2 Recipes that Satisfy Your French Fry Craving Without Throwing Off Your Entire Diet

Craving a crispy baked French fry or crunchy home fries?

It’s mid-summer and if you haven’t already, it’s time to get your grill flame fired up and make our infamous BBQ Swiss Burgers. For guilt-free flavor, we recommend serving them with our delicious Crispy Baked Fries or Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Home Fries featured below. If you enjoy potatoes on your morning plate, these recipes also pair nicely with your favorite breakfast foods. Our personal favorite is this Early Morning Mushroom Feta Eggs recipe.

Both recipes are interchangeable with potatoes or sweet potatoes, allowing you to take the opportunity to get creative and bake whichever you’re craving. Since they’re easily prepped ahead of time and are even freezer-friendly, they’re great when you’re in a pinch or strapped for time.

So, get cooking and give your taste buds something to talk about.

Main Ingredients:
Great Additions for Added Flavor: (Choose 1-2)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease baking pan with EVOO and evenly spread potato wedges on pan. Drizzle remaining olive oil to lightly coat wedges and toss wedges so they are evenly coated. Add salt and pepper.
  3. Choose any (or all) of the spices listed above and sprinkle on wedges, toss and spread the wedges out evenly. Our favorite is a little Old Bay or some cayenne pepper for a bit of heat!
  4. Bake wedges for 45 minutes in a preheated oven. Every 10 minutes, turn the wedges so they crisp up and bake evenly.
  5. If you like your fries especially crunchy, turn your broiler on high following the recommended bake time. Keep a close eye and flip the wedges every minute or so until they reach your desired crispiness. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.

Healthy Sweet Potato Home Fries


  • Course: ,
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30-40 minutes
  • Total Time: 29 minute

Description

These baked Sweet Potato Home Fries are an honest-to-goodness staple in our kitchen. No matter what day of the week it is, if you sift through our fridge, you’ll most likely find a container of these tasty treats. We eat them in burger bowls, at breakfast with eggs, use them to top salads or simply serve as a side. Because it takes a bit of chopping, we typically make a big batch at the beginning of the week and serve them with whatever tickles our fancy. You can even freeze them for later use!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place chopped potatoes on a large baking pan. Coat potatoes with EVOO, salt and pepper. Use your hands to massage EVOO into potato cubes and evenly spread them into a single layer on the pan.
  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes, tossing occasionally so potatoes crisp up and bake evenly.
  4. For a little added crunch, broil these babies for 5-10 minutes before serving. Pay close attention so they don’t burn while under the broiler! Toss them every 2-3 minutes for an even crunch on all sides.

Notes

Always check for FfL-friendly ingredients.
