When Artists Cook- French Fries

Hi Everyone.  I am happy to share that I am part of a blog series called “When Artists Cook”.  Each week an artist will share their art which is focused around food, recipes, cooking, and more. This month I am sharing one of my favorite recipes of oven baked french fries.  I could eat these every day!

Oven French Fries:
 
Ingredients:
4 large russet potatoes (peeled if you have fructose intolerance)
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
½ – ¾ tsp. Celtic sea salt
¼ tsp. garlic salt
1/8 tsp. ground cumin
¾ tsp. basil leaves
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
¼ tsp. chili powder
Instructions:
Peel and cut potatoes into strips.  In a large mixing bowl, drizzle potatoes with olive oil and add salt and herbs.  Stir until the potatoes are evenly coated.  Place potatoes on a non-stick cookie sheet that has the lips on each side.  I like to spray the pan first with an olive oil spray.
Bake at 420° for 45-55 minutes, flipping every 15 minutes.  Some days the fries cook faster than other days.

Feel free to modify the salt and herbs to your taste.  I am on a high salt diet, so feel free to cut this back if needed.

I love using herbs from my garden.  The recipe below is with dried herbs, but if you have fresh cut herbs it makes the French fries even better.

I love dipping them in Mayo seasoned with Salt, Garlic Salt, Italian Seasonings, Basil and Oregano.

Eat often!
