Top Review by Baby Kato

The fries turned out perfectly, you'd never guess that they were made in the oven. Tender, crispy, crunch and full of potato flavor. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Made for What's on the Menu Tag Game 2017.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place potatoes in bowl, wrap tightly with plastic, and microwave until translucent around edges, 3 to 5 minutes, shaking bowl to redistribute potatoes halfway through cooking. Transfer potatoes to cooling rack and thoroughly blot fry with paper towels.
  3. Coat rimmed baking sheet with 5 tablespoons oil. Transfer to oven and heat until just smoking, 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk remaining oil, cornstarch, and salt in large bowl. Add potatoes to bowl and toss to coat.
  4. Arrange in a single layer on hot baking sheet and bake until deep golden brown and crisp, 25 to 35 minutes, flipping potatoes half-way through cooking time. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate and blot with additional paper towels. Serve.
