Homemade natural cut fries, seasoned with a cajun spice blend and baked to a crisp perfection in the oven. They are so good and healthier than fast food fries!
Serves: 3-4
  • 3 large russet potatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons canola or olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • dash of turmeric
  • onion powder (optional)

  2. Wash potatoes
  3. Slice potatoes into strips.
  4. Cover with hot water and let sit for 20 minutes.
  5. Prepare the cajun blend by combining all spices in a bowl, set aside.
  6. Drain potatoes and dry them off thoroughly.
  7. Brush a baking pan with 3 tablespoons of oil and sprinkle pan with ⅓ of the cajun seasoning.
  8. Toss the potatoes with 1 tablespoon of oil and sprinkle lightly with seasoning.
  9. Place the potatoes on the pan in a single layer.
  10. Cover with foil and bake 5 minutes.
  11. Remove foil and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes until golden brown on the bottom.

TIPS Feel free to just use salt and pepper to season your fries. Experiment with different spices, you really can go wrong here (garlic and rosemary is divine!) They will crisp up a lil more once they have been out of the oven for a few minutes. Serve hot
