Home-Made Fat-Free French Fries
I am a lifetime member of 'Weight Watchers' maintenance program. Although I don't always follow it to the T-Healthier food choices have become a part of me. Eating healthier does not have to mean less taste. This is one of many favorite recipes I used when I was learning the program. I never make french fries with oil anymore and this healthier cooking method makes better french fries. Who knew a fat-free recipe could be better than the old stand by made with oil. Enjoy, and I hope this becomes your standard recipe for fries too.

Instructions for Baked French Fries
- Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
- Cut potatoes into long slices; about 1/2" thick.
- Arrange cut potatoes on baking sheet that has been sprayed with oil or cooking spray in a single layer. Salt uncooked fries with table salt or Lawry's salt.
- Cook for 30 minutes at 325 degree's, then increase temperature to 400 degree's and cook another 30 minutes.
- You may turn the fries periodically to make sure they brown evenly. (I have done it both ways; even when I don't turn them, they turn out great anyway!).
- While fries are hot, add more salt. (Table salt or Lawry's salt).
- Options: Some choose to dip French Fries in ketchup while others enjoy drizzling them with malt vinegar.
