Kid Friendly Homemade French Fries

I made these Kid Friendly Homemade French Fries a few weeks ago and they were a huge hit with Jillian!  She loved being able to hold them herself and the soft texture of the french fries made it easy for taking small bites.  I am always trying to find healthy alternatives to kid friendly foods and this has been my favorite so far!  No frying, just wholesome baked goodness.  Enjoy!

{What You Need}

  • 3-4 Large Russet Potatoes
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch Lawry's Season Salt (optional)

{How You Make It}

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Cut the potatoes into 1/4 Inch Strips.

Place the cut  potatoes into a microwave-safe dish with the water. Cook on in the microwave for 5 minutes on full power. Drain off liquid, and toss with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Arrange fries on a baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake for 30 minutes, turning once, or until fries are crispy on the outside.

  1. I make roasted potato cubes frequently. I'll have to try cutting them into french fry shape, microwaving first, and using a touch of seasoned salt like you've described. They look great!

  2. I do this a lot, too - so yummy!

  3. Homemade french fries are one of my favorite foods ever! I haven't made them in awhile & I normally fry them. I'll have to try baking them especially since I'm trying to eat better.

  4. Yummmm. SO much better then fast food fried ones!

  5. I need to do this again. Thanks for reminding me. Yum!

  6. The fries sound delicious Karen. I love the idea of the soft texture and of course no frying.

    Happy Easter! ~Melissa

  7. Yum! These also look pretty momma friendly & good for the waist! = )

  8. These sound so delicious and I can't wait to try them out on my kiddos...if I actually end up sharing them! :-) Thanks so much for joining us for Inspiration Friday!

  9. Found you through the April Blog Hop at Bloggy Moms.

    These fries look delicious! I will have to try them; I'm sure the little people at my house will love them.
