French fries are my weakness. Okay well any type of potato. When I am in town, a guilty pleasure of mine is a quick trip through Sonic or McDonald’s for a large fry. Just that nothing else. I have made fries at home but what a hassle for me. Large amounts of cooking oil and a stove top cleanup from hell. This is a great tasting and healthier alternative to frying. My husband loves these.
- 4 medium Potatoes, washed but with peels on, cut into 1/2 strips
- 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
- Sea Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 425 F. While the oven is heating soak the potato strips in water for 15 minutes. Rinse and dry the strips. Spray a rimmed cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Put the EVOO in large shallow bowl and add the potato strips. Stir well to coat with EVOO. Turn out onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn all the strips over and bake an additional 10 minutes. These get so crispy! I eat them with mayonnaise. Olive Oil mayo, of course!
Hooray for crispy oven fries with mayo! My family constantly heckles me over dipping my fries in mayonnaise, but I knew I couldn’t be the only one!
LOL!! Absolutely, Corrie. It’s gotta be mayo!
