When I was growing up my dad would make fries. And they were my favorite.
He would clean and chop up potatoes, and cook them up in oil with some seasonings. We would dip them in ketchup and fry sauce (basically ketchup and mayo mixed together). And we loved them. I still love fries. I try to avoid them because of the whole white potatoes not being that great for you, and the extra carbs, and oil, and fat, etc. but sometimes I really just want fries! I’m human. I admit it.
So I decided to make some that I baked instead of fried. Not fried, fries. I realize how silly that is, and how it kind of defeats the purpose. But they are really…really…good. Especially with dip!
- 4-6 large baking potatoes
- 2-3 Tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- ½ tsp pepper
