Oven Fries

A big plate of fries with plenty of salt, pepper, and ketchup is pretty darn good. But, if you want something easy, bake them in the oven. And if you want something different, try one of these three simple, yet flavorful options. Just toss the potatoes with oil, salt, and a seasoning combo, then bake according to the Oven Fries recipe.

Ingredients

SLICE:

TOSS:

For crisp oven fries, two things are important: Keep the oven hot and cut the fries as thin as possible.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 475°. Lightly coat three or four baking sheets with nonstick spray.

Slice a thin piece from one side of each potato, creating a flat surface. With flat sides down, cut potatoes into ¼-inch-thick planks. Stack planks and cut into ¼-inch sticks.

Toss fries with oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

Arrange fries in single layers on baking sheets. Bake fries 15 minutes, then flip and bake until golden, 20–30 minutes more. Serve fries immediately.

Seasoning variations:

HERB Mix 1 Tbsp. each minced fresh thyme, rosemary, and oregano.

CHILI Mix ½ tsp. sugar, ¼ tsp. each chili powder and cayenne, and ⅛ tsp. paprika.

CHEESE Toss fries with ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan.
