Baked French Fries

Baked French Fries

2  medium baking potatoes, scrubbed, leave peels on
2 teaspoon melted butter or olive oil (I used the oil)
Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/4 thick slices,
then cut slices into fry-shaped sticks.

Pour butter or oil into bowl and add potato slices.
Toss to coat.

Spread on baking sheet.
Bake 20 minutes, then turn potatoes and bake until crisp, 
about 30 minutes. After turning it only took my oven another 15 minutes.
While still warm season with salt.

Ken and I both thought these fries were very good, better than out and almost half the calories.
The recipe was created by Chris Thayer, 14 years old.

Variations:
Sweet Potato Fries - substitute sweet potatoes for the baking potatoes.
Spicy French Fires - Stir 1/4 teaspoon EACH cayenne pepper and chili powder into butter or oil before tossing with potatoes.

Enjoy your fries.

    Well done Chris.

    Your fries look good Karen.
    Celeriac could also be used as a variation …

    All the best Jan
