Oven baked fries recipe taken from Branny Boils Over. Don’t bother bout deep fried french fries, having to double fry them to achieve the crispy exterior and creamy interior, this recipe does just that, without having to use lots of oil for deep frying. Though bear in mind this is not low fat, in fact, quite a bit of oil is used as well, but just that much better by leaving it do its own thing in the oven most time. (30minutes of so of baking time for perfect fries)
Above is slightly trimmed potato(to remove eye or growing eye) cut into equal thickness, best to use Russet potato(US Russet), and soak in just boiled water for 15 to 30 minutes.
Dry the fries in kitchen towel
