Recipe Collection: Seasoned Fries

admin January 5, 2012


I used to love Arby’s curly fries.  What’s not to love?  …except for all the health detriments, of course.  You don’t even want to know what’s in fast food…but it’s better not to eat it.

Then one day I made these at home, and to me, they taste quite a lot like those curly fries, only with no  junk!  I love these fries so much.  And they are easy.  Feel free to top with some cheese or bacon.  That really takes them to the next level!

These are oven-baked, so they’re actually really quick to make.  Perfect for a week-night dinner.

Recipe Collection: Seasoned Fries


  • 4 – 5 medium potatoes
  • Sea salt
  • 2 – 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 – 4 tbsp. avocado oil
Step 1: Wash and slice your potatoes.  You can do them as thicker wedges or thinner fries.  It’s best if they’re not too thin because they’ll burn more easily.

Step 2: Put them all on a baking tray.

Step 3: Grate the garlic (or mince).  Add the garlic, oil, and salt to the fries and toss them around on the tray to coat them evenly.  Avocado oil is really best, because it has such a high smoke point.  It also has a nice, neutral flavor, so your garlic can shine!

Step 4:  Put your fries in a 350 degree oven.  They’ll need to bake for 30 – 40 minutes, stirred at least once so they brown evenly on all sides.

Step 5: Serve the fries hot, just as they are, or add a sprinkle of parsley or cheese (depending on your preference).

Then you wait until they look golden brown, and they’re done!  Wasn’t that easy?  And yummy!  If you want less-easy but amazing fries, you can also try my method for that.

Does your family enjoy seasoned fries?  What’s your favorite side dish?

  1. Gorgeous and delicious looking fries! And your helper is truly adorable! Thanks for sharing!


  2. Yum! I’m going to try this soon. I have to admit… eating fast food fries lately just isn’t the same. They just taste “off” since I’ve been eating healthy. I guess that’s how it’s supposed to be.


  3. We love homemade french fries too. Although, we cut ours in thin discs, kind of like potato chips, so they cook faster. And since we make them in the oven in our home in Texas, meaning they are neither french nor fried, we’ve taken to just calling the “bakes” 🙂


  4. We make our fries like that too, although they are called chips in our house. Yum Yum!! I recently discovered herbamare & we love that on our fries too. I’ve never made them with tallow though. Can’t believe Jacob is 5 mths! Such a cutie!


  5. I wish we could have potatoes — my husband needs to be nightshade-free, so we all are…unfortunately he doesn’t like sweet potatoes either!


    • Beth — I bet you could roast cauliflower or asparagus like this and it would be awesome! Different, but awesome!


  6. Question-do you ever soak you potatoes before cooking them? Like you would rice or grains? I’ve been curious about this and look it up on line and found a few sites that said it reduces the starch. I was curious what a fellow “real food” foodie does.


    • Heidi, not usually, although I probably should. Sometimes I blanch them before I fry them, which does the same thing.


  7. […] Dinner – Buffalo burgers, soaked buns, fries […]


  8. […] Lunch – Burgers, baked beans, fries […]


  9. I would love for you to share and link up at my TGIF Link Party. The party is open every Thursday night and closes Wednesday’s at midnight.
    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs, Cathy
