Baked Seasoned Fries
Recipe type: Side
Serves: 4
  • 3 large or 4 medium russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Wash the potatoes, then cut them lengthwise into ½" thick slices. Then cut each slice lengthwise into ¼" sticks. Fill a large bowl with cold water and soak the potato slices for about 1 hour. Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Preheat oven to 425ºF. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with canola oil to coat. Mix the cornstarch, smoked paprika, salt, black pepper, cumin, and garlic powder in a small bowl, and add to the potatoes. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated in the seasoning mixture.
  3. Place potatoes in a single layer on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets and bake for 40 minutes, flipping the potatoes halfway through. Check the potatoes and continue baking another 5-10 minutes until desired crispness is reached. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
- Bake time will depend on your oven, how thick you slice the potatoes, and how much you crowd the baking sheets. Keep a close eye on the potatoes after 40 minutes, as they can burn quickly!
