Recipes: Oven Baked French Fries

 
I love French fries. I ate a lot of fast food growing up so fries have become one of those foods that actually makes me nostalgic. Anyone else have a birthday party at McDonald’s as a kid? I did. I don’t think they do that anymore so I probably just dated myself. Even in high school, we would actually make our own fries at home. Cut the potatoes and deep fry them in vegetable oil while talking to friends on the phone or listening to music.

I still need to get my fry fix so I decided alter that deep frying part by baking them instead. Here a recipe for oven baked fries I found on the Weight Watchers website.

Ingredients
  1. 2 Large Russet Potatos
  2. 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  3. 1 tsp Black Pepper
  4. 1 tbsp Garlic Salt with Parsley or to taste (I like things a little salty, but you should alter to your taste.)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash potatoes and dry. I generally leave the skin on but you can certainly peel the potato at this point. Cut the potato into 1/4-inch size pieces and rinse. Drain potatoes and pat dry. Pour olive oil into bowl and place dried potatoes inside. Coat well. Mix seasoning with potatoes. Place fries on baking sheet in a single layer and pop in the oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes then flip fries. Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes.
Notes
  1. My recipe is based on one I found on the WW website but I have come across other recipes that advise soaking potatoes for 30 minutes in cold water after cutting them. I did not do this but may try it next time. I also turned on the broiler for the last minute.

  1. I also love french fries as does my family! Sometimes they don’t get as crispy as deep fried. But I bet the broiler and the end really helps! Thanks for the tip!

    1. Yep the broiler does go a long way towards crisping them up.

    1. They are so much healthier and still manage to satisfy my fry love.

  2. I’d love to safe this to a pin board on Pinterest! Looks absolutely yummy! But there is no Pinterest button to share it.

    1. Thanks for letting me know about the pinterest button. I’ve updated that.
