This technique is so great! I loved how crispy and brown the fries got and how yummy they tasted. I have to admit that I didnt dry my fries too well after the soaking (just hurriedly with a paper towel), but it still worked out nicely.
I reduced the oil a tad and only baked these at 400?F for 30 minutes which was plenty.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us!

475 is too hot. I have an accurate oven now, and mine were scorched after 20 minutes. 450 would probably be ideal. The potatoes were delicious in spite of the scorching, though. I used seasoned salt for the seasoning. I'll make these again, but with some adjustments. Thanks for posting!

Great fries! I like garlic-y fries so kept mine simple and just added garlic powder. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Thanks VeggieCook98 for a nice keeper. Made for New Kids On The Block Tag.
