Oven-baked French Fries

This is an easy way to make homemade French fries that are delicious and much healthier than the traditional deep fat fried ones.  You will never miss the extra calories!

Oven Fries
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Cut potatoes into fries, as large or small as you like (peeled or unpeeled)
  • Put the fries in a plastic bag and add some olive oil (about 1 1/2 teaspoon for one potato)
  • Shake well until the fries are coated with oil
  • Pour onto cookie sheet, forming a single layer
  • Roast for 10-15 minutes, then stir, turning the fries to their other side
  • Roast for an additional 10-15 minutes or until browned. 

 I like to add some minced garlic along with the olive oil, and sometimes also add some rosemary. Be sure the fries aren’t crowded and are in a single layer.  After they come out of the oven, sprinkle with salt and/or other seasonings as desired. To make them browner and crispier than you see in the picture, roast them a little longer. You can also do this with sweet potatoes.
