Homemade French Fry Seasoning Recipe

Just when you think perfectly crisp, golden french fries can’t get any better, add this killer seasoning blend to them. I promise, you won’t want to eat fries any other way after this.

Although I recommend trying this with homemade french fries or Baked Potato Wedges. For a quicker turnaround, you can use frozen french fries as well.


Ingredients

2 teaspoons onion salt
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1.5 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

Yields 3 Tablespoons seasoning


When to Season French Fries

Whether or not you season the french fries before or after they are cooked depends on the cooking method that you use:

  • Deep Fried french fries are seasoned immediately after they’re finished frying.
  • Baked or Air Fried fries are seasoned before they’re cooked. They’re brushed with olive oil first to allow the seasoning to stick to the fries.

How to Season French Fries

The methods below apply to homemade or frozen french fries.

Oven-Baked French Fries

  • Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the french fries with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle french fry seasoning as evenly as you can over the fries and bake at 400°F until warm and golden brown. about 20 minutes.

Deep-Fried Fries

  • Have the combined french fry seasoning ready and use a slotted spoon to remove the fries from the oil once they are golden-brown.
  • Place them on a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle them immediately with french fry seasoning.

Storage

Store in an airtight container. Dried herbs and spices are best if used between 1-3 years.

I recommend making this seasoning in bulk and storing them in these spices jars.
