The Perfect Oven French Fries


  • 6 Idaho potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 150°C.
  2. Rinse your potatoes and pat them dry. You must make sure they are completely dry before roasting.
  3. Slice potatoes into long, thin wedges.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, coat potatoes in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and a little pepper.
  5. Place on a baking sheet in a flat layer. Now here's the important part, make sure the potatoes don’t overlap or they will steam instead of crisp!
  6. BE patient! They can take up to two hours to cook.
  7. Flip often to ensure even browning. You may also want to rotate shelves in the oven to find the perfect heat.
  8. Towards the end of roasting you may increase oven to 200°C to crisp.
  9. Season with additional salt right before serving, if needed.

Recipe Notes

I serve these like “bread” with mezzo dips in my gluten-free home!
