Super-Crispy Oven Fries

Active Time: 5 Mins
Total Time: 35 Mins
Yield: Serves 4

These unbelievably crispy oven fries cut the grease and calories of a standard French fry and taste way better. While this process isn’t as fast as a deep fryer, the extra time is worth it. You can even parboil the potatoes ahead of time and wait until it’s closer to serving time to bake them. 


  • 2russet potatoes, cut into 3- x 1/2-in. sticks
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place potatoes in a large saucepan, and cover with water to 2 inches above. Place pot over high heat for 10 minutes (it will take about 8 minutes to come to a boil, and will only boil for a couple minutes). Drain potatoes in a colander, and dry on paper towels. 

Step 2

Toss potatoes with oil on a rimmed baking sheet, and arrange in a single layer. Bake in preheated oven until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.
