Homemade Baked French Fries – a fun and delicious way to health-ify French fries!!!
There is a time and place for the deep-fried, salty french fries ….. this is not that time. If you are in the mood for some french fries that won’t take a year off your life…. this is that time. These fries are salty, but not in an all-encompassing way that makes your body immediately swell up. They are tasty – the paprika is the key ingredient – and the olive oil coating still makes you feel like you are eating your classic greasy indulgence. They really are a great substitute for any frozen counterpart you find at the store and definitely better for you than what you can find at your local drive-through (hello – there are only 5 ingredients!). And they are just waiting to be added to your next meal plan….
I know some people are a little put off by oysters, the way you eat them, their texture…. but you need to try this recipe. It is ridiculous how amazing these taste. The smokiness of being cooked on the grill with warm, melted smoked paprika butter…. I mean, come on. Just try it. If you are looking to expand your culinary musings, this is a great place to start. If you are thinking “Hey, the weekend is coming up, maybe I should try and cook something fun and different” – this is your starting place. I encourage each and every one of you to plan a new meal for the weekend, and this is your appetizer. Yum-e.
