The secret to these baked fries being a successful fakeout to real fries: the paprika enhances the golden fried coloring, the sugar helps crisp up the outer coating of the potato, and the salt.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut the potatoes into "fries" by slicing them lengthwise 4 times, and then slicing each slice another 4 or 5 times. Mix the oil, sugar and paprika in a bowl or large freezer bag. Toss the potatoes in the oil and sugar mixture and transfer to a baking sheet in 1 layer. Sprinkle with salt on both sides. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, turning the fries over with tongs about halfway through.
