I know that someone posted about preparing baked french fries by coating the potatoes with potato starch. But I'm having trouble finding the post. Anyone remember this? Thanks.

Serenity. Baked French Fries are wonderful. The recipe is in the Healthy Heart Book. They are the best. However we have a variation that is easier although not quite as good. So here is a Favorite at my house.
Microwaved French Fries,
Wash a couple of potatoes. You can skin the potatoes or leave the skin on. Cut the potato into wedges or french fry shapes. Rinse and drain the potatoes with water (helps the seasoning stay on. Place a layer of potatoes on a microwave safe plate. (I use Correlle-ware but anything should do). If you should avoid salt try seasoning with one or two of the Ms. Dashes. (Mrs. Dash is the healthiest and can be very good, we like the original flavor and lemon pepper best) If you can tolerate a little salt or are making these for the SAD folks dust very sparingly with Lawry's seasoned salt. You can place another layer of potatoes on top and season again. Place in the microwave and cook on high. The time depends on the power of the microwave and the amount of potatoes. It should cook somewhat faster then if you were microwaving the potatoes as a baked potato. You should cook them until the potatoes are tender. For a large potato my microwave might take 7 minutes (whole potato) so cut up I will use four or five minutes. We noticed that we like them best when the corners start to wrinkle a little bit. Not too much or they will dry out.
These are really good and easy once you get the timing down.
If any one tries these let me know how you like them.
Again, these are not as good as Mary's Baked French Fries in the Healthy Heart Book, but these can be a close second.
