To create crispy frozen French fries without having to cook them in a deep fryer, toss them with oil prior to oven-baking them. Simply placing the French fries into a preheated oven may be easier and less messy than using a pot or deep fryer filled with hot oil. The oil coating will give the French fries a golden appearance and a crispy texture without saturating them with grease and extra fat.

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 204 degrees Celsius.

  2. 2

    Place a piece of foil over a metal baking tray.

  3. 3

    Spray the fries in a bag evenly with an olive oil-based cooking spray, which will give them a crispier texture. Shake the bag to coat all of the fries with the oil. Omit this step if you prefer softer, less-crispy fries.

  4. 4

    Spread the fries out on the foil-covered baking tray in single layer. Cover the entire sheet with fries without overlapping any. Sprinkle the fries with any seasoning to taste.

  5. 5

    Bake the fries for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
