If you enjoy healthy eating, you're going to love this oven baked french fries recipes.  In my humble opinion, homemade oven baked fries are much better that store bought frozen french fries.

There definitely is a noticeable difference in taste.  Homemade taste much better than frozen.

And are healthier for you too.

I also like to bake my fries to avoid all the clean-up mess that comes along with cooking with grease. 

When you cook in the oven your cleanup tasks are kept to a minimum so you don't have to worry much about your kitchen duties after you eat.

The recipe that follows is very simple.

Oven Baked Fries

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • salt and pepper

Recipe Instructions:

  1. Rinse potatoes under running cold water to remove dirt. Give potatoes a thorough cleaning before cutting into steak fry size portions.
  2. Before cutting your potatoes decided whether or not you will cut the potatoes with skin on. I prefer keeping the skin on because this gives the potatoes a homemade appearance and enhances flavor.
  3. After cutting potatoes, rinse them again under cold running water. Place french fries in a large boil cover with cold water and chill for 10 to 30 minutes. To prevent fries from darkening add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to water solution.
  4. After waiting period, remove fries from water and drain well. Next pat the french fries dry with a clean dish towel or paper towel. Put them in a dry bowl, then add sunflower oil and toss fries together until well coated.
  5. Spread the french fries out evenly on a cookie sheet and bake on center oven rack at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, turning once midway through baking. Bake fries until they are golden brown.
  6. Finally, add salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
