Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large baking potatoes, scrubbed, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons Essence, recipe follows
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and grease a large non-stick baking sheet with the vegetable oil.

  • Pat the potatoes dry and slice lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Turn each slice flat and slice again lengthwise into even fries, 1/2-inch thick. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until very light and foamy. Add the potatoes and the Essence to the egg whites and toss to coat evenly.

  • Spread the coated potatoes on the prepared baking sheet, not touching. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy; halfway through the cooking time, with a spatula, scrape the potatoes from the baking sheet and turn. Carefully remove with a spatula to a large serving plate, or individual plates. Serve immediately.
