If you’re like us, you love fresh fries. One way to give homemade french fries extra flavor is to shake on a tasty spice mix. The best thing about this seasoning recipe is you probably already have everything you need to make it already in your spice cabinet. Why use ordinary salt when you can dust your fries with the flavor of this awesome fry seasoning!
We love this seasoning so much usually make a big batch of this spice recipe so we have it on hand to us in place of salt on scrambled eggs, as a burger seasoning, and in casseroles.
Ingredients needed to make the seasoning
- Salt – regular table salt is best, just like fast food restaurants. Granulated sea salt is great too. Whatever salt you use, the grains should be the small, to easily mix in with the other spices.
- Paprika – adds nice color and mild sweet flavor.
- Parsley Flakes – adds subtle earthy flavor and color.
- Garlic Powder – a little garlic flavor, but not so much that it has a garlic bite.
- Onion Powder – adds nutty onion flavor.
- Black Pepper – familiar heat.
- Cayenne Pepper – this spice is optional. Cayenne has some real heat to it, so use more or less to your own tastes.
Add Flavor Variations
Talk about a versatile seasoning blend! If you love garlic fries, add an extra teaspoon or two. Celery salt, more dried herbs and chili pepper flakes are great additions to build a seasoning blend you’ll love to use on everything!
Making your own spice blends are a great way to control the amount of salt, too. You can use more or less salt to your own taste.
How to make Fry Seasoning
- In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients until well blended.
- Store in an airtight container, in a cool dry place, until ready to use.
- Sprinkle on hot fries to add extra delicious salt and spice flavor.
How to store Homemade Fry Seasoning
You’ll definitely want to store your fry seasoning in an airtight container. Moisture from the air can cause lumps and your spices to lose their flavor faster.
We love a sealable dredge or spice jar with a shaker top, so it’s always handy for shaking on this delicious seasoning mix to whatever we make.

How to use French Fry Seasoning
Depending on the type of fries you’re making and how you’re preparing them will determine how they’re seasoned. If the potatoes are going in the oven or air fryer, sprinkle on the seasoning blend before cooking your potatoes. If you’re using a deep frying, give them a good shake of seasoning after!
How to get seasoning to stick to the fries
- Oven Fries – toss the unbaked fries in a little olive oil right on the baking sheet, then sprinkle with fry seasoning and bake as usual.
- Air Fryer Fries – toss uncooked fries with olive oil or use a mister. Sprinkle the fries with seasoning and add to the air fryer to cook and crisp.
- Deep Fryer – fry the potatoes in oil, then shake off any excess oil when golden and crisp around the edges. Transfer fries to a serving plate then sprinkle on the fry seasoning.
