These baked French fries are easy to fix and very low-fat. Use your favorite seasonings to flavor the fries, or simply sprinkle them with table salt or sea salt. Use Creole or Cajun seasoning or a seasoned salt blend.

You may also toss the potato strips with a few tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil before baking.

For a different shape, try these oven-fried potatoes.
