Oven Baked Fries is one of those mix and dump recipes that everyone has in the back of their mind. This recipe is so easy, too, with only 4 simple ingredients.

I’ve found that baking fries this way is just as good as deep fat fried. And less fattening, too.

Four Simple Ingredients for Oven Baked Fries

  • Russet Potatoes
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Seasoned Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper

On Making Your Own Fries

When I make my own fries, I sometimes want thin fries. Or curly ones. Sometimes I prefer large fries, or even fries that are cut into wedges–like a fancy steakhouse. What we’re going for here are the fancy wedges.

Wusthof Santoku Knife

You can cut your own with a knife and cutting board. For this I would suggest either a chef’s knife or a Santoku Knife.

French Fry Cutter

Or, if you have a large family and everyone really likes fries, then you might want to consider investing in a French Fry Cutter. Like this one by New Star Food Service, which is made of heavy cast iron and stainless steel. I own a cheap version of this that I bought for $25, which I cannot recommend. It is hard to use and some of the spacers have broken. Invest in a good one!

When it comes to potatoes, Russet potatoes are pretty standard to use for French Fries. But I also like using Yikon Gold potatoes.

Sometimes, I will add grated Parmesan and chopped parsley at the halfway point, when I stir the potatoes. This is a delicious addition when you want something a bit more special for your dinner.

I prefer using Olive Oil rather than a vegetable oil, to give the potatoes more flavor. And olive oil is a healthier alternative.

Oven Baked Fries with Easy BBQ Chicken Bites

This recipe goes well with many dishes. I like these fries with Sloppy Joes, Hamburgers, Sirloin Steak, or Easy BBQ Chicken Bites.

French Fry Cutter
Baking Sheet
Aluminum Foil



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using a cutting board and Chef's Knife, or a French Fry Cutter, slice potatoes into wedges.
  • In large bowl, combine sliced potato wedges, oil, seasoned salt, and pepper. Mix until oil covers potatoes.
  • Transfer mixture to baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with a baking spray. Sprinkle with more seasoned salt and pepper if desired. Bake for 15 minutes. With metal spatula turn potatoes and bake for another 15-20 minutes until potatoes are golden brown and tender. Serves 6-8.


*Use your convection oven setting, if that's an option. It may not be necessary to cook the potatoes as long with this setting.
