Oven Steak Fries

CATEGORIES: Kate, Oven Baked, Potatoes

Ah, french fries. The devil’s starchy fingers, as Mrs. Kim calls them. Fortunately for your heart, this recipe is actually healthy–you’re using the whole potato, including the nutritious skins, as well as coating them in some olive oil before baking them rather than deep-frying them. Of course, they’re still salty and, at least at my house, meet up with a little fry sauce at some point, but I try. I really do.

I got the original recipe from a girl I went to church with and, man, she had a lot of really yummy recipes for the skinny little thing she was! Then my friend Lisa mentioned the idea of using garlic salt, so I invented my own little garlicky peppery version. Over the years, I’ve tried lots of different flavor combinations, so just try some of them out and see what you love!
 
You’ll need 4 medium russet potatoes, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and whatever spices you choose (see the notes in the printable recipe below.)

  1. Hello! These look fabulous and I cannot wait to make them. But…what is "fry sauce" and do you have a recipe for it? Thanks! (PS: your recipes rock…I'm newly married and thus new to cooking–your blog has been so helpful)

  2. I made these for dinner a few days ago and they were awesome! I went with the garlic pepper ones because I like the crunchiness on the outside and the warm, soft goodness on the inside. I accidentally used a Tbsp. instead of a tsp. so I just tripled all of the seasoning ingredients and now have 2 more bags of seasoning ready to go for future use. Thanks a bunch!

  3. I tried these last week, and they are sooooo good. I only wish I made more. These will definitely be one of the “regulars” in my home. YUM.

  4. These are the prettiest fries I have ever seen. I want to reach through the computer screen and eat it! I’m really excited to make these.

  5. Ya know, I think the crumpled foil tip is one of the best I’ve ever heard. Before you told me that, my fries ALWAYS stuck to the foil and lost the yummy crunchy part when I peeled them off. I’ll love you forever for re-crunching my fries 🙂
