French Fries

Here is a neat item.

I got this french fry cutter as an incentive when I ordered a meat grinder a while back.

I use the fry cutter more than I have used the meat grinder.

I even busted the top I have used it so much.

I have to make sure I shield my hand from the crack in the top with a towel now. That crack can grab the skin on your palm and hurt like the dickens.

It makes perfect fries.

Here is a lower fat recipe I use and they turn out well.

About 4 medium to large potatoes
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon onion flakes
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Teaspoon dried basil
1 Teaspoon garlic pepper
Salt to taste

Put the cut potatoes in a freezer bag and top with all other ingredients but salt. Close the bag and shake well making sure the oil gets all over potatoes.

Bake in a single layer on greased jelly roll pan, 425 degrees about 30 minutes stirring a couple of times. Salt to taste when done.

    I always ‘bake’ my ‘fries’! Never thought to add onions flakes…sounds yummy. Of course, I don’t have an official ‘fry’ cutter so mine probably wouldn’t be as good ;-(

    Yeah, Katiez yours probably are all over the place..lol

    Before I got my cutter I didn’t do fries much..too tedious to cut up for my tastes.

    but I used to do wedges. easy

    Would you believe I have never seen a fry cutter? I promise, I don’t live under a rock.
