Homemade French Fries

I was inspired to make homemade french fries like these by Gwyneth Paltrow's recipe here. Really, these are just normal french fries with olive oil and sea salt, same way I make my potato bites, but her picture is what made me crave them.

Olive Oil 
Sea Salt 

Wash potatoes and soak them in cold water for 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. You can peel the potatoes, or not, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Cut the potatoes in half, then cut the half in half, and continue until you have spears. Place onto a sprayed cooking sheet and drizzle olive oil and sea salt. With a spoon, mix the olive/salt mix over the fries, until all the fries are coated. Cook potatoes for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn them halfway through cooking. Carefully remove from oven and transfer to a bowl with paper towel to remove extra grease. Let cool, then enjoy! 


  1. Yummm!!! Those sound so good!! :) Can't beat potatoes! :)

  2. So simple, yet so delicious :-)! Have you ever tried truffled fries?? It's my latest obsession! Happy Friday to you!

  3. I like to do this but add basil, garlic, and rosemary and dip them in sour cream. So delicious.

  4. Yum! Have you ever tried putting ranch seasoning over potatoes? Most. Glorious. Thing. Ever.

  5. If you're into the whole New Orleans vibe, homemade Cajun Fries are to die for! All you do is sprinkle a little Cajun seasoning over the hot, crisp fries, and voula!
