Crispy Oven Baked Fries


We've been enjoying cooking hamburgers on our new outdoor fireplace this summer.  And since hamburgers go well with a side of fries I thought I'd share with you my favorite french fry recipe.



Crispy Oven Baked Fries
nourishing-bites.blogspot.com

5 or 6 russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/3 inch-thick french fry-style strips
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons salted butter (preferably grass fed)
real salt to taste

1. Place cut potatoes into a large bowl of cold water.  Allow to soak for about 20 minutes.  This remove the starch making your fries more crispy.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place oil and butter in a bowl and put in oven to melt while it preheats.

3. Drain the potatoes and pat dry with paper towels.  Return to bowl and drizzle with melted oil and butter.  Stir to coat.  Spread potatoes out on rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with salt to taste.

4. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until potatoes are golden brown.  Use a metal spatula to scoop up fries.  Enjoy with ketchup!

  3. I love that you bake them instead of frying. It saves so much calories and unhealthy fat!
