Easy Oven Fries Recipe

Rebecca Clyde, MS, RDN, CD

Sliced red potatoes from Idaho tossed with sweet potato strips yield a dish that's as pretty as it is great tasting. It's also kid-pleasing! 

Ingredients

Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 large sweet potato (about ½ pound), peeled
2 to 3 red potatoes (about ½ pound), scrubbed with peel on
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Slice the potatoes very thinly (use a food processor if you have one).
  4. Place the potatoes in a bowl; add the oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  5. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet. Spread them out in a single layer.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes; turn the potatoes over. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are slightly crisp and golden brown.

Nutrition Nugget: Scrub the sweet potatoes and slice with the skin on. It's edible and adds fiber.

Substitution: Substitute an equal weight of an Idaho or a Russet potato for the red ones; scrub well and follow the recipe.
