Slice potatoes into ½ inch slices. Place in a large bowl and cover with water. Let the potatoes soak for 30 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and toss or shake with 1 Tbsp French Fry Seasoning.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss them around on the tray to make sure they are not sticking.
Raise the oven temp to 420 degrees F. and cook for another 15-20 minutes, or until fries are slightly brown and crispy.
Serve with ketchup or French Fry Sauce!
Soaking the potatoes helps draw the starch out, stops them from sticking together, and all-in-all creates perfectly crisp fries.
You do not have to peel the potatoes before slicing, however, you can peel them if that is how you prefer them.
The two best types of potatoes for french fries are Russet and Yukon gold potatoes. Yukon gold will produce a soft yet crunchy fry and russet potatoes give more of a classic french fry taste. You may know Russet potatoes as Idaho or Yukon's as yellow. Do not use a waxy variety like fingerlings or red potatoes
