  • 4 Large Russet Potatoes Try to pick out nice uniform oval potatoes.
  • 4-6 tablespoons Peanut Oil
  • Handfull Fresh Parsley
  • Handfull Fresh Thyme
  • 8 quarts Cold Water
  • 1 cup Salt


  1. Cut 4 large russet potatoes into 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch x potato length pieces.
  2. Fill a large pot of water with 8 quarts of cold water. Add 1 cup of Salt.

  3. Soak fries in the brine for 30-60 minutes
  4. Remove fries from brine and dry on paper towels. Pat dry if needed.  You want the potatoes very dry to promote crispiness

  5. Coat 2 full sized non-stick pans with peanut oil. Add fries to pans, evenly spread out. Drizzle with peanut oil. Season with a light dusting of seasoned salt. Grind fresh pepper over the fries. Sprinkle with parsley and thyme. Flip fries and repeat.

  6. Cook at 450 for 15 minutes.
  7. Flip and cook for 10 minutes.
  8. Flip and cook for 10 minutes. (Some ovens cook faster than others, decrease or increase time if needed).  When the fries are golden brown and crispy to the touch, they are done. 

  9. Pull from oven when most sides of the fries are golden brown.
