Bojangles Copycat French Fries Recipe

The fast-food experience will not be complete without eating a single order of french fries. Some restaurants are content with just putting salt but others are taking it a step further. For instance, Bojangles prides itself on its 40-year-old tradition of keeping it true to the authentic Southern-style flavors.

Make movie nights, date nights, and snacking more interesting by serving up a platter of these french fries. For this recipe, try getting your hands on the starchiest potato you’ll ever find in the market. Make sure it’s fresh, as well. Feel free to add some more spices like crushed rosemary or thyme or even cumin. This will make your fries savory as well as flavorful. Be generous with that chili powder as well if you want to kick it up a notch.

This is a simple and easy recipe. You might not want to go to a fast-food chain next time if you’re craving for fries. If you want some burgers to go with that fries, try this Fennel and Apple Slaw Pork Burger recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil

Spice seasoning mix

  • 1 tsp green cardamom, ground
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3 tsp white sugar
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the potatoes into lengthwise fingers and place them into a bowl of cold water for about 10-12 minutes.

  2. Combine the spices together in a small bowl.

  3. Remove the potatoes from the water and dry them. Place the fries onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  4. Drizzle olive oil over the fries before covering them evenly with the spice mix and mix together thoroughly.

  5. Bake the fries for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  6. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

You can experiment with different spices for your seasoning mix to suit your preference. You can try out a garlic and rosemary mix or something as simple salt and pepper to season your fries.

The fries will crisp up a little bit more once they have been out of the oven for a few minutes. Serve them while still hot so you don't lose out on the crispiness.

Commonly Asked Questions

Why do I have to soak the potatoes?

Soaking potatoes in cold water removes the excess starch, which prevents the fries from sticking to one another. It also ensures the golden-brown crispiness we all want. If you want even crispier fries, soak them for a couple of hours or up to overnight in the fridge.

Should I peel the potatoes or keep the skin on?

The original Bojangles fries have the skin off so if you want to stay true to the original, you can skin them. However, it comes down to personal preference; if you like the texture the potato skin adds to the fries, keep it on!
