Have you ever made Crinkle Cut Fries at home? They are super easy to make and much healthier than the store-bought ones, which are typically pre-fried.
Without a doubt, the crinkle cutter has been one of my best buys ever! It’s super cheap, it’s small (it doesn’t take up much space in the kitchen such as other kitchen gadgets, looking at you Mr. Spiralizer), and fries taste SO MUCH BETTER when they are crinkle cut.
This recipe for crinkle-cut fries is super easy. Just cut the potatoes into form and bake them in the oven. This version requires no soaking or pre-boiling of the potatoes, frying, or whatever else you might find in other recipes.
I kept the seasoning of the fries very simple with just salt, and olive oil. I added chopped parsley on top after baking because I just love fresh herbs on fries.
Of course, you can add pepper, paprika powder, curry powder, chili powder, za’atar seasoning, poultry seasoning, or whatever your go-to seasoning for potatoes is.

Crinkle Cut Fries
- 4 medium to large russet potatoes
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped
- Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
- Peel the potatoes (optional). Wash them.
- Use a crinkle cutter knife to cut them into slices, then cut them into individual fries.
- Place the fries on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
- Add the olive oil, and salt on top. Mix the fries around until they are all coated. I usually fold one side of the parchment paper over and swirl them around (this way I don't have to get my hands or a spoon oily).
- Lay them flat on the parchment paper without overlapping each other.
- Bake the fries in the oven for about 25 minutes or until golden, flipping them around after 15 minutes. Enjoy them as a side dish or as a delicious snack with a dip!
