Healthy Homemade French Fries

by zesty on October 8, 2008 · 158 comments

Well – I was talking to my good friend yesterday and he said “Zesty…. why don’t you create a simple step by step way to create french fries – healthy style”.  So I thought to myself and said “self lets do it”.  If you’re anything like me – you love french fries.  Below you will find a simple step by step set of instructions on how to create delicious homemade french fries that everyone in the family will enjoy and are not that bad for your waistline.

Zesty tip:  I use a Mandoline for quick and perfectly cut fries.

Ingredients

  • 5 Large Roasting Potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

Method

  1. Begin with some nice roasting potatoes as shown here. While you’re doing that – lets preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Then Peel and Wash the potatoes to prepare for slicing.
  3. Here is my tool I use for slicing – If you don’t have this or a mandoline just use your knife and be sure to cut the french fries even in size to ensure even cooking.
  4. Once sliced, place the potatoes in a bowl and cover with water.
  5. I like to have the potatoes soak in salted water for about 30 minutes to release some of the starch and allow the fries to crisp up in the oven.
  6. After the 30 minutes elapsed – it is time we dry the potatoes. This is a crucial step. If the potatoes are not completely dry, they will not crisp up as nicely and the moisture will cause them to steam in the oven.
  7. Lets go ahead and lay the potatoes on some parchment paper, season them with salt and pepper and brush some olive oil on the tops of them. Once in the oven, ensure that you turn them periodically to ensure even browning. Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Here is the final product…. crispy and yummy! Get you favorite dipping sauce out and ENJOY!

Be sure to let me know your favorite french fries whether it be a favorite fast food chain or a special way you make them at home… Can’t wait to hear from you.

OMG! Those fries look amazing!

I like to make sweet potato fries that I season with cumin, cinnamon, coriander, chili powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper and some oil from my mister. I roast them at 450 for about 25 minutes. YUM!

Mmmmm…fries.

What brand of slicer do you have, and would you recommend it? I’m looking to get myself a mandolin (or at least put it on my Christmas Wish List), and I’m not really sure what I should be looking for in a good quality one. Should I go with plastic or stainless steel?

Reply

23 ZestyCook

Thanks everyone… looks like alot of people love the step by step instructions… I will continue to do that in my new posts where recipes are involved.

I do love sweet potatoes as well so maybe I will have to whip up a batch of those… I find they work best using the deep fryer method. Does anyone agree or disagree with that?

Thanks Again
Zesty

24 ZestyCook

Marianne – I would likely go with a stainless steel one. Mine is very old ( maybe 10 years old) As far as brands I am not sure which is the best. I added a link on the site to cooking.com. I think they are all pretty well even in quality if you stick with stainless steel. That would be my recommendation.

Hey Zesty, where’d you get that slicer? I’ve seen the ones that make super thin slices for potato chips but I’d love to get one of those. I do the same thing as you but I cut the potatoes (or sweet potatoes) into big fat wedges, like steak fries. These look a lot more like the classic fast food fries, great stuff!

your oven fries look wonderful. i’ve never used a mandolin to slice, but use a hand slicer that looks rather like a box. i like to coat the potatoes with a mixture of salt, pepper, and cayenne now and again for my own seasoned fries.

Thanks for this recipe! I’m going to make them tonight for dinner. Yes!
My favorite fry recipe is usually sweet potato fries made in the oven with olive oil and seasoned salt — but they always come out a little soggy. Your soak and dry method sounds like just what they need to come out crisp and delightful!

I don’t know if this constitutes as a french fry, but I cut mine leaving the skin on and then soak them in cold water. Then I rinse them and toss them in olive oil, a little seasoning salt, Mrs. Dash and Oregano. They are soooo yummy!

No choice of potatoes here in Thailand. I just buy fairly large potatoes, wash thoroughly, cut and soak in cold water for an hour or so. Dry and fry in Soy Bean oil or do the oven frying.

very yummy! I cut the potatoes a little to thin, its hard to cut evenly without a special tool, so some were a little crispier then others, but i thin it made them a nice blend of crispy and a little less crispy! very tasty!!

Okay this may seem like a silly question but my fries ended up sticking to the parchment paper. It was impossible to turn them. I ended up scrapping them off about halfway through the cooking time. Now they look bad. I am sure they will taste great, but how do I keep this from happening? The fries had oil all the way around them so I am not sure why this happened.

Reply

68 Alisha

I put mine in a bowl and toss them with the olive oil and the salt/seasonings and then put them on the parchment and it works great. :)

Reply

69 Carmen

These were really good! Instead of going by the recipe, though, I made potato wedges and baked for about 50 minutes. I put oil on the bottom of the pan as well as the top, and used salt and chili powder. Also, definitely leave the skin on. They’re a lot better that way : D

70 jen

was excited to try them only to find out i have no parchment paper….would it ruin the result? Can a foil be used instead? Sorry, silly question but I am not really a good cook so i had to follow what is asked. Thanks

Reply

71 ZestyCook

@Jen – I would be concerned that the french fries would stick to the tin foil. You could use a cooking spray or an olive oil toss to help prevent the sticking

Reply

no i will not ruin the result because i didnt have no parchment paper but it still came out great..

These fries look really good. I have wanted to try homemade french fries for awhile instead of the nasty ones you get at a fast food resturant. I would really like to try it with sweet potato but i am wondering if they would turn out the same way or if i would have to find a completely different recipe.

1) Choose an Idaho Russet potato. Russet Burbanks if you can get them.

2) Condition the potato by storing in a 70 degree environment for a couple of weeks (potatoes coming out of cold storage need time to convert sugars back to starch).

3) Cut the potatoes into the desired fry size, similar size the fast food places you prefer..

