Healthier french fries! Inspired by this recipe, but I simplified it.
- 1 1/2 lbs russet potatoes
- olive oil spray
Bring a large pot of water to a boil (with shakes of salt) and preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Cut the potatoes in “steak fry” shape, about 1/4″ thick. Add the potatoes to the boiling water and boil for THREE minutes. While boiling, fill a large bowl with ice water. After the 3 minutes of boiling, drain the potatoes and dump into the ice water. Once the potatoes are cool, drain the ice water and dump the potatoes onto a kitchen towel and blot them dry.
Spray with a bit of olive oil, sprinkle with a good amount of salt and toss well. Bake until tender, tossing/flipping after a bit of time. It should take about 10 – 20 minutes per side. If you want to crisp them up a bit more once they are tender, broil them for 1 minute at the end.
