Spicy French ‘Un’ Fries

Written By steeve adam on Thursday, 18 May 2017 | May 18, 2017

Commercial french fries are not only high in fat, they also contain harmful transfats, from the partially-hydrogenated oils that they’re cooked in. And if that’s not all, recent studies have shown that acrylamide - a neurotoxin and mutagen - is formed in foods like french fries and potato chips that have been
fried at high temperatures. Making your own “fries” is a safer and more healthful alternative to commercial fries.


  • 2 large potatoes (approx 4” long) 
  • 2 servings of Mazola cooking oil spray 
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ground chili pepper
  • 1 tsp. Lawry’s garlic salt


 Cut potatoes lengthwise (like French Fries). Preheat oven at 375o F. Combine garlic salt and red chili pepper (adjusting amounts to suit your taste). Arrange the potato strips in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Coat the potatoes with the vegetable oil spray. Flip them over and spray the other side. Sprinkle with garlic salt and red pepper seasoning. Bake for one hour. Note: A serving of the spray oil is a 2.5 second spray.
