Caribbean Jerk Fries (and the final vote!)

These sound like mean fries, don't they? ;) But really, they're pretty freakin delicious. I tried this seasoning on both russet and sweet fries. Both were winners which makes the decision that much harder...

Jerk Seasoning
from Allrecipes database
makes 1/4 cup
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Combine. Super easy. Not to mention, I could use this in place of the cumin in my black bean burgers. DELICIOUS.  

Caribbean Jerk Fries
serves 2
  • 1/2 bag Alexia french fries*
  • Juice of one lime, about 2 tsp
  • 2 tsp jerk seasoning

*I used 1/2 of a bag because there's only two of us...you can definitely use the whole bag if you're feeding more. Just be sure to double the seasoning too.

Toss fries with seasoning and lime juice. I find that seasonings tend to stick better when the fries have "thawed" for about 10 minutes.

Bake at 400F or 450F, depending on which fry you choose, for 20-25 minutes. (Check the bag!)

This is the end of my fry trials. I have to submit my final fry TOMORROW! Eeek. So, let's review....
