Can you still call a French Fry a French Fry if it isn't fried? Baked fries will make you wonder why you ever drove to those "Golden Arches". Your kids will love the way these baked fries taste. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
  Russet potatoes 3 Large, peeled & cut into “fries”
  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil/Canola oil 2 Tablespoon
  Kosher salt 1 Tablespoon

1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
2. Wash the sliced potatoes under running water to wash off extra starch.
3. With a paper towel dry these “fries”.

4. Put these fries on a sheet tray and pour olive oil and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of kosher salt. Toss to coat evenly.
5. Bake for 20 minutes, then toss and bake for an additional 10 minutes (for a total of 30 minutes).

6. Serve with any dip of your choice, you could team it up with burger too.

Last week I had the moment many moms with kids older than mine have warned me about. I was driving with Kenya and at one point he looked out the window and said, "Mommy, what's that place over there with the playground and hamburgers on the sign?" Now, I grew up eating McDonald’s, but now that I know what's really inside fast food meals, I'm committed to trying to keep my kids away from it for as long as possible. That doesn't mean that I want them to miss out on the fun foods I enjoyed as a kid (and still enjoy), like burgers and fries. I simply want them eating the healthiest possible versions of those foods and I’ve realized through a lot of testing, that to do so, you don’t have to sacrifice great taste. For example, take one of my favorites: French fries. Instead of deep frying, I bake them in the oven.
