Baked Seasoned Fries with Balsamic Dip

After I had a plate of leftovers for dinner, I was still hungry so I went searching my favorite blogs for something tasty that I, of course, already have all the ingredients for. I remembered that I still had some potatoes left from the Downton Abbey party I hosted a couple weeks ago so I went on the hunt for a recipe for baked fries. Skinnytaste has become one of my go-to blogs for healthy recipes and I found her recipe for Baked Seasoned Fries. Easy, simple and I have everything I need for it.

My two favorite flavors right now are garlic and balsamic. To honor those two flavors, I made a few alterations to Gina’s recipe and pared it down to making a single serving snack size.

  4. Toss the fries until they’re coated and spread them out on your baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes and flip them half way through.
