Awesome Oven French Fries

Got this recipe from the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook, and made some tweaks.

  • 4 small baking potatoes cut into 8 wedges each (WW recipe says 1 1/4 potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch strips, but I like doing the wedges because it makes it easier to count out a serving.)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 teaspoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Place the potatoes in a bowl of water; add 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and all the sugar. Soak for at least 15 minutes; remove from water and blot with paper towels.
Toss the potatoes in the oil and paprika.
Place in the oven until potatoes are cooked and crisp. (WW recipe says 45 minutes for this.)
Top with remaining salt.
Makes 4 servings.
