Oven Baked Fries

Andy and I are trying to eat a lot healthier. When cooking is both the husband AND the wife's hobby, someone is going to be in trouble!

Fixing your fries in the oven requires one must-have tool. We found this cutter at the Barn Restaurant Company locally in P-town. You can cut up fries in no time flat.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. After that, suction the cutting apparatus to your counter. I scrub my potatoes and leave the skin on. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and set it next to the cutter. Next, run the potatoes through the fry cutter. If they're a decent sized potato, allow one per person. If they're tiny, bottom of the potato bin small, allow one and a half to two per person. 
Spread the potatoes out in a single layer turning the peel side down and lightly coat the tops with cooking spray. Season with Lawry's coarse-ground garlic salt with parsley flakes and grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until they reach the color you like. Typically you will see the potatoes bubble up a little and then they'll start turning a nice golden color.
