This is what we used to make when I was on the Slimming World plan. They are Sin free on a Green day. Quantity of potatoes and serving size is subjective, just make however much you would normally for the amount of people you are cooking for.
- Cut the potato into fries as usual and then boil them for a few minutes in salted water.
- Drain them then shake them in the pan to "rough" up the surfaces (this is the trick to making them come out crispy and with a good texture).
- Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the potatoes on it. Spray some more cooking spray on the potatoes.
- Cook them in a fairly hot oven, around 200-220c until they are nice and crispy, turning at least once.
Since it was written to boil a few minutes, I tried with 5 minutes. I drained the potatoes. They seem to be ok. Then I put them back in the pan to shake it. I shouldn't have done that. They began to turn flaky. Even if I sprayed them, they didn't get more golden. I have better result when I don't boil the potatoes first. Sorry about that. Thanks for posting. I was curious to try this way. Made for PAC Fall 2011
Can't fault these for ease and healthfulness. I left the skins on mine and made then as written. I did double the recipe to feed the two of us but it was simple to do. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
These were great!! I sliced them really thin because I like them that way. I put salt and pepper on them before baking. Thanks for the recipe its one I will use often.
