Love French fries, but hate the fat and calories? Here's a delicious alternative that tastes as yummy as it looks. (Serves 2)

2 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound Yukon Gold or russet potatoes
3/4 cup finely grated Asiago, Parmesan or Piave Vecchio cheese
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Wash the potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 2 or 3 long wedges or spears. Peeling the potatoes is optional. Place the potato wedges in a bowl of cold water with at least 6 ice cubes and let the potatoes soak for 30 minutes. Drain, and pat the potatoes dry with paper towels.

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Place the egg whites and salt in a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine. Add the potato wedges and toss to coat all surfaces.

Spread the grated cheese on a large plate. One by one, dip the potatoes into the cheese, coating the all the surfaces. Arrange the potatoes on the prepared pan, making sure none of the wedges touch.

Bake until the potatoes are golden brown and fork-tender, 20 to 30 minutes. To serve, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper, to taste.


p/s: tak tau lah potato jenis apa yg saya guna hari tu. Main hentam je sbb dah ada dlm fridge ;)


  1. alahai.. kalau nak gemuk, gemuk jugak. setakat ganti french fries dengan wedges, apa la sgt beza kalorinya

    hahahaha.. beli kt kfc lg yummy. siap ada mayo ngan cheese lagi sbg topping.. haha (lemak2 pun gelak sama)

  2. Itu lah pasal. Bezanya cara potong je. Wedges lebih besar. Kalau potong secara manual tu cepat le skit siapnya.
    Nak justify...yg ni bakar tau..bukannya gorreng..
    He he..apa2 pun sesi mengosongkan fridge pada hari itu telah berjalan dgn jayanya ;-)
