Which potato is best for French fries?
When it comes to which potato to use for your Crispy Baked French Fries, you have three options: Yukon Gold, red or Russet.
How to cut potatoes for fries
- In order for your fries to bake evenly, it’s important for them to be cut the same size.
- Don’t cut your fries too thin (like a matchstick), or they may burn. We’ve found fries that were around 1/2-inch wide or 3 to 4 inches in length worked best.
Some delicious sauces for dipping:Print
Baked fries are a delicious and much healthier alternative to deep-fried fries. These delicious fries are guilt-free and go GREAT with grass-fed meat. Season to your taste and flavor your fries to YOUR liking! What are you waiting for? Get cooking and give your taste buds something to talk about.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Lightly grease baking pan with EVOO and evenly spread potato wedges on pan. Drizzle remaining olive oil to lightly coat wedges and toss wedges so they are evenly coated. Add salt and pepper.
- Choose any (or all) of the spices listed above and sprinkle on wedges, toss and spread the wedges out evenly. Our favorite is a little Old Bay or some cayenne pepper for a bit of heat!
- Bake wedges for 45 minutes in a preheated oven. Every 10 minutes, turn the wedges so they crisp up and bake evenly.
- If you like your fries especially crunchy, turn your broiler on high following the recommended bake time. Keep a close eye and flip the wedges every minute or so until they reach your desired crispiness. Serve and enjoy!
