Don’t you just LOVE French Fries? They are a definite favorite around here. Although French Fries often get a bad rep there are ways to make them that can be good for you! All you need is the right tips and tricks.
Now, we love our Veggie Sticks and some Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries but there is nothing wrong with potatoes too! Organic potatoes happen to be have some fantastic benefits. Potatoes are low in calories yet high in fiber. Because of the high B6 content potatoes can also help with depression, healthy sleep and they can help deal with stress. (source)
Unfortunately potatoes are not always prepared in healthy ways which cancels out any benefits. Thankfully, this recipe is free of any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives (this is one reason we love the Real Salt Seasoning Salt) and it is baked instead of deep fat fried. We like to grease our pan with avocado oil because of it’s high smoke rate. It also leaves no flavor.
The pressure cooker has been a real lifesaver for us numberless times and it comes to the rescue again for these delicious logs! The pressure cooker makes it fast, easy and keeps the heat down in the kitchen. If you don’t have a pressure cooker you can just boil the potatoes or bake them.
Resources for this Recipe:
Clean Eating Baked Potato Logs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 Tbs. Real Salt Seasoning Salt
- 2-3 tsp. paprika
- ½ tsp. black pepper (optional)
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 4-5 large potatoes
Cook potatoes according to instructions for your pressure cooker. It’s best to slightly under cook them if possible. We do ours for about 8 minutes. Let potatoes cool and slice into logs. Pour buttermilk into a shallow dish. Combine flour, Seasoning Salt, paprika and black pepper in another shallow dish. Dip each log into the flour mixture, then the buttermilk, then again into the flour mixture. Place onto a well greased enamel or stoneware cookie sheet. Bake at 425º until golden brown and crispy. Flip potatoes once during baking. Serve with ketchup, Best Ever Ranch Dip or Horseradish Sauce.
