Baked French Fries with Paprika

Here's an oxymoron:  baked, not fried fries.  Baking them makes a typically unhealthy snack much healthier without losing its familiar, delicious, french fry taste.

Instructions

  1. Wash potatos and slice lengthwise into 1⁄2-inch slices.
  2. Cut the slices into french fry strips (skin may be left on).

  3. Place in a Pyrex baking dish or bowl and sprinkle with salt and paprika to taste. Toss until evenly coated.
  4. Place in microwave and cook for approximately 5 minutes, or until tender but not shriveled or dry.

    Nonmicrowave Option: Steam 10 minutes on the stove.

  5. Place precooked potatoes on a lightly oiled or lined cookie sheet and bake at 450°F for approximately 15 minutes, or until crispy brown and puffy— watch carefully so they don’t burn.
  6. Serve immediately.

Hint: Potatoes may be baked without precooking in the microwave, thus eliminating step 3. But precooking speeds the baking and results in a nicer texture and appearance.

Option: Lightly brush the potatoes with olive oil before baking, you can also try sprinkling them with spices such as rosemary.

Ready in: about 30 minutes

Serves: 1

    To cut these up, I cut a small amount of the potato off, then stand on end like an apple and use my apple corer, wedger. Works great!
