A terrific and flavorful option to regular French fries.  These are oven baked and seasoned with rosemary, thyme and paprika to add loads of flavor.  You will forget that they are not fried.

Healthier French Fries


  • 3 medium-to-large Russet potatoes (or sweet potatoes as a substitute)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp rosemary
  • 1/8 tsp thyme
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (or more if you like them really spicy!)


  1. Preheat oven to *425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel and slice potatoes into fries and place on a clean dishtowel. Pat potato slices with clean paper towels until completely dry.
  3. Using a gallon-size ziplock baggie, add olive oil and seasonings to the bag. Mash and combine the oil and seasonings, while evenly distributing the mixture throughout baggie.
  4. Place slice potatoes into the baggie, seal and shake until potatoes are well coated.
  5. Immediately transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, making sure that potatoes are evenly spaced for best results.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes until lightly browned around edges. (If making sweet potato fries, check them at about 15-20 minutes, as they often take less time, depending on how thick they’re cut.)

Makes about 4 servings.
