Not so French fries...

Continuing on with this French theme, I initially wanted to make steak frites but was not brave enough to do any deep frying at home.

So here's the grilled New York steak and skinny oven fries we had for dinner instead.
I seasoned the steaks with Montreal seasoning a few hours before grilling. After they came off the grill and the meat was resting, I threw on a pat of truffle butter and some chopped flat leaf parsley. The "fries" I did in the same fashion as my usual oven fries, only I sliced them a lot thinner. The kids loved them!

Skinny Oven Fries
  • 2 large russet potatoes (longer ones work well for this), scrubbed and washed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Slice the potatoes lengthwise into long skinny strips, about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. (If it is too early to put them in the oven, you may soak them in a bowl of warm water while you are preparing the rest of your meal.)

Drain the potatoes and dry well with a paper towel. Dry your bowl out. Put the potatoes back in the bowl and toss to coat with olive oil and a light sprinkling of salt and pepper. Spread out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. 
When oven reaches 425 degrees, place the fries into the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until they are cooked through and just starting to brown.


  1. These look delicious! I'm going to try them for my 3 year old who's a fries fanatic. So much better than the drive thru or even my own deep frier.

    Even though he’s signed on as a Nike athlete for the rest of his life, this is a colorway of the adidas Superstar that stephen curry shoes even LeBron James could love thanks to its color scheme similar to his St. Vincent/St. Mary’s high school squad. We’re 100% we’ll never see Bron in a pair, but the similarities LeBron soldier 9 are certainly there, as the iconic shelltoe sneaker features a full grain leather upper in white with Irish-green accents and gold detailing for the branding and within the mesh tongue.

    The Lebron James Shoes latest Under Armour Curry 2.5 colorway, ‘Dub Nation Lights’, will probably be a hit. It’s yellow and blue — #DubNation — with a yellow-to-blue gradient and tons of splatters. That pretty KD shoes much ticks all the boxes.According to a reliable Under Armour source, this colorway will be here tomorrow, September 9, in limited quantities. There has been no mention of a price hike Kobe venomenon 5 for this colorway so retail will most likely stay at the usual $135.The linear pattern of the reinforced Curry 2.5 upper seems to help the yellow-to-blue gradient look proper, while the kobe bryant shoes marbled outsole and yellow-accented blue laces carry the color scheme through.There is no official word yet on what has inspired this particular Dub Nation colorway and we don’t have more photos Cheap KD Shoes yet.