4) Soak the cut potato strips in room temperature water for at least 8 hours, overnight is good (this soaking plumps up the cells within the potatoes to result in an improved texture). DO NOT USE ICE WATER OR REFRIGERATE!

5) Dry the potato strips and fry in 300 degree oil until just cooked inside and limp, fry time is dependent on the thickness of the fry strip. Let cool.

6) Bring oil to 375 degrees and fry until golden brown and crispy.

7) Of course, use beef fat, properly twice fried fries will not soak up fat.
What’s the point of endeavoring to produce the very best french fry and then compromising the taste with a neutral tasting fry oil.

8) Important, work in controlled sized batches that doesn’t drop the frying temperature significantly.
Maintain the fry temp or the fries will absorb fat.

9) Rice Bran Oil is the best alternative to those that have a aversion to beef fat.
In & Out restaurants are noted for excellent fries, they fry in Rice Bran Oil.

How long does is typically required for the potatoes to be “completely dry?”

@Megan – I like to soak them and then pat them dry in a tea towel or paper towel. Letting them dry for about 10-15 minutes should be fine

We tried your fry recipe and they were really, really great. They were the best that we have ever made at home! Thank you so much for sharing them with us. The best homemade fries that we have ever, ever eaten anywhere in this world were at a little island themed restaurant over in NC, near Asheville, the place was called “kutcharitaville Cafe”. There we ordered their world’s greatest cheese burgers. “Oh” They were really the best burgers that we have ever sunk our teeth into, and we even had them MR, How Cool Is That? Anyway back to the topic. That place serves those awesome homemade fries with those killer burgers! They should also put up a sign that says, “The world’s greatest homemade fries too.” Cause they really were!
Another thing that they serve is “The World’s Greatest Key Lime Pie”. That pie is the best thing that I have ever put in my mouth!
The whole family agrees with that. Lets see, the world’s greatest cheese burgers, the world’s greatest homemade fries and the world’s greatest key lime pie. You might as well say too, the world’s greatest bar-with all those tall cool island drinks. All that together, in one place, I guess that you could call, “Kutcharitaville Cafe” of Kutchie’s Key West, “The World’s Greatest Restaurant”. The only thing I didn’t like about it was that crocodile there, watching us eat. That sort of gave me the willies. Kutcharitaville Cafe is a must go-to place before you die! And That’s A Fact. If I’m lien, I’m dieing. And like the VP said just today, “This is a Big F—ing Deal”.

The Best too you, enjoy…..Anthony Bourdain

Okay, I used a Progressive French Fry Cutter which I used to cut the potatoes, skin attached. I let the cut potatoes soak (but without salt) for about 15 minutes, then patted them dry with paper towels. I sprinkled Tony Chachere’s Cajun Seasoning (a staple in this family) and cooked it at 375º for about 30 minutes, then pulled the tray out to coat with olive oil. I did increase the temp to 400º and put the tray back inside the oven. I turned the fries over a couple of times during the next hour. The result is a nice batch of spicy fries. Love it! Love it! Love it! Thank you!

Hi Zestycook….I have tried these fries several times. My husband and I both love french fries and need to eat healthy. On all attempts to make these fries I have used our french fry cutter. I soak the fries in salt water for approx 30 mins and then cook for 1 hour. My fries come out really tough instead of nice and crispy. Any tips as to what could be going wrong? In your write up, you don’t say how much salt to use to soak in. I just pour some in the water out of my salt box and go from there. Any help you, or anyone else can give would be greatly apperciated. Thanks!!

Hello Zestycook,

I’m always looking for recipes that will ‘fool’ my kids into thinking they are not eating “Dad’s boring healthy dinners” and will probably cook a meal inspired by your chicken nuggets and fries recipes later on this week. I usually do a bit of a write up on my blog, and take a picture to show everyone how it came out – I will mention where I got the recipe/idea from (if ok with yourself) and point people to your site here, as there are some great recipes – well done.

I just started recently making homemade fries for the first time, but they didn’t crisp as much as I wanted them too. Now I realize I should have soaked them first in water. I wasnt sure if the temperature of the water mattered, so I pretty much used lukewarm water and it came out alright. I kept the skin on though, since I find it quite enjoyable. Well done recipe.

I got 2 useful extra tips.

tip1:For extra tasty fries add 1/2 tsp vinaiger (I use coconut vinaiger) into the bowl with the freshly cut chips and water and keep it for some few houres in the fridge, before baking.

tip2: For extra crispy french fries, bake it for 40 min., take it out for 5 min. and take it back in for another 5 mins baking.

i just made this… DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! one word though. At first I just put them on the pan and they started to stick. BUT luckily I payed attention to the “turn periodically” and I caught it in time. SO what i did is I put foil down on the pan (I use a pizza pan) and then I brushed the pan with olive oil and then i transferred my potatoes and it saved them. it turned out SOOO GOOOOOOD. SO CRISPY. i think these are more crispier then frying it. I followed all the directions. I brushed the fried with olive oil to cover all the surfaces lightly. then i put some salt and pepper. you can also add a little feta cheese and rosemary at about half way to make them EVEN MORE DELICIOUS. thank you.. MUCH EASIER than frying it and healthier since its olive oil and not drenched in animal fat…yuk. wow i just notice this post is from 2008. greetings from 2011! lol.

The reason they don’t taste the same is because McDonald’s deep fries the french fries. This is the healthier way (baking), so they won’t taste the same.

I’ve been trying to make “baked fries” for ages, and I think the salt water soaking and drying is what I’ve been missing. I’ve always just cut them up and stuck ‘em in the oven. My local fruit store has lovely potatoes and I always buy way too many. This is an awesome way to use them up. I don’t know a single human that doesn’t LOVE fries.
