Crunchy Baked Fries

Recipe by Chef Sweet Sal
READY IN: 45mins




  • Peel potatoes and cut them into evenly sliced "fry" wedges.
  • Set oven at 475 degrees.
  • Place potatos in large bowl and cover with warm tap water for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, coat 18 X 12 non stick baking sheet with 4 tablespoons of oil, and sprinkle evenly with 3/4 teaspoon of seasoned salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
  • Drain potatoes, and dry them completely on a triple layer of paper towels (keeping them dry here is key). Wipe out empty bowl, return potatoes, and toss with remaining 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Arrange potatoes in a single layer on baking sheet; cover tightly with foil, and bake 10 minutes.
  • Remove foil, and return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
  • In the last 5 minutes, check for doneness by using a spatula to check for a golden brown color underneath. Turn the fries, and return to the oven for a golden color on the flip sides.
  • Dab with a paper towel to remove excess oil, and sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper to taste. Yum!
