Fat Free Fries

We live in Idaho - we have a lot of potatoes here. Surprisingly, most of the #1 sized giant ones get exported but we can still get the smaller ones for pretty cheap. I purchased 15 lbs yesterday for $2.

Needless to say, that's a lot of potatoes so thankfully there are many different ways to prepare them - that's the beauty of potatoes. Last night we had fat free homemade fries! Mmmm...

Here's how:

- 6 medium sized potatoes peeled
- Pam cooking spray

- Season salt

- Rock salt

- After peeling potatoes, slice into fry-sized segments. Spray cookie sheet with Pam cooking spray. Place potatoes on cookie sheet in single layer. Spray potatoes thoroughly with more cooking spray. Sprinkle with desired amounts of season salt and/or rock salt (regular table salt works fine too but the rock salt tends to keep the favor better during the baking process).

- Bake 25-30 minutes at 450 degrees in oven. Cook longer if prefer crispy fries.

(Don't worry, the outside does not get hot except during cleaning cycles and we only do those at night.)

- Eat and enjoy!

Served with hamburger from our recent beef purchase which has been placed on - you guessed it - potato bread buns!

Serves 4 adults. Prep time: 25 minutes. Baking time: 25 minutes.
