Home made French Fries

I served these french fries with the Black Bean burgers in the previous post. They came out pretty good, and even tasted okay the next night when we reheated them in the microwave.

Home-made French Fries


2 baking potatoes
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt (you could probably add more salt if you wanted, but I like my fries more on the spicy side than the salty side)
olive oil cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 400.

Peel and slice the potatoes into wedges. Once sliced, place the wedges into a large mixing bowl and coat with 2 or three sprays of cooking spray. Add the spices above and toss to coat the fries.

Spread the seasoned fries out on a non-stick baking sheet. Place in oven and bake until golden brown - about 15 minutes.


  1. Homemade fries sounds really good Melissa.

  2. Looks and sounds great. You should try serving these up with a curry ketchup or maybe a tangy tamarind dipping sauce.
