Everyone loves crispy, salty fries. What we don’t love is the oil that it takes to make those “deep-fried” goodies. Here is a recipe that bakes the potatoes using a minimal amount of oil to achieve a crispy finish. All of the flavor with none of the guilt! Try the Sweet Potato variation for a sweet and savory, crispy delight.

Ingredients

 6 medium-sized potatoes or sweet potatoes washed and cut into thin slices (French Fry shaped)
 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
 ½ teaspoon salt
 ½ teaspoon pepper, or to taste
Sweet Potato Variation Ingredients
 2 medium-sized large sweet potatoes washed and cut into thin slices
 1 tablespoon cornstarch
 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
 ¼ teaspoon paprika
 ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  teaspoon black pepper
 ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

Instructions

1

Set oven at 350(degrees) F for Baked Potato Fries and 430(degrees) F for Sweet Potato Fries.

2

Cut the potatoes into thin strips about 1/2 an inch wide, with the skin left on (optional).

3

Place potatoes in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if making baked potato fries. If making sweet potato fries, also add cornstarch, paprika and garlic powder, decreasing pepper to 1/8 teaspoon. Toss.

4

Add oil, decreasing to 1 tablespoon if making the sweet potato variation, and toss again.

5

Place potato slices evenly on parchment-lined baking sheet large enough to ensure potatoes are not on top of each other.

6

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the potatoes after 20 minutes and continue to bake.

7

Serve with ketchup or vegan mayonnaise.
