Healthy Baked French Fries

So good I may or may not have eaten the whole pan 😛


  • 2 potatoes (scrubbed clean and dried)
  • Olive oil spray
  • Pinch of sea salt and black pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • Chopped fresh dill (optional)
  • Drizzle of Lemon juice (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit
  2. Chop potatoes into matchsticks by halving, halving once more, then cutting into wedges and then strips
  3. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and generously spray with olive oil spray
  4. Add potato and minced garlic and spray on top with olive oil spray. Add sea salt and pepper. Toss to coat
  5. Arrange fries a single layer making sure they aren’t touching too much. This will help them crisp up and cook evenly.
  6. Bake for 25-25 minutes, tossing/flipping at least once to ensure even baking.
  7. Add lemon juice and chopped dill for extra flavor


  1. I used Yukon Gold Potatoes because that is what I had at home, but russet potatoes should be delicious too!
  2. I added the dill and lemon juice for extra flavor, but these are optional
  3. Feel free to revise seasoning based on your preferences.
  4. Fries tend to stick to aluminum foil, Minimalist Baker recommends using parchment paper instead so that fries will stick less.
