Fresh Herb-Baked French Fries with Creole Mustard

We don’t usually promote products, but I could never make Creole mustard better than Maison Louisianne’s Creole Mustard. If it’s not sold in your area, you can order it from Maison Louisianne Creole Products.

  1. 1Cut the potatoes into slices about 1/2 inch thick, then cut them 1/2 inch thick lengthwise into the shape of fries.
  2. 2In a large bowl, cover the potatoes with cold water, cover the bowl, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. 3Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. 4Thoroughly drain the potatoes in a colander. Pat them well with paper towels until completely dry.
  5. 5In a large bowl, gently toss the potatoes with the olive oil, herbs, chili powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. Transfer the potatoes to the prepared pan.
  6. 6Bake for 40 minutes, gently turning a few times, until cooked thoroughly and lightly browned.
  7. 7Drain the fries on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
  8. 8Sprinkle with a little salt, if desired, and serve with Creole mustard.

Beverage pairing: Roederer Estate Brut Rosé NV, California. Nothing like bubbles to make the experience of eating french fries even more lively, but it doesn’t have to be soda pop. This sparkler from the Anderson Valley brings light cherry-berry flavor and some pleasing toastiness to complement the baked fries. The flavors go well with the herbs, but the delight lies in the combination of textures.
