Better-For-You Baked Fries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; brush with 1 tbs olive oil; set aside. Cut 1 lb potatoes into sticks or wedges; don't bother to peel them (the skin is packed with nutrients!). In a large bowl, toss potatoes with 2 tbs olive oil, salt, and pepper, or follow the variations below. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until browned and tender, turning twice. Allow to cool slightly on the baking sheet on a wire rack before serving.

1. Rosemary: Use russet potatoes and sprinkle with 1 tsp snipped fresh rosemary before baking.

2. Chili-Spiced Sweet Potato: Use sweet potatoes and add 1/2 tsp chili powder to the oil mixture.

3. Cheesy: Use red potatoes and toss with 2 tbs parmesan cheese.

4. Golden: Try yukon gold potatoes; use 1/2 tsp sea salt.

5. BBQ: Omit the salt and add 2 tbs barbecue sauce to the oil mixture.
