Oven "Fries"

May/June 1993

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (177 votes)

Coated with olive oil and baked in a hot oven, these fries are soft and buttery inside and crisp on the outside—the perfect combination.

I nuke the potatoes for a minute or two to "parcook" them, then into the oven to finish - cuts oven time down to about five minutes!

To make it neat, I put a bit of oil in a lightweight zipperlock bag, and sprinkle in my spices (use your imagination - lots of fun here!), and "mush it around" to mix it all up ... then dump in the potatoes, blow some air into the bag and seal it - then shake well to evenly coat the potatoes. When done and the potatoes are on a rack in the oven, just throw away the "mess"!

I use Mrs Dash spices on it - no salt added -- makes them even healthier & tastier, in my opinion!!

Better to put the salt after , the fries will taste full and more crispy !

Altough, I bet it tastes good, the butter and shortening used by Anonymous 9/16, make this a MUCH less healthy choice.

I have also been making something similar for years. I use red potatos, olive oil, garlic and rosemary. I cut my potatos into bit sized chunks and toss the ingredients on them. They are wonderful.

I have also used sweetpotatos (I leave the rosemary off). My family loves them, I can never make enough.
