Greasy little fingers are the worst. After whipping up a batch of these baked potato fries you’ll be happy to see that there is really no need to break out the wipes or hand sanitizer. This easy, no-frills recipe for baked potato fries is a great healthier alternative to the typically greasy fries. Plus, they go great with pretty much any dish, including Oven Baked Fried Chicken!


2 pounds russet potatoes

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Cayenne pepper to taste

Salt to taste

1 tablespoon smoke paprika


Cut potatoes width wise into 4-6 slices pending size, then lengthwise into fries, approximately 4-6 per width wise pieces, then toss with oil in a bowl, then add seasonings. Place seasoned fries onto a cookie sheet in a single layer and not touching one another.

Bake potatoes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Flip them and cook another 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
