Rosemary-Garlic Roasted Potato Fries

Tonight I made spinach feta turkey burgers again. My mother-in-law came over for dinner before flying out of OIA and I thought it would make a quick and easy meal...that and I can't get enough of them. As always, we had a great time hanging out and catching up on life. I am endlessly thankful to have such great in-laws. I know so many people get stuck with the family from hell and know it is truly a blessing to fit nicely in a family you don't actually share blood with. I'm pretty sure we are the exception and not the rule. You tell me. How do you like your in-laws?

I'm very excited because my husband's whole family will be flying down next weekend to visit for a week. I can't wait to get pictures up on that! Two of my siblings are adopted from China and just make for adorable photos that drive you to make gushy noises and giggle. They're just good blog material! ;-) But more on that next week...back to the fries!

These made a perfect healthy side for the almost healthy burger. Once you've made your own fries straight from the spud there is no turning back. It's quick and relatively easy, the only hard part is keeping one eye on them while in the stove.

Rosemary-Garlic Roasted Potato Fries

2 medium russet potatoes
1 large sweet potato
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Crushed Rosemary
1 Tsp Garlic Powder

1. Heat oven to 375.
2. Cut potatoes into fries (equal sizes). Toss in olive oil and spread onto a baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle and toss with rosemary and garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking.
4. Put in oven and bake, stirring often, until golden brown and crispy on the outside.


  1. Hannah! I'm so glad you posted this to go along with that delicious burger recipe you shared. Yum, yum, yum!

  2. Yum! These look super fresh and delish! I definately want to try :)

  3. I want to make these!!! I love sweet potato fries and rosemary.

  4. Whenever I've made fries from scratch, the recipe said to soak them in water first to make it more crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

    ...and to answer your question - the photo was taken by one of us but we can't remember which one! :)

  5. Great tip, Mina! I'll have to try that because I do struggle with getting them super crispy without them drying out a little. Thanks!
