Crab Fries Recipe


These delicious french fries go great with your favorite burger or Philly cheesesteak!

Old Bay Seasoning is a blend of herbs and spices that is marketed in the United States by McCormick & Company, and produced in Maryland. It is produced in the Chesapeake Bay area where it was developed by German immigrant Gustav Brunn in 1939, and where the seasoning is very popular to this day. At that time, crabs were so plentiful that bars in Baltimore, Maryland, offered them free  and salty seasonings like Old Bay were created to encourage patrons to purchase more beverages. Old Bay is just one of many crab seasonings created during that era, yet it is one of only a few that survived.

Crab Fries Ingredients

  • Frozen French Fries
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Vegetable Oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place the frozen french fries in a large bowl, pour vegetable oil over fries, start with a few tablespoons to 1/2 cup and stir, you want the fries to be coated and shiny.  Sprinkle with old bay seasoning; again, start with a few tablespoons and keep going till the fries are lightly coated.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until lightly crisped.
