Oven-Baked Cajun French Fries

Oven-Baked Cajun French Fries

Oven-Baked Cajun French Fries? If you want me to try a recipe just put Cajun in the title. The second best is oven-baked.

 

The Cajun seasoning recipe included here is good for all Cajun dishes. I’m thinking Red Beans and Rice is in my near future with this seasoning mix!

If your family is into French fries give this oven-baked version a try. It’s definitely healthier than frying and downright delicious!
