These scrumptious, addicting french fries are easy to make and less calories than its fried counterpart. As you can see, someone's hand was in the fries before I could get a proper picture. We can't make enough of these in our house!
- 3-4 cups of potatoes cut into fries
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/8 - 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper*
- 1/2 tsp salt*
- 1/4 - 1/2 tsp chili powder*
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 Tbsp dried parsley
- 2 tsp potato starch
- Place cut up potatoes in a large bowl, fill with water that covers the fries, and let rest for at least 1 hour. This is to remove some of the starch from the potato.
- Meanwhile, mix all the dry ingredients together EXCEPT for the potato starch.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Drain the water off the fries. Dry off fries with paper towel.
- Place the french fries in a gallon ziploc baggie.
- Add potato starch and shake until the fries are well covered.
- Add olive oil. Shake well.
- Add the spice mix and shake until all fries are well coated.
- On a foil lined baking pan that has been lightly coated with cooking spray, place a single layer of french fries.
- Bake for 15 minutes. With a fork turn the fries over. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until cooked through.
* For mild fries use: 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp cayenne, 1/4 tsp chili powder
* For medium fries use: 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp chili powder
* For hot fries use: 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp chili powder (bonus - add 1/4 tsp black pepper)
- I cut my fries with the Progressive International Jumbo Potato Cutter that I ordered from Amazon. I prefer the smaller cut of fries. So, if you are hand cutting your fries you made need to add cooking time per side. Wedges would take longer than thinner cuts.
