If you follow me on social media, you know that oven fries are a staple food in my diet. I enjoy them for breakfast, especially after a heavy leg day at the gym, but they also are delicious as a side with lunch or dinner.
I also love how easily you can change up this recipe using a different spice blend. My favorites are Smoky, Diner, and Greek… but really any spice blend would be delicious, or even plain ol' sea salt!
All of my spice blend recipes are printed in Practical Paleo 2nd Edition, but if you want an easy button, you can buy my premade, organic blends from Kasandrinos.com.
PS- This recipe is just a new take on my Baked Potato Chips (page 430) from Practical Paleo 2nd Edition.
Oven Fries based on “Baked Potato Chips” from Practical Paleo 2nd Edition
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 25 to 30 minutes
3-6 red-skinned potatoes (use enough to fill 2 sheet pans, quantity may vary based on the size of your potatoes)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons Smoky spice blend**
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Toss the potato slices in the oil so that each slice is evenly coated. Divide the potato slices between the two pans and spread them out in a single layer. Sprinkle them evenly with the spice blend.
Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the pan from the oven and flip the potato slices. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Serve warm.
Note: These fries are best when served immediately, as they may become quite soggy when stored. However, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and re-crisp them in a preheated low oven or toaster oven (about 250°F) until warmed, about 5 minutes.
FODMAP Free? Use a FODMAP-free spice blend or just use sea salt.
**Change it Up! You could season with any of my other spice blends (pages 256-257 in Practical Paleo 2nd Edition) – the Diner or Greek Blends would be great – or simply use sea salt.
