Skip The Drive Thru

Oven Baked Fries

You can skip the drive thru with these tasty oven fries my 6 year old has proclaimed are "better than McDonald's"!

Better Than McDonald's Oven Fries

6-8 organic russett potatoes - peeled and diced

olive oil

ground black pepper


real salt*

*I use a mineral salt from the bulk aisle of a health food store, which has the same mineral content as Redmond's RealSalt.

1. Peel and dice organic russet potatoes

2. In a bowl, drizzle diced potatoes with olive oil. Then sprinkle liberally with ground black pepper, paprika and real salt. Toss to coat.

3. Place potatoes on greased baking sheet and bake at 450 for 20 minutes. Flip fries after 10 minutes.

4. Give fries another sprinkle of real salt after removing from the oven.

We love these fries with our favorite Sloppy Joe recipe.
