Crazy! They are guilt free :-)

Enjoy!!
