- Peel and rinse the potatoes. Then cut them into sticks by cutting the potato in 4 or 5 vertical pieces, and then cutting each piece into sticks.
- Place them in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Allow them to soak, 2 to 3 hours. (You can also stick them in the fridge and let them soak overnight.)
- When you're ready to make the fries, drain off the water and lay the potatoes on 2 baking sheets lined with paper towels. Blot with paper towels to dry them.
- Heat a few inches of oil in a heavy pot to 300 degrees F. In 3 or 4 batches, cook the potatoes until soft, 4 to 5 minutes per batch. They should not be brown at this point! You just want to start the cooking process. Remove each batch and drain on new/dry paper towels.
- Once all the potatoes have been fried at 300 degrees F, turn up the heat until the oil reaches 400 degrees F. When the oil's hot, start frying the potatoes in batches again, cooking until the fries are golden and crisp. Remove the potatoes from the oil and drain on paper towels.
- Sprinkle with sea salt and dive in!

THE BEST CRISPY FRENCH-FRIES
This is not so much a recipe as it is technique. Get ready for some of the best fries you've ever eaten! The oregano is a must, IMHO, but if you haven't got it, do without. Your loss.

- In a large bowl, cover the potatoes with water.
- In a deep fryer fitted with a basket or a heavy medium saucepan, heat 3 inches of vegetable oil to 340°F.
- Drain the potatoes and pat dry with paper towels.
- Add half the potatoes to the oil and cook until they begin to blister and turn golden, about 15 minutes.
- Shake up the basket every once in a while (not too often - especially in the beginning when the fries are still soft), or run a fork through the saucepan to make sure fries are not sticking together.
- Spread the fries on paper towels to drain and cool.
- Repeat with remaining fries.
- (Fries can be made to this point up to 4 hours in advance of serving).
- Heat the oil to 375°F.

BAKED FRENCH FRIES
- 1. Preheat oven to 400*F. and turn at least once during the baking.
- 2. Cut potato into wedges. Mix olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder together. Coat potatoes with oil/spice mixture and place on a baking sheet and they need to be turned 1/2 way through baking.
- 3. Bake for 30-45 minutes in preheated oven. Cooking time and temperature will vary greatly on how thick you cut the wedges.
- My Note: Update: bake at 450*F., for 40-45 minutes, and turn at least once during the baking. If you use the 450*F. in the recipe, the fries will burn. I mixed everything in a gallon size ziploc bag. For the spices, I used freshly minced garlic (no onion powder), paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, and chili powder. I used 6 potatoes (4 russet, 2 sweet) and 1/3 cup oil. I have cut the potatoes into sticks like normal fries and then baked them for 15 minutes, turned them over, and baked for another 15 minutes (the whole time at 425 since they're thinner than wedges), and I must say these are the tastiest fries ever! I also added salt and freshly ground pepper and garlic salt, and didn't measure it out- just kinda put on as much as looked good, and wow, were they tasty! I think the chili powder was what really put them over the top, so don't be shy with it, and remember that seasonings seem to lose some of their flavors when baked (which means put on more than you usually would)!
- So, if you cut your wedges small and thin - you will need to cut the temp and cooking time. But if you cut true (thick) wedges - follow the recipes directions (although I strongly encourage flipping the potatoes halfway through the process). For a super easy cleanup - I poured the oil and spices into a gallon size Ziploc bag and mixed it all together until well blended - then I added the cut potatoes and kneaded and shook the bag until all the potatoes were well and evenly coated. Then poured it into a 9x13 glass baking dish lined with foil. Minor adjustments: I used paprika, garlic powder, salt, freshly ground black pepper, a pinch of chili powder - mine is exceptionally potent, and cumin) -- The second time making this recipe I added fresh minced onion - and that was a very tasty addition too!
- FOR THOSE WHO THINK THIS RECIPE TOO BLAND: Take one onion for every 3 potatoes. Cut it in half lengthwise and cut it into slivers. Take all ingredients, including the onions, and put them in a zipper bag. Knead and shake until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Proceed with recipe directions. The onions add quite a bit of zing as well as nutrition!
- I use my french fry cutter to cut the potatoes. I don't even measure the spices anymore. I bake them at 400*, for 15 min, then flip and bake for another 15 on the other side. However, I like my fries less on the crispy side, also using the french fry cutter makes all the fries about the same size for uniform cooking.
BAKED FRENCH FRIES
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Slice the potatoes into a french fry shape. Toss in a bowl with the olive oil to lightly coat. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet, so that the fries are spread evenly.
- Bake until golden brown, turning over halfway through, 25 to 30 minutes.

- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. The baking sheet should be large enough to fit a single layer of potatoes. If needed, use 2 smaller baking sheets. Set aside.
- If you like skin-on French fries, wash the outside of the potatoes well and cut into French fries. If you prefer skin-off, peel and cut your potatoes.
- Place the fries in a large bowl and wash with cold water to remove as much starch as possible. I like to rinse and drain mine about 3 or 4 times, or until the water runs almost clear. Drain well, then turn your fries onto a large kitchen towel or paper towels. Pat dry.
- Return the fries to a dry bowl, and toss in vegetable oil to evenly coat. Turn the fries onto the prepared baking sheet(s) and spread into an even layer, with little overlap.

What kind of fries are made in the oven?These french fries are made in the oven. Easy and fast, these Cheddar cheese fries are served with bacon and dipped in ranch dressing. Bacon fries are just something out of this world.
What is the best potato to use for french fries?Also, using a lower in starch potato such as red potatoes or Yukon Golds are a better choice than Idaho for crispier fries. Keep in mind the bake time will vary depending on how thick or thin you cut the potatoes.
What do you season your French fries with?I'm a french fry purist so only used salt to season, along with the oil and sugar. The flavor is spot-on french fry, no sugar flavor at all. I cut mine into batons and some came out tough on the outside. All of them were creamy on the inside, like a good fry should be. I'll keep playing with the cooking time to get the outside perfect.
