Zesty Baked French Fries

Zesty Baked French Fries




10 min


40 min


baking potatoes 3-4
olive oil 1/4 cup
chili powder-I like Penzeys 2 tbsp
granulated garlic 1 tsp
cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp-more if desired
salt-add to your taste

I love spicy, crispy, French Fries, but I try not to eat a lot of fried greasy food. These fries have a kick! They cook up nice and crunchy with only a little oil. I truly think the baking stone also plays a large part in how crispy they get.

  1. Scrub your potatoes. I leave the skins on. It makes prep time quicker and I feel the fries are healthier and look prettier that way.
  2. Slice your potatoes in half and then slice them length wise until they get to be about a 1/2 centimeter thick and wide. The thinner you cut them however, the faster they will cook. I think these are better cut almost to shoe string size. Try to cut them all the same size.

3. Place them in a bowl with a lid along with the olive oil and your seasonings.

4. Toss to coat the potatoes with everything. (I don’t remember why I didn’t use a bowl this time, but trust me, it’s easier! )

5. Spread the fries evenly over your baking stone . You don’t have to use a baking stone , but I am not sure how these will turn out on a regular pan.

6. Place fries in a 450 degree oven for about  20 minutes.

7. After 20 minutes remove the fries from the oven, and flip them over. The underside should be nice and crispy. Place fries back in the oven for 20 or so more minutes or until they reach your desired crispness. I like mine crispy!

These are by far my favorite brand of herbs and spices. They are always fresh tasting even when dried.

Penzeys also has a mild chili powder, but I like my food with a punch!
