Tasty Tuesday- The Best Oven Baked Fries

I discovered and tweaked this recipe as my own a few years ago when I was really focusing on weight loss and was looking for a healthy french fry recipe that was also super quick and easy. (Because if it wasn't quick and easy, I was probably going to grab a bag of chips. Let's be honest.) Years later my family still requests this recipe even though weight loss is the last thing on their mind! It's absolutely delicious, and most likely you have all the ingredients right now. Don't you love it when that happens! Here's what you'll need...

This is for a single serving. I would plan for 2 small potatoes, or 1 large potato, for each family member.

Printable Recipe

-2 small potatoes
-1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
-1 Teaspoon salt

(Feel free to add any other seasonings you think you would enjoy! This is just a good base, or a good basic french fry recipe!)

After washing the potatoes cut off 4 sides of the potato skin, leaving the top and bottom and a little on the sides.

Then slice thinly and cut into a large "matchstick" kind of cut. Toss with the olive oil and salt until everything is lightly coated. Depending on the size of your potato(s) add more or less.

Spread these in a single layer onto a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper for super easy clean up) and bake at 400 for 20 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
