Seasoned Oven Fries
Crispy homemade fries – baked, not fried! – tossed in a delicious spicy seasoning mix. The perfect side to burgers, sandwiches, roasted meat, steak and so much more.
This is my go-to french fry recipe! I’ve been making my fries like this for years and years! My family LOVES ’em!! These french fries are easy to make and really do get a little crispy on the outside just like a good french fry should!! Every bit as crispy and addictive as our regular fries, but with a smoky, spicy, super flavorful twist!
Baking fries is so much easier and healthier than frying. The clean-up is a breeze and by making them yourself you control the ingredients and save money too! Y’all know I love that!
This recipe takes a little planning to prep the fries before they are ready to bake, but it’s worth it!!
Some Tricks to make Crispy Seasoned Oven Fries
Here’s one very important trick I’ve learned for making the perfect batch of french fries: Soak ’em. Soak ’em good!
Soaking your potatoes will help remove a lot of the starch, which allows them to crisp up on the outside while keeping a soft potato texture on the inside. If I’m in a hurry, I’ll just soak them for 30 minutes, but I generally like to let them sit for several hours if I’m smart enough to plan ahead that day. Which rarely happens, but hey, I try!
Another good tip is to bake these on a wire rack so any additional moisture will drip down away from the fries. I use an oven safe cooling rack and place it in a foil lined baking sheet. This method works for me and keeps my oven clean at the same time.
A little bit of oil and a simple seasoning mixture are all you need for delicious baked fries that will go with just about any meal.
Sometimes I like to jazz up my fries with a little extra spice, some garlic, or a sprinkle of cheese, but this is a great basic recipe that I promise you and your family will love. Make sure you have plenty of ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce on hand, and you might even want to make a double batch… they will disappear quickly!
Bismillah, Let’s get started!
