Who does not enjoy french fries? They are a great temptation to anyone trying to lose weight. If you want to make healthier fries that are less likely to ruin your diet, consider baking them.

Loosen these potatoes using a spatula, and then turn them and bake for about ten minutes. They are great with ketchup, have less calories, and they are so delicious you might not miss the deep fried ones. These “French Bakes” are from Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.
