Baked Homemade Fries
Recipe type: Side Dish
You can use any type of potatoes for these but I find that the Idaho potatoes turn out the most delicious as fries.
  • baking potatoes
  • cooking spray
  • sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Slice potatoes lengthwise into fries. The thicker they are, the longer they'll take to cook.
  4. Place sliced potatoes in a large bowl and cover them with cold water. Let them soak in water for 15 minutes.
  5. Drain potatoes and blot with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  6. Place potatoes on the cookie sheet in a single layer.
  7. Lightly spray the top of the fries with cooking spray.
  8. Sprinkle on sea salt.
  9. Bake in oven for 15 minutes then turnover fries and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The cooking time could be shorter or longer depending on how thick you cut the fries.
