Double frying fresh cut fries is delicious! But sometimes we want to eat guilt-free fries, am I right?! So here is my oven baked French fry recipe!
Just like my double fry fries, I still fresh cut and soak them! I preheat the oven to 350-375. After about 30 minutes to an hour, I drain the fries. I lay them out to dry off a bit before I season them. I season with EVOO, salt, white pepper, black pepper, paprika and garlic powder. I think spread them out in my copper pan!
I popped them in the oven for about 30 minutes. I check to see their color first, and then mixed them around. Then I placed them back in the oven for about another 10 minutes to be a bit more golden brown. They came out pretty good. I think I may have squeezed too many in the pan, because not all sides were golden brown. Andy prefers them fried vs. baked. He is right, they do taste better fried. They just aren’t as healthy as baked fries.
But we popped his in the air fryer for about 5 more minutes. They came out a bit crispier and delicious.
The next day, I decided to reheat the left overs in the air fryer. Then I placed them on a foiled pan and topped them with some cheese and bacon bits! Pop that pan in the high broiler for a few minutes and we had the perfect cheese fries!!
I do still want to try my copper pan with roasted potatoes. I will make sure not to squeeze too man on the pan so we have a nice even roast on all sides of the potatoes. But for our homemade fries at home, I will probably be sticking to double frying them or air frying them. But if you have a baked french fry recipe, you think I should try – comment below!
