Oven fries with baked-on ranch seasoning are delicious on their own or dunked into your favorite dipping sauce. Get the video or written recipe—whichever works best for you!
These oven fries could not be simpler to make. Just sprinkle on my simple, 3-ingredient ranch seasoning, a little nutritional yeast, a little salt and some olive oil. Bake, and serve.
The recipe below calls specifically for russet potatoes. Russets definitely yield the best results when it comes to oven fries, but if you would like to use other types of potato, like red, white or purple, you definitely can. You won’t end up with a restaurant-style texture, but the recipe will still turn out tasty! Thin-skinned potatoes are a bit smaller than russets, so you may want to use 1-2 more than the recipe calls for, so you’ll have about the same total yield of fries.
You can also soak your cut potatoes for 30 minutes before cooking to remove some of the excess starch. Soaking is good, but it’s not totally necessary, if you’d like to eat your oven fries sooner. If you do soak, drain your potatoes, then transfer to a clean kitchen towel and pat them dry before tossing with the spices and oil and baking them.
Yields 4-6 servings
Ranch Seasoned Oven Fries
- 3 russet potatoes
- 2 teaspoons dried dill
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Cut your potatoes into about 1/4″ sticks. They should be about as wide around as your pinky, but longer is fine.
- Arrange the cut potatoes on a lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle on the dill, garlic, onion, nutritional yeast, and salt. Drizzle with the oil. then toss to coat well.
- Bake for 50-60 minutes, shaking every 10 minutes, until they’re browned and crispy. How long you cook really depends on how thick your fries ended up and on your oven. Ovens can be so finicky! During the last 10 minutes of cooking, check on those fries every 5. They’re done when they’re browned and crispy.
