Baked Curly Fries for Superbowl Sunday

baked curly friesI’m hosting my first ever Sportsball Party this weekend, so of course I’m most looking forward to the food. Lucky me, I just got a spiffy new addition to my kitchen gadget collection, the Paderno Spiralizer. Along with making oodles of zoodles, the first thing I looked forward to making was a baked version of a curly fry. The widest setting on the Paderno was perfect for this! It worked with both sweet and regular potatoes, and I plan to experiment with other root vegetables in the future. Perfect lighter fare for your game day plans, whatever other decadence is served alongside them. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can certainly just cut the potatoes into regular-fry-shape and bake as directed.

Go Piggers!

Baked Curly Fries for a lighter version of a great Superbowl Snack.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Superbowl
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 4 Yukon Gold potatoes or yams (or as many as you like, really!)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • about ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley, optional
  1. Add garlic cloves to olive oil. If you happen to have an oil sprayer, this is the ideal way to coat the fries - put the smashed cloves in the oil inside the spray contaner. If not, just place them together in a small dish.*
  2. Preheat oven to 450.
  3. Peel potatoes if you roll that way (I sometimes do and sometimes don't).
  4. Push them through your snazzy spiralizer, using the widest setting, or cut into desired fry size.
  5. Spread the fries over a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat. Spray (or toss) with garlicky olive oil. You may need to use 2 sheets - don't crowd them too much or they will steam.
  6. Stir together remaining dry ingredients and sprinkle over the fries.
  7. Bake for 15-25 minutes, turning over once, until you get some nice spots of golden brown and the potatoes are cooked through.
  8. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Serve with dipping sauce of your choice
*There WILL be garlic-infused olive oil leftover. Use the next time you roast veggies, or in a salad, or in hummus, or however you like!
