Crispy Oven Baked French Fries
With crispy edges, a pillowy center, and zero frying required, our Oven Baked Fries are a comforting accompaniment to your favorite burger or fish and chips — if they last long enough to make it to the plate.
Servings: 4 servings
- 2 lbs russet potatoes cut into ¼" sticks
- 3 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 450° F.
Clean potatoes and cut lengthwise into quarter-inch slices. Cut quarter-inch sticks from each of those slices and place in a medium pot.
Place potato sticks in a pot. Cover with cold water and add about 2 to 3 teaspoons of salt. Bring the potatoes to a boil for 3 minutes. Drain the water and ensure the fries are completely dry using a clean towel.
Return the potatoes to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat and transfer to a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, then flip and bake for an additional 10 minutes. (If necessary, bake the oven fries for additional time, in 3-minute intervals, until golden and crispy)
Once the fries are done, place in a bowl and season with additional pinch of salt and the chives. Serve with mayo and/or ketchup.
