  • 4 Idaho potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Cooking spray


  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place two baking sheets in oven. Peel potatoes; cut into 1/4-inch sticks. Place in a bowl; toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Carefully remove baking sheets from oven; coat with cooking spray. Divide potatoes between the hot baking sheets in a single layer. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

    Why are you spraying the cookie sheets, when they are hot? The instructions on spray can says to apply to cold sheets or cold cake pans.

    Frites are pronounced frits and here in Quebec we don't serve them with parsley either. :/ If you want a treat, try poutine. French fries with curd cheese and gravy poured over it all. Yummy but fattening!
