Healthier French Fries and Budget Friendly

Total Time
Prep 8 mins
Cook 45 mins

We love french fries but nor the fat or the salt. DH bought me a french fry cutter that I love as I use it for fruits and veggies besides FF. As we wanted fries for dinner t go with the super duper burgers (turkey) I made a batch of taters for the oven that rival any seasoned ones we have had, yet hugely better as they are no salt and minimal grease. Oven fires.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 russet potatoes, cut into fries
  • 29.58 ml olive oil
  • 29.58 ml approximate ms. dash sodium-free seasoning (or seasoning of choice no salt)


  1. cut taters into fry shape and rinse in a bowl of water.
  2. put olive oil into bowl of washed taters and mix around. Kids do this with their hands so do I.
  3. place on cookie sheet and sprinkle seasonings over top of fries. mix them up real well so they all have some coating of seasoning on them
  4. bake for 45 min at 350 degrees.
  5. *** times vary depending on fry size, steak fries longer, skinny fries shorter time. check after 30 min to guage length.
  6. options: garlic powder, oregano, basil, steak seasoning, Old Bay, cajun powder seasoning, chili powder. The options are all up to you.

I made this as 3 serves using Carisma potatoes (Low GI white) and cut them into wedges as my knife skills are not all that great and I left the skin on and used 1 tablespoon oil and a Masterfood herb and garlic seasoning and cooked them at 180C fan forced for 45 minutes for some very tasty wedges though not crispy but that is the way Carisma's cook up but the health benefits for me as a diabetic still let me have tasty chips/fries.

Fantastic french fries and the fact that they are baked and healthier for you is a real bonus. My seasonings of choice were pepper and my chili blend grinder. Mmmmm...nice and spicy. I used my NuWave oven and they turned out perfectly. Made for Feb. 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
