Let's face it, oven fries are boring. They're usually too dry or soggy. Never crispy enough.

I know the secret to perfect oven fries.

Want to hear it?

This works best with steak cut fries. Before putting them in the oven, paint them liberally on both sides with mild extra-virgin olive oil.

Then they come out of the oven with a nice crunch and a lovely oily taste, but it's a kind of oil that's good for you, so it's guilt free.

Enjoy your fries!

I also have had oven chip problems.

I found that a fan assisted oven increases crispyness. Also if you place the chips on a net rather than a tray.

Dude using so much oil is never a good thing even when so many virgins are involved.

Hmm...my secret is to not have any guilt and deep fry in lard.


But sounds good if the oven is the way you want to go.

LOL. Olive oil is good for you. It helps your health, which is why a Mediterranean diet has such benefits.

Try doing that with sweet potatoes, for something different. Sliced in wedges and seasoned with a little cumin and/or paprika or spice of your choice, sweet potatoes provide a little variety.

Also, try kale leaves, sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt. Roast 'em up crisp in a 450 F oven for a healthier alternative to potato chips. Seriously, they're quite good.

Deep frying can be a healthy way to cook, if you fry hot enough. Frying at the proper temp prevents the food from absorbing the cooking oil.

(Okay, "healthy" may be stretching it a bit, but you can deep fry occasionally without a lot of guilt if you do it correctly).

Oh, I LOVE deep fried food. I don't worry about the health drawbacks, it's more about not wanting to clean up afterward.

this is a good way to make fries

in Oz and britain we call them "Chips" which are about 3x fatter than a fry.

get your chip and lightly scratch the surface with a kitchen fork.
deep fry for 1/2 required time, allow to cool then re-fry till they are golden and crispy.

the scratching of the surface allows the grooves you create to go crispy since its thinner there


your an evil man majormalfunction, your posts in varios threads are making me hungry.

anyone know how i can start my own thread in "the yummy channel" ?
pressing "new thread" just brings a blank popup window up
