Homemade Baked French Fries (the best kitchen gadgets to use)

Dinner always needs a side dish and you can’t go wrong with homemade baked french fries. They’re simple to make, tasty and let’s face it, the kids (and adults) love it! And baked french fries are a much healthier option for french fry lovers. 

Easy Homemade Baked French Fries

I’ve been making my own homemade baked french fries for years. I use to cut the potatoes with a knife but then I discovered some gadgets that make it so much easier and faster. You just insert the potato and it comes out in slices. Then you just season and bake.

I’ve been using the old version of the Starfrit Chipper but after so many years, it’s time to replace it and I’m thinking one of these would be perfect.

  1. Hello Salma,

    These French fries look yummy – but I’m not the cook in our family! My husband is 🙂 I make popcorn and salads – and now that fall is here, I make a mean chicken noodle soup full of fresh veggies and noodles.

    Bruce makes his French fries in a nonstick frying pan, with just a bit of olive oil. I’ll send him your link, and see if he wants to try them in the oven, now that it’s a bit cooler outside.

    In peace and passion,

  2. I tried the starfrit potatoe chipper. It’s pretty fantastic. Especially the red one…matches all my other kitchen appliances 😉
