French Fry Seasoning Ingredients
Here’s what you’ll need to make this awesome seasoning:
Paprika can be substituted with smoked paprika for a smokey flavor, and if you don’t have all of the ingredients listed then no problem it still will be very flavorful.
How to Season French Fries
First, make the seasoning by collecting all of the ingredients, mix, and place in a jar.
When to season french fries? This depends on how you’re cooking the fries.
- Deep-fried fries – whether they’re cooked from fresh or frozen, after you take them out of the oil, season them immediately with french fry seasoning while they’re still hot.
- Oven-baked fries or Air fryer fries – drizzle the fries with oil, and sprinkle with seasoning. Then using a spoon or your hands, toss the potatoes until they’re evenly coated with oil and seasonings. Then bake or air fry them.
Store the seasoning in an airtight spice jar for up to 6 months. Spices and dried herbs can last for a year or 2, but it is recommended that ground spices/herbs are consumed within 6 months for the best flavor.
Keep the jar away from sunlight, and store it in a dark and dry place. If your seasoning blend is exposed to humidity, it will become sticky and you won’t be able to use it.
And finally, don’t forget to label your jar with “french fry seasoning” and include a date so you know when you need to use it by.
You might be wondering how much seasoning do you need for 1lb of fries, and honestly, I don’t have an answer for you. Start with 2 teaspoons of seasoning, taste the fries, and decide if you would like to add more.
