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.

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

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Russet potato, scrubbed (skin on)
  • 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spiralize potato into thin strings (I keep them to 12-inch or less.)
  3. Toss potato strings, oil and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Grease baking pan with cooking spray and spread out so potatoes are barely overlapping.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and stir. Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until the fries are crisp to your liking.
  6. Cool for 5 minutes and serve.

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.
