Once a year I get a giant bunch of lemons and come up with recipes just to use them up. The best part of the lemons can be the zest — it brings out a refreshing taste in dishes that you wouldn’t expect.
By baking these in the oven you get a good amount of crispness and they are definitely healthier than frying!
4 baking potatoes
1/8 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons garlic
zest of one lemon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prep a baking sheet with a wire rack. Set aside.
Wash and pat dry the potatoes. I like the skin on, but if you don’t – go ahead and peel them. Slice the potato into stick-like fries.
In a bowl combine the potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic and lemon zest. Toss together and spread on the wire rack prepped baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes and serve!
