Since I’m a kid I’ve had problems with fried food. However, my great-uncle Nane (who raised me) has always prepared the most delicious fries, that I allowed myself to eat from time to time. Since I live in Austria, I’ve missed his amazing fries, but I discovered this delicious version that resembles them. The best thing: they are as crunchy as normal fries, but because they are baked, they are healthier. Perfect as a side dish or as a snack for a party.


  • 3 big potatoes (approx. 700 g)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp fine herbs
  • 2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Wash the potatoes. Cut them in smaller pieces (keeping the skin).
  3. Put them on a bowl, add the oil, salt and the fine herbs. Mix them with a big spoon or with your hands. All the pieces should have oil and the spices.
  4. Put the potatoes on a baking paper, and cook them for 20 minutes.
  5. Flip the potatoes, add more oil or salt if necessary and cook for other 20-25 minutes. They should be crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside.
  6. Serve them immediately with your favourite dips.
