How to Make Skinny Fries in the Oven

homemade skinny french fries

I love FRENCH FRIES. So delish, and dipped in ketchup (Heinz of course) is pretty close to heaven. And while the doc has some great tips on healthy eating, does anyone want to mess with a pregnant lady when she is in a happy place???? My husband would say no :o)  But there is a small hiccup in one of my favorite foods mentioned by the doc, they aren’t that great for you. Most fries after all are FRIED. Well, I have done what I can to make them “not so bad.” And today I want to share with you how to make homemade skinny fries in the oven!

First, and foremost, you have to cut them correctly, so check this out.

  1. Made them tonight – they are awesome! Something about the chili powder makes the flavor very close to fried (not sure how to explain it – but really good). Question – I made 4 potatoes and doubled the other ingredients. Definitely overdid it and had to pour a lot of extra out. What would you suggest for the ingredient amounts when the recipe is doubled? Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  2. Dear Laura Beth,

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  3. These fries look ahmaaazing! I’m a fry fanatic..but don’t eat too many since they like my thighs so much! Haahaa. Pinning! Found you through Keri’s side dish post :)

  4. These look awesome! But I’m wondering… Can you freeze them? Like make a bunch ahead of time and pull them out as needed.

  5. The texture of these fries look amazing! And so simple – will definitely try these.
