You can help ensure the fries you buy are made from quality potatoes by looking for the "Grown in Idaho(r)" seal on the bag. Then, simply prepare the fries according to package instructions. Just remember to spread the fries in a single layer on a sheet pan when you bake them, and sprinkle with salt or other seasonings when they first come out of the oven to maximize flavor.
