What nutrients are in potatoes? If you eat them the proper way, potatoes nutritional benefits are very plentiful. They not only aid in bone health, but they lower blood pressure, increase heart health and reduce inflammation. Potato nutrients contain vitamins such as potassium, vitamin c, vitamin B-6 and fibre. These nutrients in potatoes work together to create optimal health and can actually aid in weight loss. People associate potatoes with deep fried french fries but if you eat them with wholesome ingredients they can be a great addition to a healthy diet. Shannon uses Russet potatoes in her crispy french fry recipe. Russet potatoes are a great option when choosing for a potatoes recipe. They not only taste great but they are particularly high in minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium.

Leaving the skin on your fries and using oil helps them become crispy on the outside. There are a number of different ways to cook potatoes. If you’re going for a healthier option, oven baked is definitely recommended. Baking is a better option because it requires less oil and does not produce the negative affects of oxidized oil. There are many different types of potatoes dishes you can create, this one in particular is sure to be a hit with your children or would make a splendid appetizer or side dish. The combined seasoning of cayenne pepper, garlic and black pepper create the perfect combination of savoury potato fries with a little bit of a kick. If you want to go a step further you can try substituting canola or vegetable oil with extra virgin. This contains less fat content and still does the job of creating a crispy potato skin.

We love this recipe because you can be versatile with the type of sauce. What’s great about potatoes is that they taste good in just about anything. Play around with the type of sauce you use.
