Quick Dish: Sea Salt Oven Fries

Good morning, lovely people! It's a beautiful day here in DC and I'm getting excited for Saturday brunch, Halloween parties, and family dinner this weekend... I hope you have something wonderful planned!

If you find yourself searching for a great snack or side dish this weekend, I've got the perfect recipe for you - Sea Salt Oven Fries with white truffle aioli. Yeah, girl... you're fancy now!

See the full "Quick Dish" recipe after the jump:

Prepping this dish couldn’t be any easier – but I encourage you not to skip any steps! When slicing up your potatoes, be sure to soak them in ice water as the recipe suggests. This helps them lose some of their starchiness (which makes them crispier!) and lowers your cook time.

After patting them dry, you can then toss them in oil and salt to taste. I use canola oil – but you can use EVOO or even a flavor-infused olive oil for a different take. This recipe is easy to customize!

Final recommendation – don’t get frustrated if the fries stick to your cookie sheet… even if they look a little messy, they’re still going to be outstanding! And full disclosure – about 1/5 of my fries looked super messy/ripped up, so I didn’t photograph them. But boy-oh-boy – did I eat them!

Sea Salt Oven Fries

2 Large Russet Potatoes
2 Tbsp. Canola Oil
Coarse Sea Salt
2 Tsp. Chopped Fresh Rosemary


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Peel potatoes and slice into 1/3” thick strips (think skinny McDonald’s fries). Place sliced potatoes into a bowl of ice water and let sit for 10 minutes. Remove from water and pat dry.

Place dried potatoes on a cookie sheet and toss with the oil and salt (to taste). Roast until brown and crispy, turning occasionally, which takes around 45 minutes. Keep an eye on them and remove skinnier fries as they are ready, being careful not to burn them. Remove from oven and sprinkle with rosemary.

And if you're looking for a dipping sauce to go with these delicious fries - look no further!

White Truffle Aioli

1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Garlic Clove, Minced
2 Tsp. White Truffle Oil
Rosemary for Garnish


Mix your mayo, garlic, and truffle oil together in a small ramekin. Sprinkle with rosemary and serve as a side to your oven fries.

What do you guys think? Look yummy, don’t they? Pop them in the oven before your favorite show starts and by the time it’s over – a delicious snack is ready and waiting!

Until next week, my darlings!
