Oven fries

Oven fries are a go to for us. They’re simple, easy and everyone loves them. Sorry this recipe doesn’t include quantities, we never measure.


Bacon grease, canola oil or butter (in order of preference)
Salt & pepper
Smoked paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
  2. Cut the potatoes into wedge shaped slices. Put in a pot and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil and then immediately turn off the burner and drain the water.
  3. Melt the grease in a large shallow baking dish. Then spread out a single layer of potatoes. Flip so they have a layer of grease on both sides. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
  4. Bake for around 15 minutes. Flip each potato wedge and bake for another 5-15 minutes. They should be golden brown and a little crispy on each side.
