Posted on: 3rd Aug 2008

baked French fries recipe


  • 2½ kg potatoes (sliced, cut into wedges, strips like fries or halved if baby potatoes)
  • 3 tbs Carotino or olive oil (Carotino will give potatoes nice colour)
  • sea salt
  • other spices such as cracked pepper, garlic powder, thyme, dill, smoked paprika – optional

  1. Mix potatoes with oil, season with salt and optionally other spices.
  2. Bake in the oven preheated to 180°C (356°F), stirring from time to time, until golden brown.
  3. You can turn on grill option towards the end to make them more crunchy.

Serves 4-6 people as a side dish.


Taste good in Fries Supreme with some Cheesy Chive Sauce.

  2. Sounds superbly simple. Maybe I’ll try it with sweet potatoes. You’d want to put the slices in one layer, right?

  3. Thank you for the comments.

    Rosie – I’m glad to see you back online, I hope you are feeling much better now! :)

    Olga - not really, you can put them on the tray any how… just stir few times during baking. I tired also with sweet potatoes before, you can take a look at it here:

  4. Delicious, we always prepared in this way, but use canola oil.

  5. I prepare potatoes like this a lot, they’re great as you can add lots of different flavours too such as Cajun spice or herbs.
