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 tastier! Everyone in my family loves these fries, from my mom to my children.

The process is quite simple and quick. In fact, we tend to add these to our weekly dinner routine.

The ingredients added are what really make these fries tasty and it’s probably ones you already have at home!

Bake them to your desire, we normally like them a little crispier!
