Oven-Baked Frites


Martha made this recipe on Cooking School episode 403.


  • 4 Idaho potatoes (about 2 ½ pounds)

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons coarse salt

  • ¼ 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.
