easy oven fries

While I cook almost every meal we eat, I don’t often have a large amount of time available for prep work. We’ve been moving away from processed food shortcuts and the latest food on my quest has been fries. I’ve finally found a method that tastes better than what I made when I pulled a bag from the freezer, and doesn’t take considerably more time. Even better, they taste better!

I use whatever potatoes I have on hand.

My aha moment the other day was to use my apple slicer. I slice the “core” piece in half lengthwise. This is so much faster!


Boil in salted water until soft & drain well.
Toss gently in olive oil. Spread on lightly oiled pan and sprinkle with (garlic) salt or other seasonings.

Baking instructions are because I always pair fries with veggie burgers; they’re next on my hit list!

Place in cold oven. Turn oven to desired temperature, I like 425°F. After oven has preheated set a timer for 10-12 minutes.
Add burgers and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy your golden fries.
