How to Make Crispy Fries Without Oil

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

Ready to learn how to make crispy fries without oil? If the answer is a big HELL YEAH, then I have great news for you! Here are two ways to make crispy fries without oil!

1. Reusable Baking Sheets

The first is reusable baking sheets. You can find these online through retailers like Amazon for a low cost. I love these because they are easy to use especially when you want to cook without oil. They are very affordable, durable, and last a long time. Mine is still working great after 2 years of use! The tip for baking crispy fries with this version is to:

  1. Prepare your fries by cutting them into whatever shape you like. Examples: Wedges, Sticks, Rounds

  2. Add seasonings of choice and toss until well-coated.

  3. Bake at 415°F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

That's it! Then dip those crisped potatoes in your favorite sauce, mine's mustard, and be on your merry way. I feel your judgement already. What can I say I am a major mustard lover. Anyways, this version is incredibly easy to do, takes less time, and tastes great & similar to fries with oil!

If you don't want to invest in a reusable baking sheet, don't worry about it because this next version of making crispy fries without oil is next level.

2. Baking Soda Boil

Over the years, I have cooked fries with my trusty reusable baking sheet. They taste amazing, turned a beautiful golden color, with a slight crisp, yet I still felt they were missing something. I didn't realize what that was, until I decided to one-day boil potatoes in baking soda-water mixture, toss them in seasonings, then bake them at a high temperature. Suddenly then, I realized...


It was missing the soft, fluffy inside!

The boiling them in baking soda helps darken the color of the potatoes naturally AND makes them incredibly crisp and crunchy on the outside while fluffy on the inside. Um, hello yes I would like you to SIGN. ME. UP. The full recipe is listed below and is definitely one you should try out at least once in your life.
