This is a recipe my husband created when we were out of all season salt, now when frying up tator tots or french fries we only use this seasoning mix!! Since we don't have a deep fryer, we usually pan fry our tator tots and then toss them with this seasoning. They taste awesome!! We use sea salt so that the sodium isn't as high. If you choose to use regular salt you may need to adjust the amount of salt added to get the right taste. Also tastes great on hashbrowns or diced potatoes!!

Ingredients Nutrition

This makes a very nice seasoning for oven-baked potato wedges. The Old Bay seasoning makes the difference!

Not just for french fries, but I can see using this in a lot of things. I just made up a double batch and used some of it on potatoes and onions on the grill. Very tasty!! We love making up our own seasoning blends. Thank you for sharing a good one!

I gave this recipe 4 stars. What a nice seasoning for fries. I hate plain fries so I searched for a seasoing for fries and came across this recipe. When I did make this I made a minor change to the recipe. I used regular salt for the sea salt. I did make a change I sprinkled this seasoning on oven baked fries instead of fried ones. I did use alot of the seasoning almost all of it on a couple handfuls of fries. Overall I'll make this again for sure! Thank you for posting a wonderful fry seasoning! Christine (internetnut)
