Oven Fries


Quick and Easy Oven Fries This is a handy recipe anyone in the family can make. Experiment with different spices like cayenne pepper or curry powder to bring a new flavor to the table.

  • Serving: 2
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time:
  • 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 white-fleshed potatoes, medium to large sized.
  • Vegetable oil.
  • Cooking spray.
  • Salt to taste.
  • Spices (see Cook's Note).

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub the potatoes well but don't peel fully, pat dry. Using a paring knife, remove any bruised areas. Cut the potatoes into ¼ inch thick slices crosswise. Cut again. Fries should be no bigger than your index finger.

2. Spray a cookie or baking sheet with the nonstick spray. (A sheet with sides helps keep the fries on the sheet.) Arrange the fries in one layer, leaving some space between them.

3. Bake for 15 minutes before removing them from the oven and turning them. Bake for another 10 minutes or until they turn golden brown. (If fries aren't browning, raise heat to 425 degrees F.) Sprinkle with salt or spices.

Cook's Notes: Some spices to try are pre-packaged curry powders, creole seasonings, or even Italian spice blends.
