French fries sabbotage my weigh loss attempts every time. I can't help it. I love those warm golden brown strips of potato.
Here's a recipe we recently read in Esquire for oven fries - and let me say, they are fabulous. They are only 230 calories / 5 weight watchers points and you get to eat a ton of them!
Oven Baked Fries
2 Large potatoes (whatever kind you prefer)
2 T Olive oil
1 Coriander seed, cracked
1 t dried thyme
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Slice potatoes to so they are thick fries and toss in olive oil, coriander and thyme in a large bowl. Transfer to baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt. Bake 40-50 minutes until insides are soft and outsides are crisp and golden brown. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce. Serves 2.
