Baked Fries:

  • 2 large Russet (baking) potatoes
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder Or swap favorite seasoning
  • 2 tsp salt

Spicy Yogurt Sauce (Optional):

  • ½ cup plain yogurt (whole milk preferred)
  • 2 tsp favorite (mild) hot sauce I used Cholula. Use more or less hot sauce depending on heat level of the hot sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Cut the potatoes into long slices, about ¼" wide and deep.
    Cut potatoes into long thin strips
  • Lay the fries in a single layer on an unlined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder.
    Place fries in a single layer on a baking sheet
  • Bake fries for 20 minutes, and then turn the fries. Bake 10-15 more minutes.  (Bake time will depend on how crispy you want your fries.)
    Bake until crispy
  • Remove fries from the oven, and sprinkle with salt.
  • If making sauce, mix yogurt and hot sauce together with a spoon.
  • Serve hot with sauce (or with your prefered dip).


Recipe is easily doubled or tripled for a crowd.  
Seasoning adaption: Try swapping garlic powder for your favorite spice blend. 
- I love these fries with Old Bay seasoning
- If using a spice blend with elements that will burn easily (like Trader Joe's Everything Bagel or their Nori Komi Furikake Japanese blend), add the spice with the salt after cooking.
