Course: Appetizer, Side Dish
Keyword: french fry
3medium Russet potatoes
2Tbspcanola or vegetable oil
Rinse potatoes and then slice lengthwise into ½” slices. Lay slices flat and cut into ½” sticks. Place fries in a bowl filled with cold water; let soak for 30 minutes.
Drain fries and pat dry with paper towels.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
Using a large bowl, toss the fries with the canola oil until well coated.
Using a small bowl, add the cornstarch and seasonings; mix until well combined. Add this mixture to the fries and toss until well coated.
Spread the fries single-layer onto the 2 baking sheets. (Note: Do not crowd the fries together or they will not turn crispy!)
Bake for 20 minutes. Flip fries over and continue baking for 20-30 more minutes, or until fries are golden brown. (Note: The baking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fries. Watch closely after 40 minutes to prevent fries from burning!)
