We love these fries! We put together this recipe after doing some research on how to make french fries on a budget; without spending the cash on a pre-packaged bag and in how to get the flavors that we wanted. I love the french fries at Five Guys Burger & Fries but can no longer do the peanut / peanut oil that it is cooked in — so while we have been able to safely get burgers there, I can’t justify the aftermath of the peanut oil on the fries. These come as close as I can imagine getting to the texture / taste of their french fries with some new flavor in the seasoning. They’re baked, and since most of us will have these seasonings and the olive oil already in home – it’s super cost effective! A 10lb bag of russet potatoes costs us less than $2 at Fred Meyer here in Seattle.
