To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
22 oz (about 3 medium) russet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-½” sticks
1 ½ tablespoons canola oil
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 475. Mist a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Place the potato sticks in a large mixing bowl and fill the bowl with hot water.
Let the potatoes soak for 10-30 minutes.
Drain the water and spread the potato sticks out in a single layer on a kitchen towel or layered paper towels.
Using another towel, pat the potatoes dry. Transfer the potato sticks to a large Ziploc bag and drizzle with the oil.
Seal the bag and shake/massage the potatoes until well coated. Open the bag and add the salt.
Seal and shake again until salt is well distributed.
Spread the salted potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake for 5 minutes and remove the foil covering. Return the potatoes to the oven and continue to bake for 15-25 minutes or until the bottoms are golden.
Remove the tray from the oven and flip the potatoes over using a spatula.
Place the potatoes back in the oven (rotate the pan as well so that your potatoes will cook evenly) and cook for another 5-15 minutes until golden.
Season with additional salt to taste if desired. Serve warm.
