If you are looking for a healthier alternative to fried french fries, you’ve found it! These fries are made baked-not fried-and made from red potatoes instead of white, making them healthier…and more tasty! Everyone in my family loves these fries, from my mom to my children.


  • 5-6 red potatoes
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to your taste-Sea Salt or Kosher Salt are good choices for these fries

Step 1:

Cut up your potatoes into fries. I usually cut mine in half, then make them strips. Preheat your oven to 425F.

Step 2:

In a bowl, mix the cut potatoes, oil, garlic and any salt and pepper.

Step 3:

Layer the fries flat on a baking pan. Bake for about 15 minutes, flip, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes (depending on the level of crispiness your family likes).
