These baked french fries WILL conquer you. They are simple to prepare, are sooooo tasty and you just can’t stop eating them.
And the best is that…is needs less oil than the quantity you use to dress your salad! As I read it on this recipe, I decided to try them immediately.
The result? I prepared them two days in a row! And when I took the plate to the table, we didn’t touch any other food until we had completely devoured all the potatoes.
The secret of these great baked french fries? I don’t know. I only know it comes always good – a friend of mine tried them after seeing me so enthusiastic and loved them too.
They may be classified as a side dish, I believe, but considering how they are inviting and how we ate them before the rest of the lunch, I’d consider it a great snack idea too.
