So when I say we eat whole foods, I don’t always mean they are perfectly healthy whole foods. Part of eating well is also loving what you eat. I’m not going to stick with an eating plan if I’m not excited to cook and eat what I’ve planned. Cue the french fries. Yes, I said fries… just without the fry part.
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect oven fry recipe for years now. I’ve made many many batches and tested many techniques. The ingredients don’t often change but the method does vary. After trying gobs and gobs of recipes, it is safe to say that America’s Test Kitchen has the perfect method. Of course there are more steps than others, but that my friend, is why the end result is perfect.
Dip them in some homemade nacho cheese and you really have yourself an enjoyable meal. I served these with yesterday’s amazing chicken legs and some steamed broccoli. No one left the table hungry that night. Such a good meal. Enjoy!
Peal the potatoes and cut them into 8 long wedges, make sure they are all close to the same thickness. Put all of the potatoes in a medium bowl. Fill the bowl with hot tap water and let the potatoes soak for 10 to 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes and then pat them dry with a clean dish cloth or paper towels. Wipe the bowl out too so there is no water left in it. Put the dry potatoes back in the dry bowl and toss them in 1 tablespoon of oil.
