Step 3: Bake 'em

Picture of Bake 'em
Coat a rimmed baking sheet with 5 tablespoons of oil and place in the oven to preheat until just smoking - 5-7 minutes (just like we do for perfect popovers!).

While oil is heating up, whisk together remaining tablespoon of oil with cornstarch and salt.

Add potatoes to bowl and toss gently to coat.

Carefully arrange the potatoes on the preheated baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 25-35 minutes.  Halfway through baking time, flip fries to brown evenly on both sides.  

Transfer to paper towels to blot dry and enjoy with your favorite condiments!

A fine idea, Scooch!
Who says cooking is not a creative art?
Would a crumpled up sheet of foil do the same thing? Let me think - you'd have to heat the oil on it, toss the fries, then crumple it with a spatula or something, but you wouldn't have to wash anything. This recipe is groundbreaking!

I wish someone would invent an oven pan for flipping fries.
