Oven Baked French Fries

Like most people, I love french fries. But, also like most people, I don't enjoy the variety of things fried food does to my body. Namely, make me fat. I don't like that. It's annoying. So, on the average, I do my best to prepare food a touch healthier. These rate as a touch healthier on the french fry spectrum, in my opinion.

Compliments of Bon Appetit magazine:

Oven Baked French Fries

Nonstick vegetable oil spray
2 pounds unpeeled russet potatoes (about 3 large), scrubbed, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick sticks
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse kosher salt

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Spray large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Toss potatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper in large bowl. Transfer to prepared sheet, spreading in single layer. Place in top third of oven and bake until golden, occasionally turning with spatula, about 40 minutes. Season to taste with coarse salt and serve.

I love this meal! You are making me hungry and I have just eaten a big dinner too!

Oven-baked fries -- it's been too long since I've had me some fries. Time to make some I suppose. So now it's your fault if I get fat. ;)

Yup, I'm a fry lover here to! Anything that can enable me to have them more often is highly appealing. I think I'll have to get some russets this weekend!
