If you enjoy French fries but don't want to deep fry, then you are facing the same problem we have. Loraine after a lot of trial and error has created a method of cooking potatoes in the oven that taste like French fries, I kid you not!

What actually happens is that the potatoes fry in the small amount of olive oil that is used to coat them.

We do sprinkle some Italian spice blend seasoning on them, prior to placing them in the oven, which probably goes against all of the rules of French fry lovers, but we prefer that to the standard French fry seasoning of adding a ton of salt.



  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Peel potatoes and cut into 3/8 inch thick pieces.
  3. Dry the potato slices with a paper towel and place them in a bowl. Sprinkle with some peanut oil and the Italian spice blend. Toss them so that all of the potato slices are coated with the peanut oil an spice blend equally.
  4. Place a single layer of potatoes on a silicon mat laid on a baking sheet. Allow a minimum of a 1/4 inch space between the potatoes.
