Recipe by MamaJ
READY IN: 45mins




  • Bring water to boil in a saucepan over high heat. Add one teaspoon of salt.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Peel potatoes and slice into 1/4 inch fries.
  • Weigh the potatoes and measure out 9 ounces.
  • Transfer potatoes to boiling water and cook exactly 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Drain in colander and let cool (about 5 minutes).
  • Transfer cooled potatoes to a mixing bowl and add oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  • Mix gently to coat.
  • Spread in a single layer on a non stick baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden.
  • Turn every five minutes during the last half of cooking.
  • Add the remaining salt if desired. (I found them plenty salty without).
  • Note: Mine took 30 minutes to achieve the right level of crispiness--so check for crispness before removing from the oven.
  • Chef Alexander states that this recipe is equal to a medium order of fries and has 5 grams of fat (as opposed to 17 grams of fat in the original version).
