- Crisp delicious french fries as good as your favorite (less healthy) fast-food french fries, below is a guide:
Making the Perfect Baked (Frozen) French Fries
- Put frozen french fries in a bowl and drizzle them with 2 tablespoons of canola oil or olive oil. Use hands to toss them around to make coating each piece much easier. Putting them in a bag and tossing them around should work too.
- Get foil that is one and one-half the size of your baking sheet, crumple it up, and line your baking sheet with it. (It's okay not to make it too flat on the pan.)
- Put the pan with the foil lining in the oven and heat it up to 400 degrees F.
- Take the pan out and carefully put the french fries in, spreading them out to an even layer, to make sure they do not sit on top of each other.
- Put the pan back in the oven and let bake for around 20 to 23 minutes.
- Take the pan out of the oven and sprinkle the french fries with salt and pepper, and a bit of herbs like parsley.
- To add a bit more flavor sautee a tablespoon of fresh chopped garlic with a tablespoon of Isigny butter and drizzle on top of the fries. Enjoy!
