  • Wash the potatoes well and without peeling them, cut them into large and thin pieces.
  • Put the potato slices in a deep bowl and season with salt, garlic powder, basil/oregano, cornstarch (optional), and black pepper. Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix well with a wooden spoon to stick the spices on each potato slice, on each side.
  • Pour the potatoes over a baking sheet with pre-placed paper and bake for 20 minutes at 220 degrees. Be sure that the fries aren’t overlapping, or else they will not cook evenly. Flip the potatoes on the other side and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack, then let the fries rest for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
