Baked French Fries

A year ago I went on a business trip to Brussels (and London after), and I have definitely been thinking a lot about those nine days in Europe this weekend!  Beyond the fact that it was a wonderful, fun, life-changing trip, the food was awesome. 😉  So to celebrate this weekend, I made Moules Frites, or mussels and chips, served with some delicious Belgian beer and a baguette to soak up the broth from the moules.  Here is the recipe for the fries, which is a tried and true one for me.


  • 2 russet potatoes, sliced thin (I use a fry cutter, because I have weird kitchen gadgets)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 400.

Mix oil, garlic and onion powders, chili and paprika in a small bowl.  Slice potatoes and toss with spice/oil mixture.  Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet, then sprinkle with salt and parsley.

Bake approximately 40-45 minutes, or until desired degree of crispness. 🙂
