- 2 large russet potatoes (1.5-1.75 pounds)
- 1 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (for serving)
- 1-2 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled (for serving)
- lemon wedges (for serving)
- tzatziki sauce (for serving)
- Preheat oven to 425 F.
- Wash and slice potatoes into long french fry strips. You can choose to leave the skin on or peel the skin.
- Transfer the sliced potatoes into a large mixing bowl and fill with water. Soak the potatoes for 20 minutes. Then, drain and pat completely dry with a dish towel.
- Place potatoes in a dry mixing bowl and add olive oil, salt, and dried oregano. Toss well to coat.
- Transfer potatoes to a large half sheet baking pan in an even layer. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the bottom is crispy brown. Turn on the broiler to high and broil for 2-3 minutes until the top is brown and crispy too.
- Use a turner to carefully transfer the french fries to a serving dish. Top with chopped parsley, crumbled feta cheese, and lemon wedges. Serve with tzatziki sauce on the side for dipping.
How to store fries: Allow the fries to cool completely before storing. Line a container with a paper towel (to absorb any excess oil) and store cooled Greek fries in the fridge for 4-5 days. For the best flavor, wait to garnish the fries if you know there will be any leftovers. However, fries garnished with cheese, parsley, and/or lemon will still keep well.
How to reheat: Spread fries on a baking sheet. Then, reheat in a 425F preheated oven for 10-20 minutes until warm and crispy.
