Easy Oven Fries

Who doesn’t love fries? They’re crispy, flavorful, and oh-so-satisfying. However, going out for fast food or ordering delivery can be expensive and unhealthy. Luckily, making your own oven-baked fries at home is easy, inexpensive, and delicious.

This recipe for easy oven fries requires just a few simple ingredients, most of which you likely already have in your kitchen. The total time required for this recipe is around 1 hour and 25 minutes, but the actual prep time is just 10 minutes.

To start, you’ll need five baking potatoes. Make sure to scrub them clean before cutting them into slivers. Once you have your potato slivers, it’s time to season them. You can use any seasoning of your choice, but for this recipe, we’re using kosher salt, fresh black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and chili pepper. Drizzle three tablespoons of vegetable oil over the potatoes and toss until the potatoes are evenly coated with seasoning and oil.

Next, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the fries for around 45 minutes, or until they are soft. Then, turn up the heat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the fries reach your desired level of crispiness.

That’s it! You now have delicious, homemade oven fries. These fries are perfect for a homemade snack or as a side dish for your next meal. Plus, you can feel good about making a healthier choice by baking them instead of frying.

There are a few tips to keep in mind when making oven fries. First, make sure to cut the potatoes into even slices to ensure that they cook evenly. Second, use a large baking sheet or two smaller sheets to spread the fries out in a single layer. Overcrowding the fries can cause them to steam instead of roast, which will make them less crispy. Finally, don’t forget to season your fries generously to give them plenty of flavor.

This recipe for easy oven fries is a game-changer for anyone who loves fries but wants to avoid the expense and unhealthy ingredients of fast food. With just a few simple ingredients and some patience, you can make delicious, crispy, and satisfying fries right in your own oven. So why not give it a try today and see for yourself how easy and delicious homemade oven fries can be?
