Baked French Fries are a delicious side dish to make. They have a mild flavor and are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. There is no salt, but you don't miss it because of the flavors from the other spices.
Baked French Fries are an easy dish to prepare. You simply cut the potatoes into wedges, dredge through the oil and spice mixture then bake. In 30-40 minutes, you will have a tasty side dish!
Before using the potatoes, you should wash them. The soil that the potatoes are grown in gets lodged in the eyes of the potatoes. Sometimes, when I purchase a bag of potatoes, the potatoes are clearly covered in dirt. When I wash potatoes, I use soap and scrub the potato with my hand. Then, I rinse well. When making your french fries, you can peel the potatoes, or leave the skin on the potatoes. I prefer to peel the potatoes.
When I cut the wedges, I first quarter the potato, then slice the quarters into wedges. Depending on the size of the potato, a quarter of the potato will give me 3-4 wedges. The wedges I cut are about 1/4 of an inch thick. As I cut each quarter into wedges, I dredge the wedges through the oil and spice mixture and place on the greased baking sheet. You can place the wedges pretty close to each other. Your baking time may vary, depending on the thickness of your wedges.
The flavor of the baked french fries is mild. You could add more spices to increase the flavor, but, be careful, because too much spice may coat the potatoes. The baking will dry the spices and you will end up with french fries that are coated in dry spices.
I hope you enjoy!
