Oven Fried Frozen French Fries

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

These certainly don't taste as sinful as deep frying the fries, but it is an almost guilt-free alternative that tastes really good.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 bag of your favorite frozen French fries (I like steak fries of the new "fast food fries")
  • nonstick cooking spray (preferable the olive oil stuff)
  • chili powder
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Place fries in a plastic bag and spray thoroughly with cooking spray.
  2. Shake for a minute or so to distribute the oil.
  3. Place on baking sheet (I find a baking stone works best) and sprinkle lightly with chili powder, salt and freshly ground pepper.
  4. Bake at 400 until slightly brown and sizzling.
  5. Serve immediately.

These were very good and simple to make! I used a baking stone and they turned out nice and crisp! Thanks for sharing!

For an oven frie, this was very good. I had a problem making sure all the fries were coated with the spray though. I think next time I'll spray them on a pan or in a container. I used the chili powder and it had quite a kick. I also broiled them for a couple minutes at the end to try to crisp them up some. Thanks for posting - I will be making these again.

Made these the other night, they were fast, easy and flavorful. I will use this method from now all, sure beats standing by the fryer all night. Thanks for posting.
