Fake Your Fries

Related To:

Baked fries can taste as good as the real thing. Here's the trick: Dip the potato sticks in egg whites whisked with herbs or spices before baking. Spread on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and coat with more cooking spray, then bake at 425 degrees F until golden. The egg whites dry out in the oven and make the fries extra crisp — without excess oil. Try it out in Food Network Magazine's under-500-calories Chicken and Cheese Poutine (pictured above).
