Lemon Rosemary French Fries

I have been able to bake a little more, and a little more in my new kitchen. Which has been completely amazing! I’ve only baked a handful of times in the new oven still, but I’m breaking it in! And one of the things I made recently are these Lemon Rosemary French Fries.

These Lemon Rosemary French Fries are so light, a little zesty, and would go with any burger. They’re even perfect for just a snack. I made a Chicago dog with them for lunch, the perfect pairing, so yummy! These fries are super easy to bake and will spice up your fry game. I’ve tested fries before at altitude and at sea level and these seemed to bake longer – but could be that I’m getting used to my new oven. So, I put a range for the time. Make sure to check yours after the second bake and bake longer if they aren’t golden brown. Get the recipe below for my Lemon Rosemary French Fries.

Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
