Oven Fries

Total Time:
40 min
5 min
35 min

4 servings


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Preheat a baking sheet in the hot oven for at least 5 minutes.

While the baking sheet is heating, toss the potatoes with the olive oil and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Then dump the potatoes out onto a baking sheet, spreading to a single layer. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, shaking the pan every now and then, until the potatoes are cooked through, brown and crispy. Toss the fries in a big bowl with the parsley and cheese.

    We love these.. I am usually not a fan of baked fries, but these were perfect, They didn't stick, and after tossing them with cheese ; , ummmmum~Yummy.. Thank you!! 
    Yummy! Our 10 year old loved these too!
    I added a teaspoon each of garlic salt and sugar (to help with crispness. DEFINITELY bake these on a Silpat or parchment paper....otherwise STICK-CITY!
    i can eat these every night. i just love these
    Great! Kids loved it. Both boys had friends over for lunch the Oven Fries with Roast Chicken wen down in 2 secs. Even my French husband who hates unpeeled potatoes had seconds! Used a silplat on a cookie baking sheet no stick at all.
    I didn't have time to shake them as instructed but will be sure to next time or even flip them. They stuck to the pan but when they came off had the most deliciously golden undersides. Also, I didn't read the recipe ahead of time and just mixed everything in the bowl. The cheese turned out toasty and golden. I will do it on purpose next time even though it worsens the problem of sticking to the pan.
    Great taste, very easy. Followed the recipe exactly except that I use Rosemary instead of Parsley. I always double or triple the recipe. You need to watch the fries closely as cooking time will vary for each batch.
    Once again Tyler does it right. Never disappointed in any recipe.

    tip: use release alum foil to line pan--wont stick at all. yummmmmmm
    GREAT potatoes. Easy to make for a lot of people, but you have to watch them and pull them out right before they burn. Also important not to overcrowd the pan.
    These fries disappeared in about 5 minutes. I did turn the oven up to 460 as another suggested, and I put plenty of oil on the pan or they will stick. Used sea salt. In fact kids have requested them again tonight
    I used this as a base recipe for how to make the oven fries...and I've made so many delicious versions of this. The original is GREAT. But personally, I think russet potatoes have a dirt taste. I make these with yellow organic potatoes and it makes all the difference. I love making this with rosemary and cayanne pepper along with the parmesmean and parsley.
    Very tasty and easy!
    So easy to make, having small children I don't have alot of time for preperation. I added a few spices to kick it up a notich. This receipie is now on the weekly rotation, thanks Tyler!
    Another great and simple idea from Tyler. As he said "don't mess" too much. Turn only once so they don't break. He used Kosher Salt so add more or less salt or other spices to your own taste.
    This is my go-to home fries recipe. I like to add some extra heat with cayenne pepper. My boyfriend requests these fries every other week!
    These are really good. I could not get the cheese to stick to the fries and I have no idea why! I also added some seasonings to them to give them a little kick. My family loved them. Thank you Tyler!
    We made these with chicken burgers for dinner tonight and they were AMAZING! After reading some reviews, I also set our oven to 460 and baked for 35 minutes. I cannot BELIEVE how crunchy these fries turned out!!!! I have made oven fries before, but they have never really turned crunchy... these did! I added some garlic+herb and Creole seasoning before baking to add a little more flavor. ABSOLUTELY wonderful recipe! YUM YUM YUM! We will be making these again and again!
    This was the first let down I've ever had from a Tyler Florence recipe, and considering all the great reviews this recipe had I am very surprised by my result. These potatoes were awful! I'll stick to my usual method of roasting potatoes Ina's way, where I flavor them with rosemary and garlic before putting them in the oven.
    Just as advertised. I added some Italian herbs at the end, along with the cheese. Mouth-wateringly goo; crunchy, yet tender inside.
    I made these oven fries last night to go with steaks. I was planning on mashed potatoes but realized I was out of butter. These were delicious, super super easy and WAY healthier than my normal mashed potatoes (my butter obsession rivals Paula Dean's!). Will most definitely be making these again!
    These french fries tasted delicious with my cheeseburgers tonight. It is a quick, easy go to recipe to use up those last 2 or 3 potatoes. It makes you want to not ever buy frozen fries again. I added cajun seasoning to my fries for a kick.

    These came out so good. I will definitely make these again. This is the only way i'll make fries from now on.
    these oven fries were fantastic! crispy outside and soft on the inside. The key is heating up the pan in the oven for a few minutes before cooking as he mentions in the recipe. Also, I used a higher oven temp (460) and cooked on the bottom rack. I ended up turning mine a couple of times and total cook time was about 45 min for me. They got nice and golden brown - perfect!
    these were so easy and everyone loved them. the kiddos thanked me for making "french fries".
    Very good, slightly on the oily side. I should have tossed the fries with less than the 1/4 cup called for, reserved some of that amount for the hot sheet pan, like on the actual episode. I wish he had written that into the recipe, since I forgot that tip and only remembered after making it. Next time will heat sheet pan, then add layer of olive oil to hot pan, then coat fries with what remains. Only sprinkled salt on top of fries, didn't use cheese. Wanted to just test how good the fries came out- was very pleased. Will definitely make again. Thanks Tyler for soft and crunchy wedge fries.
    Made these last night for my adult children. What a hit! The salt and parmesan cheese make the simple potato a treat. I served them with chicken tenderloin sandwiches for a quick and easy supper.
    What a great, simple recipe! The addition of parmesan was a huge crowd-pleaser. I added a little fresh ground pepper.
    These were so yummy! They had the perfect amount of crunch and tasted so, so, so good. This recipe is about as perfect as perfect gets with oven fries.
    So easy and soooo good. Enough said.
