Skinny Ranch French Fries

I have the feeling I'm going to be making these A LOT this summer. I really don't think I've EVER had better french fries! The flavor between the season all salt and ranch work so well together! One of the good things about them, other than their flavor, is they're BAKED! No frying over here, not in this house. I can't wait to go to my in-laws this summer over the 4th and make these for our BBQ! We skyped them last night and my sweet father in-law said, "we will have a "cook & craft me crazy week."" Ha ha. I am PUMPED! It's so fun to make food for people who you know will  "ooo" and "ahhh" over it! I LOVE making summer BBQ food! Bring on the spring and summer! I am READY! 
By the way, we have about 12-18 in. of snow outside my door! But we need it, to say the least. I'm very happy to see snow. I would rather see snow now than be in a fire pit later. We had too many fires last year. So the more snow now, the less fires later. (I hope!)
Have a wonderful week everyone! Stop by again soon!





Skinny Ranch French Fries

3-4 Small/Medium Potatoes
1 T. Dry Ranch Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Season All Salt

Peel, wash and cut potatoes into strips. In a large ziploc bag place potatoes, ranch seasoning and season all salt. Zip up the bag and SHAKE! When fries are coated place on a VERY greased cookie sheet. (We use olive oil cooking spray) Spread out evenly. Place in the oven on BROIL for about 15 min. Remove from the oven and flip the fries with a spatula. Place back in the oven on Broil for another 4-7 min. Depending on how crisp you want them. 
The second time in they cook A LOT faster. So keep a close eye. Remove and eat quickly. If you are waiting a few min. Keep your oven on warm not broil so they don't over cook. The fries get cold fast, serve and eat up!
