… Homemade Fries Without a Fryer!
Do you love fries but have a hard time finding places to get them gluten-free? I do! I covet plump, crispy fried steak fries with a tender, fluffy center. And I regularly yearn for fries with more flavor than simple, plain fries. So I decided to stop the wanting-from-afar, and just create a recipe that I can easily make any time I want. This recipe fit my desires so well, I couldn’t wait to share it with you. So here you go. I hope your cravings for delicious gluten-free, dairy-free french fries now take you no farther than your own kitchen.
Herbed Roasted French Fries with Mustard Dipping Sauce
Stovetop cooking time: 10 minutes
Oven cooking time: 20-25 minutes
Oven temp: 375ºF convection bake or 400ºF regular bake
BBQ temp: If you don’t want to heat up your kitchen, you can “bake” these on your barbecue with the lid down, watching the gauge for the correct “oven” temp.
Makes four servings.
Ingredients for French Fries:
3 medium-large russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into wedges
3 Tablespoons grapeseed or extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano – McCormick’s spices are gluten-free
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon paprika
pinch of cayenne (red) pepper
Ingredients for Mustard Dipping Sauce:
3 Tablespoons lowfat mayonnaise – Hellman’s and Kraft are gluten-free (always check label)
2 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley
Preheat oven to temperature according to convection or regular baking, as stated above. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Drizzle 1 Tablespoon oil on foil. Set pan aside.
Heat 2 Tablespoons oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add potatoes to hot oil and toss in pan to coat potatoes with oil. Cook, stirring occasionally until all sides of fries are crispy and golden.
Add rosemary, oregano, basil, thyme, paprika, and cayenne to potatoes and continue cooking 1-2 minutes longer.
Transfer fries to prepared baking sheet, spreading fries so they don’t touch, and bake on center rack in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crispy on the outside and tender in the center.
Prepare dipping sauce, while fries are baking, by combining mayonnaise, mustard, and fresh parsley in bowl. Stir to combine and set aside to let flavors bloom.
Remove fries from oven when ready and serve hot with Mustard Dipping Sauce.
