Would you like some homemade fries without the frying? Try this method to also cut some calories and save on the mess of frying.
Making these fries was on a bit of a whim, some of the measurements for the seasonings are not exact at this time. When we make them again I will update the post. 3 medium potatoes were enough for Gary and me, with a serving left over.
3 Russet potatoes- washed
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
1/4 tablespoon red pepper flake
Sprinkle of onion powder
Sprinkle of garlic powder
Sprinkle of Greek seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste
Roughly peel the potatoes leaving a nice amount of skin, or all the skin as you like. Slice the potatoes into fry size like pictured below.
Place the cut potatoes in a bowl of ice water on the counter for an hour, then dry well on paper towels. Preheat your oven to 400
In a zip lock bag combine the oil and remaining ingredients, combine well with the potatoes. Line the potatoes on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake 30 minutes. Toss the fries; bake for another 30 minutes, or to desired done-ness.
Tip: I broiled them at the very end to add extra crisp, watching them closely to prevent burning.
