How To Make Crispy Baked French Fries

Have you ever wondered how to make crispy baked french fries without them burning? Here’s my trick to the ultimate french fries recipe without going near a deep fryer!


  • 2 large russet potatoes*
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • optional: herbs for flavoring like rosemary, thyme or herbes du provence


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut potatoes into fries about a 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Add fries to a bowl and coat with avocado oil.
  4. Spread out fries onto TWO parchment or silicone lined baking sheets. Do not overcrowd or attempt to fit all onto one tray.
  5. Sprinkle each tray with sea salt and herbs if using.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove trays from oven and flip fries. Swap racks trays were previously on and return to oven for 15 minutes.
  8. Flip fries once more and return to oven for 5-10 minutes depending on how crispy you like them. This time will vary as everyone’s bakeware, oven and potatoes are different.
  9. Serve warm.

*Use russet or yukon gold for the best texture. I personally prefer russet.
