Oven Fried Curly Fries

I was intrigued by all of the spiral cut vegetables I had been seeing on the Internet. Zucchini noodles are everywhere! And people seem to love using them instead of pasta.

So…when I saw last week that Amazon was featuring the Paderno Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer as one of their sale items on Prime Day I took the bait.

I could have made zucchini noodles, a spiralized cucumber salad, or any number of low-carb healthy dishes. What did I make the first time I used my spiral slicer? Why, Oven Fried Curly Fries, of course!

My new kitchen toy cut the potato very quickly. It feels like a solidly-built gadget that will stand the test of time. We shall see.

The strips of potatoes were very long, so I cut them down to a more manageable length with a pair of kitchen scissors. After a quick toss with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt they were ready for the oven.

The Oven Fried Curly Fries were delicious and fun to eat! Bob totally approved and I know I’ll be making these fries again.

If you don’t have a spiral slicer, you could use a sharp knife to cut a potato into very thin fries and then proceed with the recipe. They won’t have the fun curly shape but they’ll still be tasty!

3. Put the potatoes in a bowl and toss with the oil.

4. Spread the potatoes out on a large parchment lined baking sheet. (I don’t know if the parchment paper is necessary. I had some, so I used it.)

5. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the fries over with a spatula.

6. Bake for an additional 5 – 10 minutes, or until done they way you like them.
