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. 🙂
