Spiralize up a batch of these addicting crunchy fries that are baked instead of fried.
KITCHEN TOOL: Paderno Spiralizer (affiliate link)
As I’ve admitted before, it took me a while to jump on the spiralizing bandwagon. I couldn’t justify yet another kitchen gadget that I could clearly do fine without all these years in the kitchen.
Then on an Amazon Deal of the Day, I broke down and bought one. And now I use it at least weekly – most often to mix pasta with sauteed garlic zucchini noodles or to make this Thai Cucumber Ribbon Salad.Crunchy and oh so yummy: Baked Shoestring French Fries via @tspbasil Click To Tweet
But now my new favorite thing to make with it are these shoestring fries. Oh. My. SO good!
And these couldn’t be easier to make – 1) spiralize a potato, 2) toss with oil and seasoning and then bake.
I got fancy the other day and use Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel Seasoning instead of salt and that just took them to a whole other level flavor wise. Other seasoning ideas:
- Smoked Paprika
- Curry + Cumin
- Truffle Salt
- Italian Seasoning
- Rosemary + Garlic Powder
I’ve been enjoying them right out of the oven as a snack or a side dish to fish or chicken dishes. And more recently, I’ve been using them as a crunchy topping for soups (like Serena’s Baked Potato Soup) or salads.
