Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 potatoes medium, cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp celery salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ketchup optional

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 450 degrees F
  • Lined a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Spoon the canola oil onto the parchment paper and tilt the cookie sheet to get an even coating of oil. Set aside
  • On your cutting board, with a sharp knife, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 4 equal wedges. Put in the microwave until they have reached a crisp tender. Set aside
  • Place flour into a shallow bowl. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, paprika, chili powder, and celery salt. Mix with a whisk or a fork to evenly combine the spices with the flour
  • Crack the eggs into a second shallow bowl and whisk them until light and fluffy
  • Use a fork to dip each potato wedge into the egg, making sure both sides are coated. Place the coated potato wedge into the flour mixture. Shake the bowl around to completely coat the wedge. Transfer the potato wedge to the prepared baking sheet
  • Complete step seven for the remaining potato wedges. When all the wedges are coated with batter, spray them with cooking spray
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Flip each wedge over and bake for another 15 minutes
  • Cool slightly and enjoy with or without ketchup
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Take It Down A Notch – If you have a Pre-K or young Tiny Chef, you can make it a little easier by scrubbing and halving potatoes. Pop them in the microwave to soften first. You can also put the flour and seasoning in a few Ziploc bags and add the fries to the bag (a handful in each bag) and have your child shake them until coated.
Kick It Up A Notch – While this recipe it fairly basic, it can be used to point out the importance of cutting items uniformly. Try buying an extra potato or two and have your child cut some pieces much larger or smaller than others. Compare the way they cook to the uniformly cut pieces.
