    Don't kid yourself, you won't get them coming out like they've been fried.

      I googled, and I'm doing the soak for the first time, but I wondered if anyone had extra tips, that's all.

    I grease the pan and do them at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, flipping them half way.
    It's annoying making them in the oven because the edges might burn and smaller fries cook way faster than the bigger ones.
    You're better off doing them in a skillet and frying them or getting an air fryer.

    by soaking them in so much fat that you might as well have fried them and cooking them in an air fryer

    Whenever I bake or panfry potatoes I microwave them first until mostly cooked then let them cool a bit before cutting and using for whatever. They always come out crispy. A lot of recipes for fries tell you to cook them twice.

    Oil conducts heat very well, this is the principle behind deep frying. You can exploit the same principle by spraying fries with oil before they go in the oven.

      You don't, in order to get restaurant-style chips you need to double deep-fry them.

      You can more closely approximate the texture via air-frying or but they're never going to be the same.

    -pre heat baking dish (use something heavy that retains heat well)
    -parboil and then toss in a sieve to fluff up
    -heat a pan of oil and baste them with it throughout cooking
    -give them plenty of space between each other in the dish

    You buy a bag of frozen fries and cook them according to the instructions, maybe adding 2-5 minutes if necessary. They won't come out great, but they'll be crispy and not weird.

    should I always use a wire rack for baking fries, tendies, etc.?

    You can but for the amount of effort you might as well just do a few batches deep fried.
    Boil them fully cooked, being very gentle as you lift them onto a tray, then cool completely or freeze to retrograde the starch. Preheat the oven and a tray greased lightly with fat that's solid at room temperature, like beef dripping, and heat a generous amount of the same fat in a small pot. Spread the fries in a single layer and spoon the sizzling hot fat from the pot over, trying to coat each fry to set the surface.

    Use one of these bad boys. Baked fries get crispy from the pan side, so you have to use the right pan with proper seasoning.

      This type of pan is called 'Airbake' btw.
      Fantastic for crispy fries and for cookies.

    OP here. What I did was peel them, cut them, then soak them in water for 30 minutes. Then I dried them and lightly tossed them in almond flour. Then I baked them at 455, turning them every so often, for longer than you'd think. They were cooked but not crispy. So when I finally had enough, I used the 'speed broil' for about 4 or 5 minutes, and it crisped up pretty well. Then I sprinkled kosher salt on top. Thank you all.

      Those look soggy and not quite right, I suggest chucking those in the nearest garbage bin and starting over.

        They weren't soggy. Maybe it's the resolution betraying how good they actually were.

    Put a deep fryer inside the oven and deep fry them.
