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!

  1. I make over fries a lot, and this is a nice spice mix. I always use a stone tray to make the fries. Preheat it with the over, and make sure there isn’t excess oil. Flip wedges halfway through cooking. Fries come out really crispy on the stone.

  2. I’m totally addicted to these fries! They grace our menu at least once a week. I was a little worried they were going to end up tasting like a taco because of the cumin and chili pepper.. but no.. just deliciousness. <3 <3 <3 I will never buy frozen fries again!!!

    1. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. My family and I loved these! Way better than anything from the grocer’s freezer aisle! Went with the original recipe. Trying the garlic version today. Used my crinkle cutter for fun crinkly fries!

  4. What do you think the difference between the crumpled foil and parchment paper is? I've been leaning towards parchment before foil lately.. just wondering if it will affect the crunchiness.

  5. Made these tonight with the fauxtisserie chicken. They were awesome! I made the originalrecipe. They were crispy and flavorful on the outside and soft on the inside. Will definitely be making them again. A huge hit with my 4 kids as well.
