These delicious baked seasoned fries are way better than frozen and so easy to make.

These zesty baked fries are easy to make as an appetizer or side dish. We call them Game Day Fries because I usually make them for our family to snack on while we watch football!

I use russet potatoes and keep things simple by washing the potatoes and leaving the skins on. Then I toss them in seasoning and bake until golden brown.

You can put any spices you like on them but I’ve found a combination that we just love. Below is the recipe and I recommend doubling the batch if you have a big group over. They go quickly!
