Lemon pepper inspiration
I cannot take full credit for the idea behind these wonderfully flavorful fries. My cousin Rita lives in a neighborhood called Gastown in Vancouver B.C.
The last time I went to visit her she took me to this restaurant she raved about solely for their lemon pepper fries.
So we went, and the fries were... worth the hype.
They had this incredible combination of spicy and sour that complimented the crunchy fries so well. So Rita and I were equally obsessed.
It's actually really had to replicate the lemon flavor they created.
It's definitely not the flavor you would get if you simply squeezed a lemon over fries. It was baked into them. And after years of research... I finally bring to you (and my cousin Rita)... Lemon Pepper Oven Baked Fries.
Reduced guilt fries
Okay... let's be honest. I never feel guilty when I eat fries. How could you feel bad while eating such an amazing creation? That said, there is one thing that I don't feel 100% awesome about while eating these crunchy potatoes, and that's the heavy feeling I get whenever I eat something deep fried.
Luckily, these lemon pepper oven baked fries take away any bad feelings, and leave you feeling light and satisfied!
They're baked in the oven, seasoned with 4 simple ingredients (salt, pepper, lemon, and oil), and make the ultimate crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside situation.
They go perfectly with soups, salads, and especially accompanied by a healthy serving of my favorite ketchup.Print
