Okay, I know that real, fried "fries" are impossible to beat. I don't have a deep-fryer though, and I try to eat as healthfully as possible. I've tried time and time again to bake "fries" with no success. I've used sweet potatoes, russets, and Yukon golds. I've tried soaking the raw potatoes in water. I've experimented with temperatures, and I've tried various recipes. The potatoes always turn out soggy/soft or burnt. I'm becoming convinced that crispy baked "fries" do not exist. Can someone please prove me wrong and explain how it's done right?
