So – Apparently all I have to do in life to keep my fiance happy is to make what I would think of as favorite foods of 4 year olds. I made Ben french fries a few weeks ago, and it has become the side dish he requests most often. That and rice pilaf that comes out of the box or macaroni and cheese. (no- he’s not actually 4, don’t worry)
So here’s what is apparently the secret to any man’s heart:
I start by cutting my potatoes just like this- in half and then into slices. Not too thin-
After slicing them I turn them to begin slicing in the other direction. I find having the pan you’re going to be using already with some olive oil standing by is a good idea. Then, you don’t have to worry about having a “stand by” area for your cut potatoes.
These are ready for the pan!
So- I just throw them in the pan. Add some sea salt and some olive oil…
And then warm them up- cooked until they are slightly tender and completely coated in the olive oil/ salt.
Then just empty out everything onto a cookie sheet. Put it into the oven at 400 for about 45 minutes or until crispy.
Just like this! Yum!
And I try to serve a balanced meal… These french frieds are quite tasty, do not come out of a bag, and aren’t that bad for you! ENJOY!
