Homemade Crispy Fries

Homemade Crispy FriesJump to Recipe

This Homemade Crispy Fries recipe is similar to the potato wedges/Jo-Jos that you can buy in delis & convenience stores. Because they are oven-cooked instead of deep-fried they are healthier.

I serve these with a variety of different dishes, including:.
French dip
Crescent Dogs
Grilled Chicken and Peperonata Sandwiches
Barbecue Bacon Dogs

My husband dips his Homemade Crispy Fries in ketchup but I prefer homemade fry sauce. What’s your preference?

  • 4 medium Russet potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoon Vegetable or Olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Onion powder

  • Place potatoes in a clean, large bowl. Fill with ice cold water and sprinkle with salt. Place in refrigerator while you prepare the seasoning & preheat the oven.
  • Mix oil and the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl with a sealing lid (like Tupperware). You can use a large plastic baggie if this is not available.

  • Bake potatoes for 20 minutes. Using a spatula, turn potatoes. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
