Oven Fries

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Everyone loves French fries, but who’s going to make them at home? They’re messy and require too much babysitting—and besides, they’re hardly the healthiest side dish on the planet. So here is the baked alternative—crispy as you please, but much less fatty than the fried kind. Try them once and see if your family doesn’t love them.

Yield: 4 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 large baking potatoes, scrubbed (about 1½ pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 500°F. Generously grease a large baking sheet.

2. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/3-inch-thick French fries. Toss them with the oil and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Spread them on the pan and roast them in the lower third of the oven for 15 minutes. Turn them over and roast until golden on all sides, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt to taste and serve.
