Extra Crispy French Fries

Keyword: Gluten Free
Servings: 6 servings
Author: Denise


  • 4 lbs russet potatoes peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • Smoked paprika
  • Vegetable or canola oil


  • Peel potatoes and chop into strips, roughly 1/2”wide and 4” long.  (Note, I like to trim edges from potatoes after they are peeled and cut into planes.  From there, I slice the planes vertically and use the length of the potato as the length of my fries.  Also, for fun, I like to use a soap cutter that gives you the perfect crinkle cut design on your fries!).
  • Add potatoes to a large bowl and cover with cold water.  Generously salt.  Let sit for 30-60 minutes.  Once done, drain water and rinse potatoes.  Pat completely dry.
