What better to go with my Baby Cajun Burgers than some Homemade Cajun Fries. I developed a simple and completely irresistible recipe that you can whip up this afternoon if you’d like.
Grab yourself a couple of nice potatoes and get going, these are too good to pass up
Here are the spices I use for my Cajun seasoning recipe.
Here you have them. Give them a nice mix.
Time to break out the potatoes.
Cut off all ends creating a rectangle. Cut potatoes into strip as photographed. Place potatoes into a bowl of sugar water and soak for 30 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to dry for 5 minutes.
Heat oil to 350 degrees F.
Carefully drop potatoes into hot oil, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, transfer to paper towel lined plate.
Shortly before serving, fry a second time and transfer to paper towel lined plate.
Right after 2nd fry, sprinkle with pinches of Cajun seasonings.
