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!
