Oven Baked Fries Recipe

Oven Baked Fries are the same potato bites, without all the guilt that comes with it. They are made with a minimal amount of oil, then baked in the oven for crispiness. You’ll love the flavor and the reduced calorie content of these!

I think it is pretty normal to want all the best stuff for free, enjoyment without responsibility and deliciousness without calories. Let’s not talk about how that is impossible.

I mean, who wouldn’t want a mean burger with an extra-large side of fries, without thousands of calories from pure grease? I would!

I haven’t figured out the burger part, but now you can enjoy fries without the guilt that usually comes with consuming them.

These fries are oven roasted with only 2 tbsp of olive oil (and I hear it’s good for ya), so go ahead indulge!

No need to peel the potato. You can cut it in thicker wedges, sticks or whatever other shapes you want, but the thinner you cut them, the drier they will be.

    I am a sucker for french fries but don’t eat them nearly as often as I want to. These however look like they would be great and I wouldn’t have to feel guilty at all!
