Oven Fried Fries

March 28, 2013

I saw this pin on Pinterest the other day and I had 2 potatoes that were starting to sprout. I had a couple other potato recipes I wanted to try, but instead went with some oven fries. Let me tell you, around the 20 minute mark or so, my house literally smelled like McDonald's but not in an overly greasy way. I love fries. I know you love fries. And to be able to make them at home? Even better! Originally, I was viewing the pin from my phone and when I went to the source site, there was no recipe to be found. I ended up winging it, but I finally did find the recipe which will be linked below.

I might of sorta over baked mine a bit and while taking photos, added a little bit too much salt. Overall, they were actually pretty good! They're in between a fry and a soft potato chip... if that even exists. I would definitely give this recipe another shot... maybe sprinkle in some herbs or even make garlic fries.

Also, I've been planning a blogiversary group giveaway and I am so excited! Hope you'll be too :)

  1. As soon as I can have fries again, I'm making these!! YUM

  2. I love making fries this way! Roasting potatoes is so yummy and all the spice combos to put on them makes it a lot of fun to experiment with.

    1. I think roasting anything and everything is my favorite thing to do. It's the best lazy way to cook, but end the results is always delicious!

  3. gaaaa where's my potatoes?!?!

    1. where's my madeleines?!?! *wink wink*
      not a fair swap though

  4. These look restaurant made!! And they sound super tasty. I love french fries. I don't eat them all the time, but they're a favorite indulgent of mine... but the great part about your recipe is they're still fries but a fresher, healthier homemade choice. Om nom!


    1. Thanks Amber! I love fries too and I'm still going to indulge in my McD's and BK fries from time to time.
