Oven fries

Making oven fries is easy, it's just as easy as opening up a bag of frozen fries and it's definitely easier than lugging out the deep fryer or frying in a pot.

Here's how.

Heat your oven to 425

Peel and begin slicing your potato, not too thin and not too thick but most importantly they should be evenly cut.

Put all the potatoes in a big empty ice cream tub or plastic container.

Drizzle cooking oil .. just a bit to coat them all. Sprinkle with salt.

Close the lid on the container and shake it all up until it's all coated.

Lay a parchment on a pan and pour the potatoes out onto the parchment. Use your hands or a utensil to lay the potatoes in one even layer all over the tray (not too crowded! this is the key)

Put the potatoes in the oven and allow them to bake until the bottom layer is brown then flip them over and let the other side brown .
If you have convention setting on your oven it's much easier you can just turn convection on and most of the time the tops and bottoms will brown at the same time and in half the time!

Once they're all brown take them out and taste, if they need another sprinkling of salt go ahead and give them a sprinkling.

This method words great for sweet potatoes too! They will often be a little less crispy and sometimes brown or burn fast because of the sugars so keep an eye on them.
