10 Points-friendly French fry recipes that totally hit the spot

Forget fast food and whip up these homemade alternatives, instead.
Published July 11, 2019

Sometimes you just need a French fry. (OK, a few!). While a small order of fast food fries can fit into your Points Budget, the rest of your drive-thru order could make a significant dent in your weeklies—and the same goes for the fries served at sit-down restaurants, where serving sizes can be huge.

Enter, homemade fries! Spoiler: You don't have to start with potatoes. Beginning with a ZeroPoint™ ingredient like carrots, green beans, or eggplant, can carve Points off your plate without sacrificing a bit of crispy, salty satisfaction. And if you're after the classic tater taste? There's a variation for you! No matter which recipe you choose, the key is to bake in the oven rather than cooking in a deep fryer; the final product will be better for you and no less bite-worthy.
