Oven-Fried Potatoes | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Want to learn my secret on how to get your food to come out of the oven crispier?

Have you ever taken a food that the recipe said to fry and baked it instead to save a few calories? I’m sure all of us have done that a time or two. But unfortunately, what you usually get is not crispy at all, like the fried counterpart would have been. But there is a way to get those oven “fried” foods nice and crispy! All it takes is a baking sheet and a cooling rack. Just place the cooling rack on top of the baking sheet (you can line the baking sheet with foil to make clean up a breeze!) and set your food on top of the cooling rack. Into the oven it goes, and out comes crispy food! Since the food is up off the surface, the air is able to move around the food and keep it crispy, instead of getting soggy where the food would normally just lay on top of the baking sheet. Try it next time you are making some crispy chicken tenders or french fries at home – you’ll be amazed at the difference!
