I bought a couple of packets of frozen fries and I absolutely can't fry them. My only option is to bake them. I have access to oil if necessary.
How do I bake the fries to make them resemble (as far as possible) the McDonald type fries ?
What I have tried:
Preheating oven to 250C, throwing them in (on a baking tray) till they look golden. Didn't work, they tasted weird and were soggy-ish. Maybe lack of oil? Citation Here
Same as above but with an added step before throwing them in : gently pouring oil over them and mixing them by hand. Result was not very different.
