Enjoy these crispy baked fries as a lively snack or side. Baking at this high temperature requires a little extra attention but it will be worth it. Season using a blend of 1 to 2 teaspoons of ground spices such as ginger, paprika or cinnamon, if you like.
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel potatoes and cut into matchsticks about 1/4-inch to 3/8-inch wide. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add oil, salt and pepper and toss until coated.
Spread potatoes on 2 large baking sheets in a single layer and bake 15 minutes. Rotate baking sheets and gently turn over potatoes. Continue baking about 20 minutes or until crisp. Watch potatoes and turn frequently to prevent burning or sticking to the pan. Serve immediately.
