Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • spatula
  • measuring spoons and cups
  • oven

Ingredients

  • 1 lb frozen french fries
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs Season All salt
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil (Optional step but it does make clean up easier)
  • Spread the fries out across the baking sheet
  • pour oil and season all salt onto the baking sheet with the fries
  • Using your hands, mix the oil, seasoning and salt well.  Spread the french fries out so that they are not touching as much as possible. 
  • Sprinkle with a small bit of additional salt and pepper according to taste.
  • Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes (refer to the package instructions for time and temp for your particular french fries)
  • Remove from the oven and serve hot

Notes

  • Make sure to refer to your own package of french fries for time and temp baking settings, as this will differ with different brands.
  • If you like your fries more crispy, allow to bake longer.
  • It's important to mix by hand so that the oil is evenly distributed.  Keep a towel close by to wipe your hands on afterward! 
  • Change up the season all salt with garlic or onion powder and cayenne pepper for a slight change. 
PRO TIP: Fries taste good and have an excellent crunch for about 10 minutes.  After that time, they start to become limp.  Plan ahead so that the fries are the last thing you are preparing and can serve them hot from the oven.
