Wondering what to serve with your grilling recipes this summer? My family loves homemade french fries! Perfect for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or any fun gathering, seasoned fries like these are a tasty addition to burgers, chicken, fruit salad, etc.
Step away from the freezer. You don't need those stale, tasteless potatoes to ruin your meal. Come on - these homemade fries are the perfect accompaniment for your delicious recipes. And they're so easy. Since they are not deep fried, they are so much healthier too.
2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2"-1/4" inch strips
1 1/2 T. vegetable oil
1 t. kosher salt
1/8 t. freshly ground pepper
1/8 t. red pepper flakes (if desired)
1/4 t. onion powder
1/4 t. seasoning salt
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese (if desired)
Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Stir well.
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and crispy.
If you watch your serving size (these directions make 4 servings), you'll add only 200 calories to your main dish (compare with 250 calories for a small fry helping at McDonald's)!
Where will you eat your homemade french fries this year?
