How to Make Oven Fries That Are Actually Crispy If you want potatoes to be crispy without under-cooking the inside, the secret is to cook them twice.

Extra Crispy Fried Eggs Will Change Your Life Recipe We use plenty of oil here. You don't eat it all, but an abundance of hot oil gives the whites those delicious crisp, brown edges.

How to Make the Crispiest Roast Chickpeas Most recipes for crispy chickpeas call for canned chickpeas. I get why—a can is way handier than remembering to soak a bag of dried chickpeas—but I've found that chickpeas from a can never get as crispy as I want them, no matter how long I leave them in the oven.

Let them cook on each side until they’re golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes per side.
