I bet you think these french fries are fried. Surprise! They are baked and they are very good. French fries are also known as frites in many parts of Europe. We are huge fans of all types of potatoes and these baked fries were a big hit with the family.
It only took 5 ingredients and a quick preparation to make these fries. And much more healthier for you than frying them.
The recipe came from the pages of Cooking Light magazine and was part of a full dinner recipe that included flank steak and kale. CLICK HERE for the recipe on Myrecipes.com.
Note: The recipe states that the potatoes will take 40 minutes to bake. Mine were done in 25-30 minutes. I would check them in 15-20 minutes, flip them and check them in another 10 minutes or so.
Speaking of cooking with 5 ingredients, come back next month for the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club where five bloggers cook dishes from Cooking Light and post about the meal on our blogs. The chosen theme for April is 5 Ingredients or Less. Also, read about this month's theme (A Taste of Spring) on Cooking Light's blog: Test Kitchen Secrets.
Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: The key to getting these fries crispy is to heat the pan for 5 minutes in a 500 degree oven before putting the potatoes on the pan. The potatoes will sizzle when it hits the pan. Also, keep the fries in a single layer. That will also help in getting them crispy and baked just perfect.
