The elusive perfectly crisp baked fry.
Preheat oven to 475ºF and adjust a rack on the second slot from the bottom. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, cover potato slices with hot water and let soak for 10 minutes. Drain potatoes and pat dry.
Toss potatoes with remaining tablespoon of olive oil, rosemary, cayenne, smoked paprika, cumin and additional pinch of salt and pepper. Spread out into an even single layer on the baking sheet and cover with foil.
Bake for 5 minutes and then remove foil. Bake for another 10 minutes then rotate the pan. Bake for another 5 minutes then remove pan from oven, flip each fry individually and bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with more salt and pepper to taste and garnish with additional rosemary.

While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
This is a healthier version of the croquettes you know and love. Using leftover mashed potatoes they go together in a snap.
Serve Baked Potato Croquettes as an appetizer or as a side dish. Or they can even be a complete meal when served on a bed of Swiss chard, with a drizzle of Romesco sauce and a topping of crispy prosciutto!
