Baked French Fries

Okay so I am home from my first day back at bootcamp in quite sometime and I am  feeling super great.  This means I have alot of energy and even have time for a “project”.  I head to Pinterest and oh boy did I find something cool!  I wish I could take credit for this recipe and the idea, however I tagged it from a recipe courtesy of My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness by Gwyneth Paltrow

They are “No-Fry Fries“….yep, that is correct.  The picture alone looked soooo yummy I had to pull the recipe up.  Three ingredients, that was it.  Super simple and super healthy, no added anything, better yet – NO FRYING!  What?  I have all of these in the house, how can I NOT make these?

  • 2large russet potatoes (2/3 lb each), peeled
  • 2tablespoonsolive oil
  • 3/4teaspooncoarse sea salt
  • *NOTE* I did add fresh garlic cloves to my recipe *
Heat oven to 450°. Cut potatoes in half horizontally; cut each half into 1/3-inch-thick fries and place in a bowl of cold water. Remove from water and dry thoroughly. Toss with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place fries on a cookie sheet. Roast until browned and cooked through, turning occasionally, 25 minutes.

I happen to have fresh garlic in the fridge, so thought “heck why not”?  Just add cloves to your food processor with EVOO and pulse enough to desired size.  I added the mixture to the dried off potatoes in a bowl and just folded and mixed with my hands to cover all of them.

Thank you to Gwyneth and Pinterest for the great idea.  Now I sure hope the kids like them:)  I will never had fries ever again any other way.  What do you think?  Let me know.  Have you tried these OR made them yourself?
