Got a craving for french fries but don't want to eat the grease and calories fried foods have? This healthier version eliminates all that oil while keeping the flavor.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Peel one potato for each person. Slice the potatoes in half, then cut each half into thick french fry-style wedges.

Step 3

Put one egg white per potato in a bowl. Dip the potato wedges into beaten egg whites, then place each wedge on a nonstick baking tray.

Step 4

Sprinkle with your choice of seasonings. Garlic salt, thyme, onion powder and other spices add to the flavor of healthy french fries. Add a dash of pepper and a little paprika if desired.

Step 5

Bake french fries for 30 minutes or until golden brown. When you remove the french fries, sprinkle with a little salt. Serve hot.
