Oven Baked Sesame Fries

BY : PUBLISHED : August 12th, 2015 UPDATED: November 16th, 2021

Sesame and potato are a fantastic combination! They compliment each other in flavor, texture, and nutrition. We sprinkle a healthy amount of seeds onto our fries before they bake and let them get nice and golden brown. The little seeds are nutritional powerhouses who not only make things taste great but also bring a nice helping of calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals. If you like sesame definitely give these a try!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound of yukon gold potatoes, unpeeled, cut into wedges
  • 1 Tablespoon of medium-high heat oil, avocado, grape seed, sunflower, etc.
  • 2 Tablespoons of sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon of potato starch, optional, but makes fries extra crispy
  • 1 Tablespoon of nutritional yeast, optional
  • generous pinch of salt, to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil metal baking sheet, or cover with parchment paper. Toss potatoes in all ingredients until coated, if seeds don't stick, drizzle with a bit more oil.
  • Spread potatoes on baking sheet in an even layer (the more room between the wedges the better) and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately with condiments of choice. Enjoy!
