Seasoning salt for french fries

My daughter loves french fries with a passion. This makes going to the mall a problem because she will see people eating fries and once she does she will scream at them with such ferocity that strangers will actually start offering her their lunch (this actually happened. I am not joking.)

Today she had one of her little toddler friends over for a play date so I decided to whip up a batch of seasoning salt and homemade fries for their snack.

Big Batch

6 tablespoons salt
½ teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon marjoram
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 ¼ teaspoons paprika
¼ teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon dry mustard
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon dill weed
½ teaspoon celery salt

Pour all ingredients into a spice bottle and shake it up. Sprinkle on fries, potato wedges, hash browns, ect.

I used an empty popcorn seasoning bottle for mine

I made some homemade oven fries. Much healthier than fast food fries as they were just fresh potatoes sliced up, coated lightly with some canola oil and baked in the oven.

The seasoning salt was amazing, it tasted EXACTLY like the kind on the fries at Wet n Wild, the waterpark I used to work at in the summers when I was in school. It gives your homemade fries a real fast food taste without all the cost and rancid oil of real fast food. Us big girls and the little girls gobbled them all up.

  1. One of my favorites. Home cooked fries usually aren't as tasty as fast food fries. But this is even better than A&W.
