Ingredients for Cajun Fries
The best part about this recipe is that it’s restaurant-quality french fries made with only four ingredients! And the ones you probably already have at home! See recipe card below for a list of exact measurements.
- russet potatoes: When you cut your potatoes, make sure they are all the same size. I make sure to watch it carefully as it will affect how evenly your fries cook. They will cook better if they are all the same size.
- Olive oil: I prefer to use olive oil as it is healthier but you can use vegetable oil if that’s all you have.
- Cajun seasoningIf possible try to make it Homemade Cajun Seasoning already. I think it deserves to taste amazing! But… if you only have time for store-shopping then that will work too!

Let’s make some fry!
One of my favorite and easy recipes to cook is french fries. They provide amazing flavor and texture and these Cajun fries do just that!
- Preheat oven: Preheat the oven to 425°.
- Clean and cut the potatoes: Clean the potatoes. Go ahead if you want to peel them, but I chose to leave the skins on. Either press the potatoes with a large fry cutter or cut them into inch square sticks.
- Soak and Wash: Put your cut potatoes in a large bowl of cold water and soak for at least 30 minutes to release excess potato starch. After 30 minutes, strain and wash the potatoes.
- Dry the potatoes and coat them with spices: Dry the potatoes well and place them on a large baking sheet. Add olive oil, Cajun seasoning and salt to potatoes and toss together until evenly coated. You can do this in a bowl instead, but I prefer to do it right on the baking sheet to save myself from having to wash another dish.
- Bake, Flip and Dip: Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and flip the fries and bake for another 20 minutes before enjoying with your favorite dipping sauce.

How to store and reheat leftovers

- Fridge: Once you let the fries cool, store them in an airtight container. They can last 3-5 days in your fridge.
- Heating: Reheating french fries has to be done a certain way because no matter how you reheat them, they will make or break them! I like to reheat mine in the oven so they have that crisp texture. This will make them taste fresh again! Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place the fries in a single layer on a baking sheet and fry them for 3-5 minutes. Remove them and enjoy!
