Oven baking makes these french fries lower in fat and still crispy.

I think I'd heard about this before, but last night I tried it for myself. I love french fries, but only indulge rarely.


Not any more! I cut them up as usual, and sprayed them lightly with Pam Olive Oil spray.

We watched about a food truck that serves footlong potato fries. Minutes later we craved for it. I've seen how they make it except for their exact ingredients. I tried making it simple and fortunately it looks similar but it's only half the length since I don't have the same equipment they use. The space is limited. Still the same taste as the fries we usually enjoy.

Similar in flavor to BBQ flavored potato chips, these fries are a delicious change from regular French fries. Try using your air fryer for these.

A healthier alternative to the traditional white potato fries, sweet potato fries are becoming popular. They are fluffier than potatoes and have a wonderful sweet flavor that goes well with many seasonings.
