Yes, you can make these at home! Our easy baked fries come out crispy, delicious, and good for you every time!
The Backstory: Who says fries are off limits? I don’t, especially when they’re baked and the delicious flavor of the potato comes shining through. My recipe for easy baked fries is so easy to make that you’ll never miss the fat and and extra calories of deep-frying your potatoes again. You do need to have a little patience while the liquid is released from the potatoes, but think of this way: you won’t have to clean up a greasy mess from a deep-fryer ever again. I’d say that’s a good deal any day of the week! More of the Backstory after the recipe…
Easy Baked Fries
- 4 medium whole fresh potatoes, julienne sliced *
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 2 tbsp. canola oil
Place sliced potatoes in a colander and sprinkle with sugar. Set aside until liquid is released from potatoes, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain liquid and dry potatoes well.
Place sliced potatoes in a bowl and toss with salt and oil.
Spread potatoes in a single layer onto a non-stick or regular baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes; flip fries and continue baking about 15-20 minutes more, until crisp and browned.
