french fries & ketchup is one of my favourite junk foods. i will judge a restaurant purely on the quality of their french fries. they are too simple of a dish to make, no restaurant should serve shitty fries. i will also take any excuse i can to consume a large amount of ketchup, because ketchup. these french fries go really well with the bbq turkey burger i'll be blogging about tomorrow;) they produce a crispy exterior and soft interior.


  • 4-5 yukon gold potatoes [can use baking potato too]
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • freshly ground pepper & salt


  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • rinse and cut potatoes into french fry strips
  • in a large bowl filled with cold water, soak cut potatoes for approximately 1 hour. this will remove all the starches and help the potatoes crisp up and brown.
  • drain potatoes and place on a baking sheet. let potatoes dry before dressing.
  • add oil and toss to coat completely.
  • add salt and pepper.
  • bake at 350 for 20 minutes, flip potatoes and bake for another 20 minutes.
  • turn oven up to 400 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes, until the potatoes become golden brown and crispy.
  • remove from oven and finish off with additional salt and pepper.
