Potatoes and French Fries are often viewed as an unhealthy. Yet, potatoes contain many nutrients important for a healthy diet such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, potassium and fiber. French Fries can be vehicles for saturated and trans fats and are often perceived as unhealthy. This is a low-fat, but crispy version that also offers some whole grain nutrition and extra fiber. The sneaky addition to this recipe is the added egg white which help the potatoes achieve a nice crispy and golden crust without relying on excess fat.
If you like to plan ahead, cut the potatoes up in the morning or on the day before and submerge them in water and store in the refrigerator, so they don't turn brown. Simply pat them dry and you are ready to go.
