BBQ French Fries (DF, GF)

This is Day 7 of my Daniel Fast.

I'm on a french fries kick, so I've been trying out different french fry flavors!!!  My husband and I both LOVE eating french fries !!!  This is the BBQ version.

MMMMMMM...These are good !!!!  A little on the spicy side, so reduce the chili powder to 1/2 tsp if you don't like things spicy !!!!

The starch on the outside of the potatoes keeps the fries from getting nice and crisp. The outside can burn before the inside is soft - also giving the fries a "thicker crust". Eliminating the excess starch also keeps the potatoes from sticking together. The corn starch helps draw the moisture from the potatoes to help get a crispy outside.

2 large white potatoes, cut into french fries
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt or salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp corn starch

Place potatoes in cold water after cutting to reduce the starch.  Let them sit in the cold water for about 10-15 minutes.  Then drain off water.  Rinse the potatoes a few more times to get the visible starch off the potatoes.

Put the potatoes and other ingredients in a plastic bag and shake well so the potatoes are evenly coated.

Lightly spray a baking sheet with oil and arrange potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Bake at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.


Part of the Daniel Fast is praising God.....SO......
Praise God for he is:
great, glorious, good, gracious, guide, Godhead, grace

How amazing are the deeds of the Lord!  All who delight in him should ponder them.
Psalm 111:2 (NLT)
