Five Guys, the fast-casual restaurant chain, makes some really delicious food—from their juicy burgers to their creamy shakes. One of our favorite dishes is their Cajun-spiced fries. We made a copycat version with the bold flavor and crispness of the original, but by oven-baking them and relying more on spices, we were able to cut down on the amount of fat and salt used in the cooking process. Tame these fiery fries by serving them with classic ketchup.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place a large, rimmed baking sheet in the oven. Preheat to 450°F.

  • Place potato sticks in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat.

  • Stir paprika, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cayenne together in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the potatoes and toss to thoroughly coat. Carefully spread the coated potatoes in a single layer on the hot baking sheet. Bake, flipping halfway through, until the fries are golden and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.
