The BEST Oven Fries!

Do you love french fries but hate the guilt? Or just need an easy and delicious side dish? Then you must try the BEST oven fries out there! This recipe is a favorite in our house – I’ve been making it for years and no one ever seems to get tired of it!

It’s also a great one year-round.

These oven fries are perfect in the winter when there aren’t a lot of fresh veggies available and perfect in the summer alongside grilled burgers and brats!

Best of all, they are really simple!

Oven Roasted Fries

Step one: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.   Scrub your potatoes well – you are using the skin, so get all that dirt off them!  As for what type of potato – doesn’t matter – any kind you like will work just fine.  I typically plan a potato per person.

Step two:  Slice them into pieces – I make mine similar to a thick fry shape, but as long as they are similar in size, the shape is irrelevant.

Step three:  Place the potato pieces on a cookie sheet lined with foil and drizzle with olive oil.  Then, sprinkle some sea salt and cracked pepper on top.  I typically also sprinkle McCormick’s Seasoning over them too! Yum!

Step four:  Roast for 25 – 30 minutes, until they are tender.  You should probably flip them at least once during this time, but otherwise, they are hands-off!
