Oven fries and homemade potato seasoning

 Many of us like potato fries/chips, and I’m not an exception. 😀 Yes, I know that they are not healthy.. But if your diet is balanced and healthful most of the time, you can have one cheat day during a week or so. However, it’s certainly preferable to make your own homemade fries. And I mean roasted fries instead of those deep-fried and greasy. My secret to great and tasty fries is a special spice mix, that I prepare myself: for that you need to combine rosemary, turmeric, paprika and some other spices (look at the recipe below). This seasoning suits perfectly to both regular and sweet potatoes. Once tried, you might want to make a larger jar next time! 😉Oven roasted potato fries

 Enjoy your aromatic snack!

  1. Wow, I’m impressed with how even and beautifully golden these homemade fries are! I’ve never even attempted something like this at home because I figured I wouldn’t be able to get good results, but this definitely looks worth trying!

    • No need to be afraid, practice and practice! 😀 Even if you won’t get the super crispy fries, you would enjoy it anyway, especially with seasoning prepared with love! 😉

  2. Oh my goodness. These spice mix must add a lot of flavors to the potatoes, not to mention the aroma when it’s being roasted. You are right, once a week cheat with the potatoes is okay. 🙂 Thank you for sharing the recipe. 🙂
