Homemade Seasoned Steak Fries are so simple and delicious! Russet potatoes cut into wedges, seasoned and baked until crispy. Perfect with burgers or cover with chili and cheese. Serves 4.
Who doesn’t love french fries?
If I had to pick my favorite fast food French fries (besides McDonald’s because those will always be number 1), I would have to pick A&W’s seasoned fries. Crispy, fried, well seasoned and extremely bad for me. These oven fries are my healthier version of those.
It’s as easy as cutting russet potatoes into wedges, seasoning them in oil, my homemade all-purpose season salt and freshly ground pepper before spreading them out onto a lined pan and sending into a hot oven.
These come together quickly and I guarantee the whole family will love them!
To Make These Seasoned Fries You Will Need:
- russet potatoes – The best potato for making French fries (in my opinion).
- avocado oil – Or use any neutral oil made for high temperature cooking/roasting. (like grapeseed or sunflower oil)
- season salt – This is my version of Lawry’s season salt.
- black pepper – This will add some subtle bite and flavor.
Preheat your oven to 425° and line a rimmed metal baking sheet with parchment.
You’ll wanna scrub the potatoes well to get the dirt off. Cut in half lengthwise, then each half in half again and then into 3 to 4 spears. One potato should give you about 12 spears.
You don’t want any overly thin fries as they will over cook and burn in the oven.
Throw the spears in to a large bowl.
Drizzle with 2 tablespoons avocado oil to coat all the potatoes.
Measure 1 tablespoon of the season salt and some freshly ground black pepper over top. I like to make make them extra peppery for Pat.
Toss it one last time.
Spread out onto a parchment-lined, rimmed metal baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.
After the first 25 minutes, carefully turn watch fry. The parchment paper makes these easy to turn because they won’t stick.
Return the pan back to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes more – this will just depend on their thickness.
Serve with ketchup or fry sauce and watch them disappear! These delicious seasoned fries have a crispy exterior and soft fluffy interior and will surely be a hit at your dinner table as well!
These can be reheated in an air fryer. Simply preheat your air fryer to 270°, add the fries to your basket with a light spray of ghee or olive oil and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, shaking the basket half way through or until crispy and hot.
- Make them cheesy! Add 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan or pecorino Romano cheese or 1 to 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast if vegan.
- Play with the spices! Instead of all-purpose season try using a different one of my homemade spice blends!

THANK YOU in advance for your support!
Oh girl these look AWESOME!! If the planets align just right, you can get oven fries to taste like the artery-clogging ones at your favorite restaurant, and you seemed to have done it! Yum! I'll be looking for that homemade Lowrey's!
Yum, something so simple is something that is so great sometimes. My daughter and myself would really enjoy these.
Yummm! I love seasoned baked fries! Good stuff 🙂
Funny thing. I had baked French Fries for dinner. However, they were just the ol' store bought kind. These look great! I like that you didn't fry them either. My favorite fast food fry would be Dairy Queen no question!
yum! I used to love Arby's seasoned fries…now I'm partial to a local burger joint's sweet potato seasoned fries!
I made something similar last week…but I think the addition of Lawry's would make mine even better! Yum.
Baked french fries are a snack that I make for itty bitty quite often. Not as beautifully seasoned as these though. Yummy!
Yum! I love seasoned (homemade) fries! I actually love potatoes anyway you cook them! 🙂
Hold the burger – I'll take more fries please! YUM! ♥- Katrina
These are perfectly golden brown and so tempting!
Ang~ Never had DQ fries before.. usually just go for a M&M Blizzard 🙂
Katrina~ couldn't agree more! Skip the burger and give me the fries!!
Dara ~ Thanks! There is nothing I love more than a good grill char and crispy golden potatoes!! 🙂
mmm, looks so good! can't wait for a simply scratch version of seasoned salt.:)
Yummy laurie! I know Bob really likes seasoned fries and now I can make them for him.
Looks delicious! Your pictures are lovely too! (just found your blog through Babble).
Your fries look delish! I love homemade french fries. I would definitley dip these bad boys in some fry sauce : )
Oh Wow! These look and sound absolutely wonderful:) Now I'm craving fries, thanks:)
Yum! I've done similar to this with sweet potatoes. Now I'll have to try white potatoes. My husband will love it.
I'm making these tomorrow! I know my family will love them 🙂
You might have already found a Simply Scratch for the Seasoning Salt but I have the Simply Organic all-seasons salt and I think it tastes very similar to Lawry's. I can give you the ingredient list if you want. I love the site btw and the fries were great Thanks 🙂
Are you still working on the scratch-ify seasoning salt?
Yup… still trying to come up with a scratch-version 🙁
Judge the size of your potatoes wisely. I only used two potatoes but they were huge potatoes. I cut the halves into eights instead of quaters like the directions say. Also when it says use a large mixing bowl follow that. I used a medium bowl and I couldn’t fit all the potato wedges in the bowl. I made a mess trying to fit to much potato into the bowl. The potatoes I used were the size you would use for a huge baked potato like a whole meal with just one potato though.
