These crispy baked french fries are so easy to make! Add your favorite seasonings – like garlic, onion, and chili powder – to crank up the flavor. It’s a tasty appetizer, side, or great for sharing with friends.



French Fries

  • 5 large russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp oil (olive, avocado, or coconut)
  • 2 tbsp seasoning of your choosing*

Recommended Seasoning

  • 1.5 tsp garlic granules
  • 1.5 onion granules
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Rinse and scrub the potatoes.
  3. Slice potatoes into 1/2-inch fries. Add fries to a bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for at least 10 minutes. After, drain the water and dry the fries with a towel.
  4. Add fries to a bowl. Drizzle oil over the bowl and use clean hands to evenly coat all of the fries. Add seasoning and use clean hands, again, to evenly coat all fries.
  5. Spread fries across both baking sheets in a single layer. Bake for 35-45 minutes, tossing halfway through, or until golden and crispy.


  • *Use up to 2 tbsp seasonings of your choosing. You can stick with just salt and pepper or create a blend of different spices and herbs. Alternatively, use my recommend seasoning blend!
  • Do not skip the soaking process. Soaking sliced potatoes in water helps to remove the starch. This ensures a crispy exterior once baked.
