Baked French Fries

Looks like I got this before it was placed behind their cooking wall.  It's so simple.  You also can add chili pepper, garlic powder, paprika or cayenne - whatever spices you with like.

I'm sure fries are really easy if you have one of those new air fryers - but if not try this one out.  I did 1/3 of the recipe with one medium potato.  It worked out well.

  • 1 ½ pounds russet potatoes (about 3 large), cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick sticks
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Arrange one oven rack at the lowest point. Place a large rimmed baking sheet there and heat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together potatoes, the oil, salt, pepper and any additional seasonings. Carefully spread potatoes out on the preheated baking sheet and return to oven’s lower rack. Roast until slightly golden and crispy, tossing after 15 minutes.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 425 degrees and bake 10 to 15 minutes more.

I do something similar, except instead of the oil I spray a foil-covered sheet pan with cooking spray.

It works with sweet potatoes, also.


I almost went with a Gordon Ramsay recipe, but you had to parboil the potatoes first.  He also had whole garlic cloves and rosemary on the tray as well.

Can you guys tell me what I can tell me the best things to convection bake in my brand new convection microwave? 


You would probably get more responses if you started a thread for this.  I'm sure others are in the same boat after the holidays.

From your mouth to God’s ear — will do!
