Roasted potato strips are an excellent alternative to a plain baked potato and a healthful alternative to French fries. Not only do they cook faster, but they also allow you to keep the fat to a minimum by tossing the potatoes in just enough oil to give them a little flavor and encourage browning. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 long russet potatoes, about 1 lb. total 
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
  • 1 garlic clove 
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste 

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Cut the potatoes lengthwise into slices 1/2 inch thick. Stack half of the slices and cut lengthwise into strips 1/2 inch wide. Repeat with the remaining slices. Rinse the strips with cold water and spread on a clean kitchen towel; blot dry with a second kitchen towel.

Place the potatoes in a bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss to coat evenly.

Preheat a nonstick baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the hot baking sheet. Roast the potatoes, turning every 10 minutes, until evenly browned and tender when pierced with a knife, 30 to 35 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the parsley and garlic on a cutting board and chop together finely.

Transfer the potatoes to a serving dish and sprinkle with the salt and a grind of pepper. Add the parsley mixture and toss gently to coat. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than French fries! My health-conscious, teenaged daughters couldn't stop raving about these delicious potatoes. We LOVE good French fries, but rarely eat them because of the high saturated fat. These are baked in olive oil and have the same satisfying crunch and taste as their evil cousin. A new 5-star favorite has been added to our family cook book.
