Pre-Notes

    Make sure to handle the potatoes with a thin metal spatula in the oven. You need to loosen them carefully from the baking sheet so that the crusty exterior does not rip or stick to the pan.

    When sprinkling with spices consider sprinkling fries with a bit of corn starch, this will help the fries to crisp.
