New Meal Fridays #53 - Healthy homemade French Fries

Made:Sept 15th 2011
From: Internet Recipe

5 Large Roasting Potatoes
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Begin with some nice roasting potatoes as shown here. While you’re doing that – lets preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Then Peel and Wash the potatoes to prepare for slicing.

Slice however you wish. Once sliced, place the potatoes in a bowl and cover with water. **creators note - I like to have the potatoes soak in salted water for about 30 minutes to release some of the starch and allow the fries to crisp up in the oven. **

After the 30 minutes elapsed – it is time we dry the potatoes. This is a crucial step. If the potatoes are not completely dry, they will not crisp up as nicely and the moisture will cause them to steam in the oven.

Lets go ahead and lay the potatoes on some parchment paper, season them with salt and pepper and brush some olive oil on the tops of them. Once in the oven, ensure that you turn them periodically to ensure even browning. Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Miranda's Mix Ups: I used whatever potatoes we had in the house. And I have nothing fancy to cut mine with but here's how they turned out. SOO yummy
