Baked chips with parmesan and Italian basil

    40 mins

    These tasty chips will crisp up well in the oven but are heaps healthier than fried. Substitute another herb, such as oregano or parsley for the Italian basil if you wish.

    This was a great way to make homemade fries. I ended up adding all the ingredients into a ziploc bag and shaking it really well to evenly coat the fries. I placed them on a piece of foil (spray the foil so fries don't stick) on a baking sheet, and that made clean up super quick and easy. Great fries!!  -  15 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are a dream come true!! Great spicey healthy fries!! 5 stars all the way. I love them and they last well in the fridge a couple days and can be re-baked later. ****JUST REMEMBER to grease your baking sheet--I used wax paper--with an olive oil spray or some other flavored spray so they don't stick to the sheet!! I didn't grease my sheet the first time and it was torture to have to throw away those tasty fries and only be able to slowly pick off some. But ever since, the greased sheet works like a charm... : )  -  22 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an awesome recipe for healthy eating. Top notch side dishes are always hard to find. I paired these with Asian Tuna Patties, another great allrecipes submission. I may never eat another french fried potato again. Why would I when only 11% of the calories in this recipe are fat calories? It doesn't get much better than that. In trying to eat healthy, these french fries are a perfect choice for a side dish. I will be talking about these and using the recipe for the rest of my living years. As others have recommended, I did bag the Parmesan cheese and dried basil, coating the fries in three batches. I added salt and pepper separately. Enjoy! This is one recipe I would choose any day of the week, healthy recipe or not. Mmm.  -  22 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
