These Crispy Baked Fries are oil free and super tasty. Serve them with a Mushroom Bacon Veggie Sandwich for a filling and satisfying meal.
I make these Crispy Baked Fries often, as a snack or as a side to a meal and my family loves them! The fact that they are pre-cooked is what helps make them so yummy. When you roll them around in the spices the precooked ends break up and the fries even break into smaller fries. That is OK, it makes them super yummy and crispy.
I originally saw the idea for making pre-baked fries on The Brand New Vegan’s site. My take on the recipe is to just throw in spices that I like and by using nutritional yeast they are crispy and gluten free.
The recipe is listed below the video I recorded of me preparing them on the fly along with a Mushroom Bacon Veggie Sandwich.
*Please note* the ingredients listed are approximate. I adjusted the spices by taste so make sure to adjust them to your own tastes.

Crispy Baked Fries
1 1/2 – 2 Tablespoons of nutritional yeast
Pre-bake 5 potatoes whatever method you bake potatoes in. I cook mine in a Potato Express because it takes only about 8-9 minutes. Once potatoes are cool to the touch cut them in half. Wet the knife between each cut to help them not rip. Let cool fully.
Once the potatoes are cooled, cut into wedges, again wetting the knife between cuts. Pour into a large bowl.
Mix the spices together then pour into the bowl with the cut potatoes. Put a plate over the bowl and toss around. The potatoes will break up a bit.
Turn the oven onto broil. Pour the potatoes onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Put into the oven on the middle rack and cook until brown, watch closely. Flip the potatoes over and cook until brown. Remove from the oven and serve. ENJOY!
