Sliced potatoes and sweet potatoes are tossed with paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder, and roasted in the oven for a healthy, baked version of two-tone fries.
Baked fries don’t last long at our house, especially these two-tone fries! Although, there has been one humorous exception to that rule.
About a week ago, I had planned to make some of these fries for dinner and was running late. As I was tossing the potatoes with the seasonings, I failed to notice that I had grabbed cayenne pepper instead of paprika. I put two whole teaspoons.
Yikes. Let’s just say we needed a lot of ketchup that night. I’m not sharing the accidental cayenne pepper version today though. 😉
These healthy baked fries are delicious and would make a great side dish for any summer cookout!
Two-Tone Baked Fries
- 2 medium russet potatoes
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Slice potatoes into fries about 3 inches in length and about 1/4 inch thickness. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with seasonings. Toss to coat. Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper. Spread sliced potatoes in single layer on baking sheets. Roast for 20-25 minutes, flipping once during roasting time, until edges are browning and crispy.
