Here’s an easy recipe for homemade fries. They’re lower in fat and calories since they’re baked and not fried. Enjoy!
Homemade French Fries
2 large or 3-4 medium organic potatoes (I use Russet or Yukon Gold)
1-2 tbsp canola oil (if you’re watching calories, just use 1 tbsp)
1 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wash and dry potatoes. Don’t peel them but do cut out any bad spots. Cut potatoes into fries. Place on a cookie sheet (with sides) that is lined with nonstick foil (or line with regular foil and lightly coat with cooking spray). Place potatoes on cookie sheet. Drizzle oil over potatoes. Sprinkle with chili powder and salt to taste. Use your hands to toss the potatoes with the oil and seasonings so that potatoes are evenly coated. Place in oven and let cook for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and turn potatoes with a heat-proof spatula. Spray potatoes lightly with nonstick cooking spray (this will create a browner, crispier crust). Bake 5-10 minutes more or until potatoes are tender. Makes enough for 2 or 3 people.
Note: I make these in my toaster oven using the broiler tray. It speed ups the preheat time and the fries cook a little faster.
