These unbelievably crispy oven fries cut the grease and calories of a standard French fry and taste way better. While this process isn't as fast as a deep fryer, the extra time is worth it. You can even parboil the potatoes ahead of time and wait until it's closer to serving time to bake them.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Place potatoes in a large saucepan, and cover with water to 2 inches above. Place pot over high heat for 10 minutes (it will take about 8 minutes to come to a boil, and will only boil for a couple minutes). Drain potatoes in a colander, and dry on paper towels.

  • Toss potatoes with oil on a rimmed baking sheet, and arrange in a single layer. Bake in preheated oven until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.
