THE BEST BAKED FRIES AND POTATO WEDGES
I have always had a passion for French fries, and therefore, I could never pass by those golden arches without stopping in to buy some.
These days, we are trying to eat a lot healthier, so it was a very sad day when I had to give up my French fries. But I found with some research, that you don’t really have to give up what you love. Just find a substitute that is healthier and one that tastes just as good.
While that may not always be easy, after a lot of experimentation, I found what we consider to be a recipe for the perfect fry. The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to turn the fries in the oven. It is made with only 1 TBS of oil, and it tastes fabulous.
absolutely delish! i must have cut some pretty thick wedges because they took about 50 minutes to be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, but the proportion of spices and cheese is perfect! strange how such simple ingredients create something so flavorful, but we really enjoyed this!
You won’t even know these are oven fries. You owe it to your heart to try this healthy recipe for French fries. I bet you won’t even miss the ones at the golden arches. I don’t.

1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese from shaker
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil
1. OVEN: Heat oven to 450 degrees. Baking time is 35 minutes. No need to turn the fries! MAKING OVEN FRIES: Spray a foil lined baking sheet with cooking spray if you are using a regular cookie sheet. I use an Aire Gourmet baking sheet, and if you like these fries, it is worth the investment of buying one. Because olive oil does not smoke at high temperatures when using this baking sheet, and the fries are a gorgeous golden brown. (I prefer to use parchment paper, which I don’t grease, and it makes the removal of the fries a snap to prepare from oven to serving bowl.)
2. Soak the cut potatoes in ice water for at least 30 minutes. Don’t skip this step as it makes them crisp.
3. Blot cut potatoes on a clean tea towel to remove moisture.
4. Combine all dry ingredients in a plastic bag and combine with potatoes, tossing and kneading lightly to coat. Drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil.
