Making fries with red potatoes is one of our favorite side dishes for dinner!  I coat the potatoes with spices, a little oil, and corn starch, and they came out perfect. I always use a little bit of Montreal steak spice on the top and the fries taste amazing!
The trick to getting the fries crispy is corn starch.  I gave the potatoes a light coating before tossing in the oven and they came out perfect! You can also substitute  arrowroot powder for a similar texture if you don’t want to use corn starch. We had these along side Tofu Shawarma Pitas – and the combo was so good.
The fries get perfectly seasoned from the Montreal Steak Spice (which is a simple mix of garlic, salt, pepper, dill) and the garlic powder takes it to the top. I even dipped them in ketchup and they were tastier than any restaurant fries.

These Red Potato Fries Are:

  • Crispy 
  • Crunchy

How Do I Season Fries & Make Them Crispy?

You’ll need a few simple ingredients that’ll make these oven baked fries perfect!

See the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Sunflower Oil: our go-to oil for roasting or baking! Sunflower is a high oleic oil, so it’s best to use for high temperatures.
  • Red Potatoes
  • Montreal Steak Spice: Our favorite spice blend,  probably the one we use most in our home! Montreal Steak Spice is a blend of garlic, pepper, salt, oregano, crushed pepper flakes, and a little dill for an amazing flavor.  With a half-Canadian household, you better believe we put this spice on everything!
  • Corn Starch: the secret to making these fries perfectly crispy!  I like this brand of organic corn starch best.  I use it weekly to make crispy potatoes and tofu!
  • Garlic Powder: Also a major pantry staple ingredient that gets used in our house daily!

Inexpensive and Affordable Potato Recipes For Everyone

I love how inexpensive these red potato fries are to make! This recipe uses a lot of ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards – most of which you probably have on hand.

  • 6 large red potatoes cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon Montreal Steak Spice
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch or arrowroot powder
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided

  • Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the corn starch to the bowl – and mix with your hands to make sure the potatoes are evenly coated with the corn starch.
  • Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil onto a large sheet pan. Arrange the potatoes on top so that they are in an even layer. Bake for 25 minutes, flipping the potatoes half way!
