Oven Baked French Fries

The magic of this recipe is the cooking method, not the seasoning. Here I posted a basic version but you can jazz it up with whatever you’d like!

3 medium potatoes and/or sweet potatoes, cut into fries that are 1/2” thick 
1 tbsp smoky paprika
1.5 tsp sea salt, divided
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Pour 1/3-1/2 cup oil onto a metal baking sheet – it’s should cover the entire bottom of the pan in a single layer. 
Place in oven, preferably on rack that can slide out of the oven. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
In a small bowl, mix together 2 tbsp oil, paprika and 1 tsp sea salt. 
Coat potatoes with mixture. 
Once oven is preheated, carefully open the door and slide tray out, place 1 potato onto the tray – if it sizzles, it’s ready. Add remaining potatoes to the tray in a single layer. Bake for about 25 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 20 minutes, until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. 
Remove from oven and immediately season with remaining sea salt.
