These crispy oven fries are seasoned with herbs and spices. They're a fantastic side dish that's perfect for your burger.


  • 6 medium starchy potatoes, such as Idahos
  • EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil), for drizzling
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • Optional Flavorings (my fave is garlic and rosemary!):
  • Minced garlic and lots of minced fresh rosemary
  • Old Bay or Cajun seasoning
  • Chipotle chile powder
  • Minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, and oregano
  • Grated pecorino Romano cheese and pepper
  • Melted butter, parsley, and garlic
  • Malt vinegar and salt
  • Adobo seasoning
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Set a cooling rack over each of 2 baking sheets.

    Peel the potatoes, leaving a patch of the skin at both ends. Cut each potato lengthwise into very thin (1/8- to 1/4-inch) slices—the thinner they are, the crispier the end product will be. Cut those slices into strips that are just as thin.

    In a large bowl, drizzle the fries very lightly with EVOO—a couple of turns of the bowl should to do the trick. Season with salt and pepper.

    Arrange the fries on the racks in a single layer without crowding either rack.

    Roast 30 minutes. Remove the fries and increase the oven temperature to 425°F. Toss the fries in a large bowl with one of the optional flavorings (if using). Return the fries to the oven and bake until very crispy and brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
