My stepson told me that my fries are as good as Sunfish Grills–a huge compliment! They're super easy to make and they do taste good without being fried in grease.
Preheat oven to 425.
Wash, then slice potatoes lengthwise 1/4 inch thick. Be sure to leave the skins on. Put in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Let soak for about 8-10 minutes then drain and blot with paper towels.
Put dried fries back in the bowl (whipe the bowl with a paper towel first to dry it out).
Drizzle a couple tablespoons of olive oil on the fries and add sea salt. Sometimes I'll add pepper or I'll do truffle salt instead of sea salt…chopped fresh rosemary is also good. They're your fries–make 'em how you like them. If you want to add fresh garlic, I recommend waiting until the fries are cooked and then tossing in garlic. If garlic burns, it becomes bitter.
Toss fries with your hands in bowl to coat with oil and spices.
Put fries on a cookie sheet without having any overlap or touch. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes, then turn over and bake 10-15 minutes longer until golden.
Enjoy! I like tarter sauce with my fries…how about you?
