Spicy Baked Pommes Frites (Fancy French Fries)

What’s the difference in Pommes Frites (pronounced pahm freets) and plain ol’ French fries? Both mean “fried potatoes”. The French call them Pommes Frites and sometimes used the twice fried method for extra crispiness as well fry them in animal fat such lard or duck fat. When their called Pommes Frites, sometimes, that just means “a little fancier” which is the case here with the spicy flavor. Plus, it’s just fun to say!

Mine are Oven-Fried just because that’s how I roll most of the time. It has to be a special occasion for me to deep fry something. I’m Southern, but I tend to cook and eat on the lighter side…..unless it’s dessert we are talking about, then it’s over the top.
