The Best Baked Fries EVER

I have tried honestly 10 different recipes for oven baked fries.  They never turn out right.  They very get good color. Or if they do, they don't have the right texture.  I was almost resolved to stick to buying the frozen ones in the bag.
But then I found this recipe and decided to give homemade fries one last chance.  Consider my search complete.  These are fan-freakin-tastic.  I can't say enough- just go get your potato on.

Adapted from this recipe

What You'll Need:
  • 3 Large Russet Potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 5 Tbsp Veggie Oil, divided
  • Salt and Pepper
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 475F.  Place potato wedges in a large mixing bowl and cover with hot water.  Let sit for 30 minutes.  
  2. Evenly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with 4 Tbsp of the oil, tilting to completely cover (or use a pastry brush).  Sprinkle pan with salt and pepper
  3. Drain potatoes.  Dry wedges by spreading on clean kitchen towels and patting dry.  Dry out bowl and put wedges back in there.  Toss with remaining 1 Tbsp oil and additional salt and pepper.  Arrange wedges on baking sheet in a single layer and cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes.  Remove foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, rotating the sheet after 10 minutes.  Flip each wedge and bake for another 5-15 minutes, until wedges are crisp and golden brown.  
  5. Once done baking, turn out onto paper towel to soak up grease.  Season with additional salt and pepper if needed
