Recipe: Baked Curly Fries

I got a new toy - a twin curl cutter.  It's fun, inexpensive, and while it leaves a lot of scraps, it's worth it (now... what to do with a pile of potato scraps?).  I love new toys.

What better to make with it than curly fries?  Mmmm!

Baked Curly Fries

4-5 potatoes
1 egg white
1 Tbsp your favorite spice mix (I used Teeny Tiny Spice Co's Vadavan)

 Cut the potatoes into twists using a twin curl cutter or other spiral cutter.  Put in a bowl covered with water.  Save scraps for another recipe (also cover with water, so they won't brown). 

Bring a large pot of water to boil with a little salt.  Put the potatoes in the water and let boil for 3 minutes.  Remove promptly and drain in a colander and cool for 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Whisk the egg white up slightly.  Put the cooled potatoes in a large ziploc bag and pour the egg white over them, coating evenly.  Add spice mix to the bag and toss to coat.  Spread the potatoes on a large baking sheet in an even single layer.

Bake for 18-24 minutes, turning halfway through, until lightly browned and cooked through.  Enjoy!
