What's For Dinner Wednesday: Oven Baked Fries

My husband has simple taste. He likes his burgers and he likes his french fries. I like him to be thin and diabetes-free. Enter the bison burger and oven baked french fries.

These faux french fries are one of my favorite sides to serve with burgers and sandwiches. They are crispy and flavorful, but are not deep fried-- or fried at all, actually.  Another tip to make them even healthier for you: Swap in sweet potatoes for regular potatoes. In my opinion, the sweet potato fries even taste better!

  • 1 large or 2 small baking potatoes
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Wash and dry the potato(es) and slice into "fries."  I like to leave the skins on and then cut them to be about 1/2 inch around.  Add potato strips to a large bowl and drizzle in the olive oil. Add garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.  Stir well to combine and make sure all fries are evenly coated.

Spread out fries on a large baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes or until fork tender.  Turn on the broiler and broil the fries for an additional 4-5 minutes or until they become golden and crispy on the outside.

Serve warm with the dipping sauce of your choice.
