French fries! Oh how I love thee!! But fried foods, well they left the menu years ago. And those highly processed, high calorie breaded things you buy in the freezer section of the grocery store? Nope.
So I make my own! And they are wonderful!
First take some potatoes. I usually use red or russet.
You can cut up the potatoes on your own, but I use this French fry slicer. It comes in 2 sizes, we are shoestring people.
Once they are sliced up, throw them in a bowl.
Microwave for 5 minutes.
Now pour on some olive oil, sea salt (do not omit these 2 items!) and optional spices like garlic powder and onion powder. Stir it all up.
Now spread them on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 40-45 minutes at 425 – flipping about 1/2 way through.
Crispy oven baked, healthy fries!
I paired mine tonight with a 99% fat free turkey burger, using romaine lettuce as the “bun” and a huge side of steamed broccoli!
