If the budget dictates that the local fast food restaurant is off limits, try this recipe to appease that french fry addiction.

OVEN FRIES (these are definitely not french “fries”, but a nice substitute)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

1 fist size sweet or white potato per person, peeled  (peeling white potatoes is optional but, if not peeled, scrub well with plain water

1/2  teaspoon oil per potato – olive oil or any cooking oil available

salt & pepper, optional

As a safety precaution, trim a small slice off of one side to prevent the potato from rolling while slicing in half.

Setting potato on flat side, slice potato in half. Slice each half into 1/4 inch thick slices.

Slice the 1/4 inch thick slices into “fries” or “straws”.

Place “fries” on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with cooking oil. Toss potatoes and oil together to coat. Spread potatoes out into a single layer. Cook for approximately 20 minutes.

Remove from oven; salt & pepper (optional)
