Oven French Fries
Easy Baked Potatoes Recipe for Kids
Oven French fries are a great way to fix potatoes without adding a whole lot of extra fat that comes from frying. It is also a bit safer than dealing with a vat of hot oil, making this a good recipe for kids to try.I have been serving store bought oven French fries to my kids for years. This was less motivated by health concerns then by a need for something quick, filling, and pleasing. The product you can buy here in France really is not too bad - some oil and just a hint of chemical something while they are cooking. But when I realized how easy it was to make our own and how much tastier, I started buying bags of potatoes instead of bags of pre-cut, frozen fries.
Getting Them CrispyOven French fries are easy to make and they sure are tasty, but are they crispy? It's going to be hard to get that same hot crispy crunch that comes from deep fat frying. Make sure that none of the fries are touching each other as they are baking and follow the recipe instructions to turn up the heat towards the end, and you should get some crunch. You can get even more crunch by twice baking the oven fries, but we're trying to keep things easy around here.
