Baked Heart Shaped Seasoned French Fries

February 11, 2014 February 11, 2014/ Morgan

This is about the lowest effort cutesy food you can make with huge results! My daughter was so cute about these. She said “Mama these are hearts. They mean luuvv (yes she says it like that!)” So we ate our love up with some ketchup (mustard for me!) and enjoyed our potatoes in yet another way! 

These will be perfect for serving up with some Easy Black Bean Burgers and a side of Asparagus with Creamy Lemon Dill Sauce or Sriracha Roasted Broccoli! Talk about a sweet healthy vegan meal! 

Hopefully the diagram below is clear enough to show you how easy it is to cut these. You cut the whole potato instead of each individual piece (that would take forever! No one has time for that!) 

And don’t feel limited by the seasoning blend I have here. Maybe try it with some Italian seasoning instead, or curry powder or even just salt and pepper. 

  • 4 large potatoes 
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder (salt free like this one!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat non-stick baking mat. Wash your potatoes really well. 

Below is my little diagram of how I cut the potatoes to make them into little hearts. Super easy!

You can use a manoline to slice them so they are all the same thickness. 

Toss with the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Spread into a single layer and put them into the oven. Bake for 20-30 minutes. I start to check after 15 minutes and then every 5 minutes after that. Recently I discovered that I don’t even need to flip them for them to turn out good. I just wait until they start to lightly brown in spots on the tops and sides and then I know they are done!
