Ingredients

  • 1 pound russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus extra for seasoning

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Cut the russet potatoes into 1/4-inch thick matchsticks. You can remove the peels, if you like, but we like keeping the peels on for extra nutrition. As you cut the potatoes, place them in a large bowl of cold water to keep them from turning brown. 
  • When all the potatoes are cut, drain the water and spin the potatoes dry in batches using a salad spinner.
  • In a large bowl, toss the cut potatoes with the olive oil and kosher salt. Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through and flipping the potatoes with a spatula, until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Season the fries with additional salt, if desired.
