Homemade Fries

10 Jun

Baked, not fried, baby. The healthy journey continues here in our household. The other night we had delicious chipotle turkey burgers and I couldn’t enjoy it without fries. So, I made some. No oil needed.

I used:

2 giant russet potatoes, skin on and cut into 1/4-inch sticks

Canola oil spray (or nonstick spray)

Salt-free seasoning of your choice – I used McCormick’s Garlic & Herb Seasoning, which I can’t get enough of

Bowl of ice water

Here we go:

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Cut your potatoes into whatever shape you’d like, but be sure to submerge them in ice cold water to keep them from oxidizing.

4. Spread them out on a parchment-lined baking sheet, spray with oil, and season.

6. Pull them out and serve with your favorite meal or dipping sauce! We enjoyed them with our burgers and chipotle mayo.
