Baked French Fries


Back again with another “healthy” recipe. Hey, it’s not the best for you but it sure is better than some other methods of making these. If you saw yesterday’s post, you noticed that there were french fries sitting pleasantly next to the burgers. Today I will teach you how to make them!

One of the spices I love using on potatoes is old bay. I have met a lot of people who have never heard of this, so it must be a mid-atlantic thing. Either way it’s awesome and can be used on all sorts of foods. Do yourself a favor and get some.

You’ll need:

  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon old bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Step 1: 
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2:
Wash and peel the potatoes.

Step 3:
Slice the potatoes into even slivers. I cut them between 1/4-1/2in each. Then flip them the other way and cut again into fries, about the same thickness. Note – the thinner you cut them, the shorter amount of time they will need to cook.

Step 4:
Combine the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and coat the fries in this mixture. You can add more/fewer/different spices depending on your preference.

Step 5:
Spread the fries onto a greased sheet. I added some extra old bay on about half for extra flavor. img_6547

Step 6: 
Bake for 40-45 minutes, flipping at least once halfway.

Either way, indulge and gimme some oven lovin’.
