Expert Tips

For the crispiest fries, make sure the potatoes bake in a single layer.

Add some taco seasoning to ketchup or mayonnaise for a taco-flavored dipper to go with your fries.

For a fun serving presentation, wrap the fries restaurant-style in a cone of brown paper or cooking parchment paper.
