Make Your Own Healthy And Delicious Homemade French Fries



French fries have the flavor, salt, and mouth appeal that make them hard to refuse. Whether you call them French fries, chips, or fries, deep-fried potatoes are a universal guilty pleasure and supremely satisfying.

However, indulging in an order from your favorite fast-food joint isn’t the healthiest choice at all.

Little do we know, fries are usually cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oil that produces a by-product called trans fats. Some researchers claim this fat may be even worse for our health than saturated fat.

Fortunately, you can now make your fried favorite into a healthy side dish much easier than you might think. Go healthy and homemade with these easy techniques to make delicious French fries you can enjoy guilt-free.

1. Bake, Don’t Fry

Traditional fries are cooked in a vat of vegetable oil, which means you’re getting a lot of extra fat and calories in your favorite side dish. And while baking your fries undoubtedly cuts back, it’s still easy to go overboard with oil.

2. Go Oil-Free

By taking frying out of the equation, you’re slashing calories and fat right off the bat. Yy eliminating oil all together, you’re not slimming down those fries but your body even more.

3. Skip the Salt

While you can control sodium content better at home, salt is far from your only option when it comes to flavoring your fries. Instead, choose flavorful spices that pack a punch without adding extra sodium.

4. Go Sweet

Sweet potatoes are higher in fiber and vitamin A and lower in calories than your classic potato — and they make slightly sweet fries that are absolutely delicious.

5. Skinny Dip

Ketchup is the go-to companion for a serving of fries, but tasty as it may be, the condiment can be a sneaky source of calories and sugar. Opt for a homemade version to keep sugar under control.

Homemade French Fry Recipe

1. Wash and remove the skin from several potatoes. You will need to cut them in half in order to fit them into the french fry cutter.

2. Cut the potatoes into strips using a french fry cutter. If you don’t have a french fry cutter, then you can use a knife to cut the potato into strips or wedges.

3. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cook spray and arrange your french fries onto it in a single layer. Spray the tops of the fries lightly with cook spray.

4. Bake your homemade french fries in the oven at 350ºF/180ºC until they are soft and the tips begin to brown.

5. Lightly sprinkle salt or other seasoning on your french fries and enjoy!
