I’m always on a quest to make crispy, oven-baked fries, and I’ve finally discovered a recipe that I really love. Not only do the fries come out nice and crisp, they are coated in a seasoning mix that really puts them over the top! They do take a little extra effort, but it’s totally worth it! The key is slicing your potatoes very thin–I aim for about an eighth of an inch. And don’t skip soaking the potatoes in water. This removes some of the starch from the potatoes and really does help them crisp up better in the oven. Just be sure to pat them dry before seasoning and baking.
The first time I made these, they were gone in about five minutes flat, leaving everyone at the table asking “Are there more fries?” Whatever the main dish was that night, it definitely was not the star of the show. The recipe makes enough seasoning mix for several batches of fries. I just keep it in an airtight container in my pantry so it’s ready to use whenever I get a craving for crispy, oven-baked fries.
