A seasoned potato similar to french fries. I use a sugar water mixture to soak the potatoes first becuase I've heard that this is a trick to great french fried potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup water (Or enough water to cover potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose french fry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 dash steak seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons safflower oil


  1. Scrub and wash potatoes.
  2. Cut into steak fry size portions.
  3. Combine sugar and water.
  4. Place potatoes in bowl and cover in sugar water mixture.
  5. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  6. Drain and pat dry.
  7. Add potatoes, seasoning and oil into large ziplock bag or plastic bag.
  8. Shake vigorously.
  9. Pour back in sugar water bowl.
  10. Microwave mixture on baked potato setting or 7 minutes on high.
  11. Pour onto cookie sheet in one layer.
  12. bake at 450 for 20 minutes or until browned or on broil setting in toaster oven. This is how I like them.
