Sometimes I share recipes over on Instagram…I figured what the heck, I might as well pop them up here too! I get a lot of requests for these Crispy Oven Fries so here’s the recipe.
Oven fries are a favourite here! We eat them a couple times a week and still, the family gets excited every time! This method works for a variety of vegetables. Try it with potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, beets, carrots, cabbage, or zucchini.
Choose between lard, olive oil, coconut oil or other high heat oil of choice. Remember healthy fats are good for you! Don’t be scared of them! Your brain needs fat to function! You can go up to ? cup of fat/oil for even crispier oven fried here…
Season your oven fries with herbs such as dill, oregano and thyme being favourite herbs. Cumin, coriander and paprika are favourite spices!

Tasty Side Dishes
Don’t forget the sides! Try some of these with your next meal!
Just made this today. I switched lard with butter (because I don’t have lard) and also added some Parmesan sprinkles after. It was literally ??
Just made these with lunch. Delicious!
I literally just made them tonight, they’re absolutely amazing. I used butter because I didn’t have lard and sprinkled some Parmesan when they came out of the oven ?????
These are so good! My whole family loves them and race as we eat them! The herb combination is just so good and not something I would have ever come up with. They are so easy too that I don’t have a need for freezer fries anymore so it is a much healthier option for our family.
I make these weekly. These are excellent! My whole family loves this recipe.
We add chili flakes to the pan for the grown ups:)
I make these fries often. I use olive oil in place of the lard and they are always crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. Just how we like them! The parchment really does make a difference!
Made these last night with the help of my daughter. So easy to make and taste so good. Even my picky one ate 2 helpings!
I’ve made these multiple times! I use coconut oil instead of lard and I love the subtle coconut taste!
This is the very first recipe of yours I tried a couple years ago, and it has now become a staple in our house! I also use this method for other root vegetables as well, like carrots and parsnips 🙂
I made a huge pan of these, instead of cutting like fries I used my wedge cutter and made potato wedges. We are on them for 3 days. So yummy.
I just made these with lard we rendered ourselves. I can’t stop eating them! So delicious!!
Two thumbs up! We love these. Minimal hands on time too.
We love these! I use tallow or ghee and a combination of the herbs and spices mentioned plus like 1/4 tsp of mustard powder.
Has anyone experimented with freezing these ahead of time?
I haven't frozen ahead but it would be interesting to know if anyone has. Potatoes can be tricky that way.
