Cheesy Baked Fries

A quick recipe for baked fries. I am not sure if this is healthier than regular fries, probably not in terms of calories, but at least you can control the salt and oil intake. These can be served as a side, or as a vegetarian meal.

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • Cut, dice, and slice everything
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil and grease with vegetable oil
  • Lay potatoes flat in one layer on a cookie sheet and send to oven to bake 25-30 mins
  • In the meantime, sauté mushrooms, white onion, and red pepper all separately
  • Add the above ingredients + cheese, green onions, and thyme over potatoes and bake another 5 minutes

Voila! Super simple. You can always save time (and tears) by buying chopped onions and mushrooms.

    That looks super yummy. My new year's resolution was to give up deep-fried foods. So maybe I can eat French fries this year after all...

    Love

      See, it's all about the way you cut the potatoes. :)

    Looks delish! Also definitely healthier than fried fries. Next step is to ruin everything with some extra potent truffle oil :D

      I've switched from olive oil to vegetable oil and like it much better! It seems a lot less heavy and I actually like the flavor better too. Plus it's cheaper. Win/Win!
