Healthy Oven Fries

frenchfrycutter The Chef made oven fries last night, and I decided that it’s finally time to put the recipe here on the blog. We have them about once a week, and they’re always great. Occasionally, the Chef uses a sweet potato, instead of white potatoes, and those are tasty too.

Because we have these so often, the Chef invested in a French fry cutter, to make the preparation easier. If you don’t have one, you can cut them with a mandolin or knife. Just watch your fingers!

The Chef used to line the cookie sheet with parchment paper, but I gave him a Silpat baking mat last year, and he prefers to use that now. It seems to make the fries a bit crispier, and the oven can be set at 425°F, instead of 400°F.
