My 2nd trimester pregnancy craving? French Fries.
In an attempt to lighten up on the calories and grease, I found this amazing recipe for oven fries. The ingredients are not really the secret to the amazing part. I believe the secret lies in baking them on a wire rack. They come out so crispy and evenly browned!
1 1/2 lb baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 in. thick strips
1 Tbsp. veg oil (olive oil is fine too)
1 tsp. salt (I used sea salt)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rinse potatoes in cold water. Drain and pat dry. Toss together potatoes, oil, and salt in a large bowl. Spray wire rack lightly with cooking spray. Place rack in a jelly-roll pan. Arrange potatoes in a single layer. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
Serve immediately with ketchup, of course.
