Homemade Baked French Fries
easy homemade baked french fries will become a family favorite!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
ice bath 1 hour
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 6 russet potatoes, cut into strips
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
Place the cut russet potatoes in a bowl with cold water and ice to cover the potatoes. Leave for an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Using a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes from the bowl and place on a towel to dry out. Pat dry.
On a baking sheet, put a single layer of dry, cut potatoes.
Drizzle with oil and stir to coat.
If necessary, use another cookie sheet for remaining potatoes. (usually I have 2 cookie sheets going at the same time)
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, flip and stir.
Turn the oven up to 450 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
If the fries aren't getting as crispy as you like, turn the broiler on and broil for a couple of minutes. Watch carefully!
These are delicious with Parmesan cheese and herbs!
