French fries are my weakness. I’ll admit it, the thought of a crispy, salty fry makes my mouth water. However, I really don’t like frying French fries, not because of the nutritional aspect, but because it is pretty messy and time consuming. Instead, I would make oven fries and that too turned into a big mess; they were always soggy. After hearing about another technique I thought I would give it a try. The key is to actually boil the sliced potatoes before baking them. The result is a crispy, golden brown french fry.
Once you get the technique down it is really easy to change this recipe to suit your tastes. I've used simple kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. I also made cajun fries by substituting 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning for the seasoning salt. Enjoy!
