Crispy herb fries no oil

Crispy Herb Fries

This is Bonnie’s idea. She made this today so I had to make myself a batch as well!

baked fries

4-5 medium potatoes
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Italian herb seasoning (oregano/basil) – use more to coat the fries as desired
1 tsp (or more) of dill weed
1 tsp Lawry’s seasoning salt (optional)

Wash 4-5 medium potatoes and cut into strips, enough to cover a long baking tray. Put fries into a bowl and mix with the spices above so everything is coated. The spices will stick to the potatoes since they are a bit wet inside and starchy. Bake at 450 degrees F on a non-stick baking mat no oil or spray for half an hour or more until browning and crispy. If you use parchment paper instead watch the max temperature allowed on the package. I do up to 40 minutes many times to get them really crispy.  Cut the potatoes thinner for more crisp fries. It’s possible to get crispier fries by boiling the potatoes a bit first, but who has the time? 🙂

Eat with ketchup and/or no fat brown gravy. If you want veggie burger ideas check out Jeff Novick’s Burger and Fries DVD.
