  • 4 large russet potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Cut Potatoes:
    • Cut the peeled potatoes into evenly sized fries, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in thickness.
  3. Soak Potatoes:
    • Place the cut potatoes in a bowl of cold water and let them soak for about 30 minutes. This helps remove excess starch, resulting in crispier fries.
  4. Dry Potatoes:
    • Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels.
  5. Seasoning:
    • In a large bowl, toss the dried potatoes with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Ensure the potatoes are evenly coated.
  6. Arrange on Baking Sheet:
    • Arrange the seasoned fries in a single layer on a baking sheet. For crispier results, make sure the fries aren’t overcrowded.
  7. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the fries are golden brown and crispy, flipping them halfway through.
  8. Optional: Use Cooking Spray:
    • For an extra crispy texture, you can spray the fries lightly with cooking spray before baking.
  9. Serve:
    • Once baked, remove the fries from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Serve them hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
