Description

We love these crispy french fries in our house. Never mind that they aren’t loaded with trans fat or submerged in oil—they simply taste really good, like an actual potato!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Russet Potatoes With Skins
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Or Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoons Granulated Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Parsley Flakes

Preparation

1. Line a baking sheet with 1” sides with non stick foil (this is key). Set aside.
2. Wash potatoes and slice into ½” fries. Place in a large bowl and cover with water. Allow to soak for 20 minutes to an hour. (This removes much of the starch and allows them to get crispy while in the oven.)
3. Preheat oven to 425F. Thoroughly drain potatoes in a colander; shake them up to release as much water as possible.
4. Put potatoes into a dry bowl. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil over, toss. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt, and pepper over potatoes and toss to coat. Sprinkle flour over potatoes and toss to evenly coat.
5. Spread out over cookie sheet without overlapping. Drizzle remaining tablespoon of oil over potatoes.
6. Bake for 25 minutes, remove from the oven and carefully give them a turn. Place back into the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until browned to your liking.

Sprinkle parsley over potatoes. Serve immediately.

Tried this this week when we grilled cheeseburgers. They turned out so well. I’m ditching frozen fries and going straight for these from now on! Also, on part of them I added some chives…and that was super tasty too.

Very good fries. You have to allow for a chunk of time but they ended up tasty and crispy!

These were very simple to make, though I had a hard time flipping them after 25 minutes but they were still crispier than any other oven fry I have ever made. We all thought they were delicious and I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for the great recipe!

i have been using a recipe like this for years to accompany all types of meat dishes or casseroles and it is just fantastic!! one thing i do recommend is to try sprinkling dry chicken/beef broth powder for seasoning– it’s extra delicious that way!! thanks angie!!
