These oven roasted fries are so easy to make. Roasting them turns them into crispy pieces of potato that will melt in your mouth.
I love how some of them are more like potato with a crisp exterior, and the smaller pieces are just straight-up crispy through and through.
Serve the traditional way with ketchup. There’s a truffle ketchup at Trader Joe’s that is awesome! Or make whole grain mustard aioli or burger sauce for dipping your fries. Enjoy!
