Homemade Oven Roasted Steak Fries

Homemade Oven Roasted Steak Fries

I LOVE french fries.  This point cannot be overstated.  I would literally eat them every single day, if I could. But I can't.  And I shouldn't!  So, as always my goal is to make my favorite guilty pleasures more healthy, simply so that I can eat them more often and not feel badly about it.   I have a long history making roasted potatoes; they are good.  But it wasn't until this week that I think I finally found a great recipe for making Homemade Steak Fries; yum!

This recipe comes courtesy of May 2016 issue of Health Magazine, page 52, in "Snack Makeover".  They call them "Oven Baked Potato Thins", but I'm happy calling them Steak Fries!  They look like it and taste like it and I want to enjoy them thinking that is what they are.  This may just be a mental thing for me, but if I think I'm eating "health" food, I just don't think I enjoy it as much.  Just me?  Oh well....

Here is my version of Health Mags Steak Fries Recipe:
(This doesn't seem to be posted online yet, but here are other good recipes from Health Magazine!)

-Preheat oven to 475
-Slice 6 Medium Yukon Gold Potatoes into Steak Fries
-Toss with 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 1 tsp of White Vinegar
-Sprinkle with Paprika, Garlic Powder and Salt (amounts to taste)
-Spread out slices on sheet pan
-Roast for 30 minutes, or until they brown nicely
-Eat alone, with Ketchup or Dijon mustard, or if you are looking for something really exciting, why not whip up some Sriracha Mayo?

PS.  Do not feel guilty about eating Potatoes - they are actually good for you in lots of ways.  Potassium of course, Vitamin C?  YES. Yukon Golds are my favorite because they are versatile and mild flavored.
