Oven "fries" from Weight Watchers created by teresas

Soaking the potatoes in a salt-sugar solution draws out some of the water, so they brown rather than steam in the oven. 3 Points.

    Very tasty fries...we loved the salty paprika flavor....I did notice that by turning the fries after 10 minutes that some of them were very soft and fell apart...so I would suggest not turning them for at least 15 minutes...but after the 45 minute cooking time they were nice and crispy...I also left the skins on...we like the extra texture that the skins bring the fries...excellent Weight Watcher recipe...thanks for posting it...made for Spring 2014 PAC

    These were so tasty, and I would never have guessed this to be a Weight Watchers recipe. The paprika added a nice touch to the potatoes. My only issue was not using enough oil, and most stuck to my roasting pan. But that's not a fault of the recipe. So I would urge others to be sure the pan is well oiled, because you don%u2019t want to miss out any bit of these delicious potatoes. Thank you for sharing your recipe, spoilme. Made for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.

    Worked out great. This is how I will do it from now on. Served with South Americans. Yum.
