Recipe: Easy Baked French Fries

The potatoes do have to soak before you bake them so there is a 30 minute wait and the 30 minute cooking time makes less very less convenient than their frozen counterparts but they’re delicious and taste and feel just like they were fried without all the extra fat and oil needed to fry. They also take only 2-3 minutes of active work, mostly just chopping up a potato.

Easy Baked French Fries
Serves 4
  1. 2 large russet potatos
  2. 2 tbsp olive oil
  3. season to personal taste with: pepper, garlic, salt, paprika, rosemary, chili powder or any other flavor
  1. Preheat the oven to 450° and line a baking sheet with parchment or spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Cut potato in even strips, about 1/4"-1/2" thick
  3. Place all of the cut strips in a large bowl of cold water and allow to sit for 15-60 minutes, this will remove the excess starch in the potato and allow the fries to get extra crispy.
  4. Drain the potatoes and pat dry with paper towel
  5. Combine the oil and desired seasonings in a bowl, add the cut potato and toss to coat.
  6. Spread fries on a single layer on the baking sheet and cook for 25-35 minutes until done.
  1. You can sprinkle a little salt over them once they come out if you like that. Serve warm with ketchup or dipping sauce of choice.
