Oven-Baked Curly Fries
Clean potatoes and peel, if desired. Using a medium spiralizer blade, spiralize the potatoes. Cut the spirals into 3-inch lengths. Place in a bowl of cool water and let soak for 20 minutes.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Drain the potatoes and pat dry. Place the potatoes back in the dried-out bowl and add oil, garlic powder, smoked paprika, onion powder, pepper and salt; toss until the potatoes are well coated.
Divide the potatoes between the baking sheets, spreading into as single a layer as possible. Place both pans in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Stir the fries and remove any that are golden and crisp. Continue baking the remaining fries, stirring and removing any fries that are done every 5 minutes, until all the fries are crisp, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Baking time will depend on the thickness of your spiralized potatoes.
To make ahead: Prepare through Step 1 and let potatoes soak in water for up to 2 hours.
