French Fries that are baked instead of fried. Soaking the potatoes in a salt-sugar solution draws out some of their water, so they brown, rather than steam, in the oven.

Recipe Ingredients for Oven "Fries"

3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch strips
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
4 teaspoons oil
1 teaspoon paprika

Recipe Directions for Oven "Fries"

  1. Preheat the oven to 450m degree, spray a nonstick baking sheet with nonstick spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the sugar with cold water to cover. Soak 15 minutes, drain and blot dry.

  3. In another large bowl, toss the potatoes with the oil and paprika. Place in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake, turning the potatoes over as they brown, until cooked through and crisp, about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
