Fake Fries

My husband and I are increasing our effort to eat at home more often. In the past few years we've gone from eating out 4-6 nights a week and 2-4 breakfasts/lunches a weekend, to maybe 2 nights a week and maybe 1-2 breakfasts/lunches a weekend. But even that can be cut down, not only to save our pocket books, but of course, our waistlines.

This is sometimes incredibly difficult considering we live right next to an In-N-Out, Taco Bell, Arbys, Weinerschnitzel, McDonalds, and a Chik-Fil-A, as well as a nearby handful of terrific Mexican places, inexpensive yet delicious sushi, and numerous other restaurants.

We recently made homemade Big Macs using ground turkey and sandwich thins. Alas, there was no "special sauce", lettuce, tomatos, onions, or sesame buns. Guess, they weren't really Big Macs then.

Just like these aren't really french fries.

Printable Recipe

2 large baking potatos
Cajon Seasoning or Season Salt
olive oil

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the potatos into long wedges or strips, whatever size and shape suits your. Place them in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil (I use an oil mister), and season liberally with seasonings. Toss to ensure all potato slices are seasoned.

Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the outside is crisp.

ok, I figured it out. It is a blogger feature under configure blog settings. Check the box marker "Reactions" and put in the names you want to appear.
