Cut the calories with these at home baked fries. Don’t feel guilty when you grab second helpings of these! The crispy crunch from the fries pairs so well with the melted garlic goodness of the cheese.
What you need:
7-8 medium Idaho baking potatoes
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
coarse sea salt to taste
2 ounces light cream cheese
a splash of milk
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
½ teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon oil
1 ounce good quality shredded cheese of choice- I used extra sharp white cheddar
1. Preheat oven to 430. Wash, clean and dry potatoes. Cut the lengthwise in half.
2. Then cut the poatoe half three more times. You can keep the fries a long length like above or cut them in half to make them smaller.
3. In bowl, mix together egg whites, potatoes, season salt and chili powder. Mix around to evenly coat the potatoes.
4. In a baking pan ,spray bottom with non stick spray. Evening lay potatoes down on pan but do not pour all contents into the pan.They should be a little crispy but soft on the inside. Total bake time will be about 25-35 minutes.
For garlic cheese sauce- melt the cream cheese in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Whisk in the milk, garlic, seasoning salt, and oil until smooth. When smooth, add the cheese. Melt for another 20-30 seconds and whisk again until totally smooth, adding more milk to thin out the sauce to your desired consistency
