  • Collapse-it Silicone Mixing Bowls
  • Welding Gloves HEAT RESISTANT BBQ/Camping/Cooking
  • Cutting Board
  • GSI Outdoors - Santoku Knife Set
  • Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron 5 Piece Bundle
  • Folding Campfire Grill



  • Wash the potatoes really well.
  • Lay each potato on its side on a cutting board.
  • Cut the potato, lengthwise, into 4 sections.
  • Then cut each section into thinner wedges, or steak fries.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the seasonings together.
  • Place the cut fries into the bowl, and toss and coat with the seasonings and olive oil.
  • Place about 1/4 inch of canola oil or olive oil in a large cast iron skillet, and heat over the fire (or on the grill/camp stove).
  • Once the oil is hot and bubbly, place the fries carefully in the hot oil in a single layer, being careful not to splatter hot oil on your hands.**
  • Cook the fries for about 15 to 25 minutes, flipping and turning as needed to make sure both sides are cooked evenly. Fries should be tender, crispy, and golden brown when done.
  • Drain the oil responsibly, sprinkle the fries with chopped parsley if desired, and serve with ketchup or fry sauce.



*You can use canola oil or olive oil.
**Use grilling tongs or a flipper spatula with welding/grilling gloves on to avoid burns.
