What goes with the perfect char-grilled piece of meat as good as crispy perfect fries? Nothing. The problem is, how do you get those perfect fries at home? I have tried over and over again with my big pot of heavy oil and bags and bags of various brands, and even hand cut fries trying to get that Five-Guys crunch. Never quite realizing that ideal crispy perfection.

I have finally found the solution.

And the great news? They aren’t even fried. These little bites of perfection are crispy oven baked french fries. Yep, you read it. Oven baked. Who knew fries could be this easy? Kiss the deep fryer behind.
