Step 1

Scrub the potatoes and pat them dry. Slice into 3/8-inch thick French fries by first slicing potatoes into 3/8-inch thick slices and then cutting each slice into 3/8-inch thick fries.

Step 2

Place the fries into a bowl, fill with cold water to cover the fries, and let soak for 15 minutes.*

Step 3

Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 4

Take the fries out of the water and dry them very well with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels. Place on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 5

Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with the salt. Toss to evenly coat the potatoes with the oil and salt.

Step 6

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the pan with a bit of room in between each French fry. This helps them to crisp up as they cook.

Step 7

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
