No-fry french fries

I saw this recipe of a web site designed by Mary Lou Retton, remember she was gymnast that won the gold in 1984.  She has some interesting advise and information about health and weight lose. Visit her site to see what she has to say. 
This is her recipe.

No-Fry French Fries
Serves 6


6 baking potatoes (Idaho or Russet)

1 tablespoon canola or olive oil

1 egg white

Salt and pepper to taste

Basil, cayenne, paprika, and/or garlic powder to taste


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick vegetable spray. Peel the potatoes (or scrub well). Cut into ¼-inch strips. (If you have time, soak the strips ice water for 20 to 30 minutes for crisper fries. Drain well and pat dry.)

In a medium bowl, beat the oil with the egg white until frothy.

Coat the potatoes with the oil/egg white mixture. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with seasonings.

Bake in the lower third of the oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until brown and crispy, stirring once or twice. Serve immediately.

I make a similiar recipe. I peel and slice the potatoes on a cookie sheet and sprinke with garlic salt, onion salt, and pepper.    The kids love them, so it's a great alternative to french fries.
