Crispy Oven Baked French Fries

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 russet potatoes
  • 6 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 teas salt, plus more for seasoning

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place rack on the lowest position.

Peel the potatoes and slice them into 1/2" thick slices. Place in a large microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Heat for 3 to 5 minutes, tossing half way through until soft and edges are slightly translucent.

Remove the potatoes from the bowl and pat dry.

Coat a heavy duty rimmed aluminum baking pan with 5 tbs vegetable oil. Place in the oven 5 to 7 minutes, until the oil just starts to smoke.

Meanwhile, whisk 1 tbs vegetable oil with salt and cornstarch in a small bowl. Toss the potatoes with the cornstarch mixture and carefully arrange on the oil coated baking sheet.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, flipping half way through baking.

Remove from oven and place fries on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Sprinkle with additional salt if desired and serve.
