Anyways, where were we? Right, french fries. (One more thing- do you realize that it was three years before the House cafeteria served french fries again? Ouch, America).
That aside, it's a pretty well-known fact that french fries, which were actually invented in Belgium, are one of the most delicious snacks in all of snackdom. However, short of buying a deep fryer, it can be tricky to recreate delicious fries at home. Especially healthy ones. Tipsy Turvy to the rescue!
Homemade Baked French Fries
5 large russet potatoes (russet potatoes have the perfect consistency for fries), well scrubbed
2T olive oil
1 1/2t sea salt (I prefer the taste of this to standard table salt)
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Note: this is a basic recipe for fries. If you're feeling extra fancy, additional flavor options include:
- 1t chopped rosemary
- 1t Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning
- or top with finely grated Parmesan cheese.
