Cajun Seasoning

  • 2 1/2 T. smoked paprika
  • 2 T. garlic powder
  • 2 T. salt
  • 1 T. cayenne pepper
  • 1 T. black pepper
  • 1 T. onion powder
  • 1 T. thyme
  • 1 T. oregano


  1. Combine all the spices and store in an airtight container.
  2. Wash and dry the potatoes, leaving the skin on, slice into even strips.
  3. Place the potatoes in a bowl and cover with cold water, allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the potatoes and pat dry. Add 1 T. olive oil, Cajun seasoning, and the salt to the potatoes. Toss to coat well.
  5. Grease the bottom of a large baking sheet with the remaining olive oil. Sprinkle just a little more Cajun seasoning over the bottom of the baking sheet.
  6. Place the potatoes on the baking pan in a single layer. Cover with tinfoil and bake in a 450-degree oven for 10 minutes, remove the tinfoil and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes, stirring about 1/2 way through the cooking time.
