Oven Baked Fries

Low Calorie Oven Fries

Kimberley K. Eggleston
The trick to these oven baked fries is a hot, hot oven! Serve alongside a healthy, hot sandwich for a meal that feels indulgent, but is easy on the waistline!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • Ingredients

  • 1 lb russet potatoes
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt, divided
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

2. Peel the potatoes, and slice into 1/2-inch stips.

3. In a large bowl, combine the water with 1 teaspoon of the salt and the sugar. Drop the potato slices into the water solution, and soak for 5 minutes. Drain, and pat the potatoes dry with a towel.

3. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes together with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the olive oil. Spread the potato slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray.

4. Bake at 425°F for 25 minutes. Turn the fries over with a spatula, and raise the oven temperature to 500°F. Bake an additional 10 minutes, until the fries are crisp and golden.

Better than eating out, Member magiclantern105

My father told me I could open a restaurant with these. That's how amazing they are. Enough said? Not quite, in fact. I should note that I doubled the recipe (using 2 lb. white potatoes) and it fed two hungry adults. So, those of you planning to feed six with a single batch - think again.
