Baked Potato Fries, Part II

A few years ago I posted a recipe for Baked Potato Fries, which turned out to be tasty. Lately, however, I have started baking my potatoes at a higher temperature, and I find that they end up with a crispier skin. So, I wanted to share this new recipe with you.


  • 2 Russet potatoes, scrubbed, dried, and cut into 8 pieces (halved, then sliced into 4 pieces lengthwise)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Smoked paprika
  • Generous drizzle of olive oil


Toss the potatoes, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and olive oil together in a bowl. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with Pam. Arrange the potatoes cut-side down on the sheet in one layer. Bake at 425 for 35 minutes.
