"Everything" Fries

Sometimes you have to try some losers...

I can smell the orange...why can't I taste it?!
Chili powder + cinnamon = good in theory, not in execution
to find a winner.


"Everything" Fries
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt (this should be around 3/4 tsp if fries aren't already salted)
  • 1 1/4 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 16 oz bag Alexia Oven Crinkles Classic frozen fries

By the way, these are the easiest fries ever.


Combine all spices. Toss fries in spices until well coated. It may seem like they won't stick but they will, just keep tossing and turning, continually grabbing the spices from the bottom of the bowl and putting them back on the fries.


Bake at 450F for 20-25 minutes. Viola


Crinkle russets being my favorite so far?! Now that's a surprise

My favorite thing about these fries? They go so. well. with ketchup. In fact, I ran out of ketchup and drove to Trader Joe's at 9 pm to get more. Because I'm insane like that. Wanna see a crazy picture of me with a ridiculously long fry? OF COURSE YOU DO.

At least they're organic...
You're welcome. And while I'm really enjoying having an excuse to eat a ridiculous amount of fries, I think eventually half a bag of fries every will have an adverse effect on my waistline. Just maybe.

It's been really hot for my runs lately and I'm starting to sweat off every ounce of sunscreen I put on...which leads to the ever-so-coveted sports bra tan line. It's gorgeous, let me tell you. NOT. I bought new "sweatproof" sunscreen since mine was still from high school...yiiiikes. Can you tell I'm used to a treadmill for the summer?

Do you have a problem sweating off your sunscreen? What brand do you use?
I never have a problem with my face lotion, thank goodness, so I don't get it in my eyes or anything...but my neighbors think I'm kinda weird since I sweat milky white stuff. 

Any suggestions on what to call these fries?!
They remind me of an everything bagel....so I thought it made sense. But something along the lines of Garlic Peppered fries would be more appropriate? FEEDBACK PLEASE. thank you. :)

I personally like the name "everything" fries, but maybe something like your hubby said would work. I'm really not creative at all so I love your name. Simple. To the point and explains them perfectly!

Now you have ME craving fries!!
