let's eat // lemon rosemary baked fries


welp, foiled by pinterest.. again.
i really wanted to try this delicious looking recipe. however, i had no desire to boil tubs of oil and risk burning my house down for some dang french fries. so, since i had baked fries before, i thought i would use the main ingredients, and dream up a little something safer and probably cleaner. enter, baked lemon rosemary fries!

this lil recipe will serve 2 people, or one really hungry person (usually me).
i used one baking potato chopped in skinny 1/4" pieces, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and salt to taste.


mix olive oil and rosemary in a saucepan/pot (let's be honest, i really don't know the difference) and heat on med/high. cook about 4 minutes and set aside to cool.
once it has cooled down, dump it all in a large zip loc, add the lemon juice, mixy mixy, add the fries, shake em up and toss on a baking sheet.


this is where your house is taken over by the smell of heavenly rosemary, and at this time you might have to shoo away scavengers (cats, kids, etc.)


bake your fries at 400 for 35-40 minutes turning them halfway through.
serving in a paper bag is a nice way to sop up that extra oil and look like a chic entertainer.


if you {i really don't know how this would happen} don't eat the entire batch, i guess you can share, i only did because they weren't as good the second day. niko didn't mind one bit though.
