If you are looking for a healthy alternative to french fries, this recipe is for you. It uses much less oil than regular fries and the fries are made on the grill and not fried in oil. Here is what you need:
- 2 russet potatoes
- Tbsp of olive oil
- Tsp of lemon juice
- Tsp of pepper
- Tsp of seasoning salt
First you will need to clean your potatoes. You can leave the skins on or off. Leaving the peels on will add a bit of flavor and it also provides more nutrients as the skins are full of important vitamins and minerals. Once the potatoes have been cleaned, cut them into fries. You can cut them in half and then in half again to create wedges or you can slice them thinly. Once they are cut, sprinkle the oil and lemon juice over them. Let them sit for at least five minutes or so. Place the potatoes on a preheated grill and season with the pepper and seasoned salt. Grill the potatoes until they are tender and then serve.
