French Fry Fail

   So last night I decided to try to make healthy french fries, and they turned out good, until I left them in the oven for too long... The recipe I used said 400 degrees for 45 minutes, but after 30 they were burnt to a crisp, half were completely inedible and the other half were still not very good.  So, if you attempt this either turn the heat down or check after 15-20 mins!! These fries are healthier because they are baked instead of fried and olive oil is a good fatty oil.  So enjoy!!

Here's What You'll Need:

1 large russet potato
olive oil to drizzle
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste.

First preheat your oven, peel and wash your potato.

Then, cut your fries, I used my mandoline for perfectly sized ones.

Next, soak your fries in water for 30 minutes, this will remove the starch and allow the fries to crisp up!

After they've finished their spa time, pat them completely dry!! completely!!
If they're wet they wont crisp, they'll steam and stay soft.

Then place them evenly on a baking sheet, drizzle olive oil over them, and add your seasonings.

Bake for 20-45 mins (check often!)
