Spicy Fries

I was kickin back watching Paula Dean and her son make homemade grilled fries and was motivated to make my own to go with our bean burgers.   Paula’s son used Cajun seasoning and grilled them,  I used Emeril’s Essence Seasoning and baked mine.   Be careful, these are very addicting!

Spicy Fries

2          baking potatoes, sliced into large chunks
            olive oil
            Cajun spice or Emeril’s Essence Seasoning
            Salt & Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut two baking potatoes into large slices, leaving skin on.
Par boil potatoes for approximately 6 min., rinse and pat dry.
Assemble potatoes onto pan in one layer.  Sprinkle potatoes with oil and seasonings.
Mix with hands.

Bake approximately 10 – 15 min.  Turn potatoes and continue to cook another 10-15 minutes.  Keep an eye on the potatoes, they may take less time to cook depending on the type of potatoes you are using.


  1. My favorite way to eat fries is with pesto/mayo dipping sauce- made with veganaise of course- it is amazing! So good that I only eat it once in a blue moon! Otherwise I would gain wait rather than lose it..
