Oven Baked French Fries
These crispy oven baked french fries make you forget all about deep fried french fries. They're crispy, delicious and healthy for the ultimate side dish.
Servings 4 servings
- 4 russet potatoes
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoons salt divided
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash the potatoes and scrub their skin to clean them as much as possible. Cut the potatoes into ¼-inch wide sticks
Place the potatoes in a large bowl and submerge with cold water. Soak for 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes and dry very well using paper towels or a kitchen towel.
Transfer the dried potatoes to the prepared baking sheet. Add olive oil and season with 1 teaspoon salt, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper. Toss well to coat.
Arrange fries in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure they aren’t touching too much. This is key in helping them cook evenly and get crispy.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, tossing at the halfway point to ensure even baking.
Season with the remaining salt immediately when they are done cooking.
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. They will not be as crispy as fresh out of the oven, but you can reheat them in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes or in the air fryer.
