Red Robin Seasoned Oven Baked Fries

It's The Happy Hour here at The Slow Roasted Italian!  Happy Hump Day!

Here is a fantastic Happy Hour treat to get you through the mid-week blahs!!!

We have made these fries several times, the first was for a barbecue we hosted a couple months ago and my friend YaYa helped with the fries!  Thanks so much!  Today, just so happens to be her Birthday.   Happy Birthday Auntie YaYa!  She is 29 {wink wink} we love you!  These fries were an even bigger hit with the crowd than the Oven Baked Garlic Potato Fries.  I myself am partial to the garlic fries, but then again...  I am Italian and a garlic fanatic!

Red Robin is my favorite gourmet burger restaurant to go to.  The prices are a little high for my taste (about $40 per couple for appetizer, drinks, burgers, etc).  Yeah, I am cheap when it comes to eating out.  If I can prepare it, I don't want to pay high prices to have someone else do it for me.  This is a more frugal mindset than I have had in the past.  I have been a bit of a spendthrift most of my adult life.  I want what I want when I want it.  Since I retired from working outside the home and we became a 1 income household and added Em (our daughter) to the family, I have changed my thinking.  So, now we go to Red Robin for special occasions, like birthdays.  They have a program where you can get a free burger on your birthday.  I like free stuff. A LOT!  So, that is the plan this weekend - I have my free burger and only Mr W has to pay.  I am really excited and it is quite fitting that I am blogging these fries this week.  Anyway...  I was saying about the fries I made...

The Red Robin seasoning that we used on these fries adds such an incredible blend of flavors, it is no wonder they were so popular.  The bottle of seasoning is 16 ounces and very well priced.  It has 20 unique spices and ingredients including; salt, black pepper, celery seed, cumin, oregano, sage, garlic, onion, paprika, tomato and smoke flavor.  It is a fantastic combination of flavors.  And the fries are so incredibly simple to make!

The fries are crispy on the outside and soft inside, flavor that makes my mouth water.  They do not need any dipping sauce, they are perfect just the way they are.  Mr. W ate them with ketchup, a must have for him.  If you prefer you can use your favorite seasoning blend on these fries, but I would get this one if you can!!!

Enjoy!  I know you will.

Red Robin Seasoned Oven Baked Fries
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 pounds russet potatoes, cut into wedges
1 tablespoon Red Robin seasoning, divided

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Place the potatoes in a large bowl.  Toss with vegetable oil.  Sprinkle in 1/2 tablespoon seasoning, toss well to coat.

On 2 baking sheets, lay fries out in a single layer (not touching).  Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 tablespoon (more or less to taste) over fries.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes, flip fries half way through.  I also rotated the baking sheets, top to bottom and bottom to top.

Serve and enjoy!!

  1. And this is why I love visiting your site- the most amazing and perfect recipes for my family. Those fries look to die for! Seriously, like I would eat the whole pan and say sorry to the rest of the family! Awesome

  2. I could eat the whole basket full of those tasty baked fries. YUM!

  3. MMmm these look great and I must say your pictures are awesome looking right now,
    Great job..

  4. Fries are one of my weaknesses, so yours would not last long around here. I have a recipe for the seasoning blend you used and it is pretty tasty-perfect for fries. Great post.

    1. so what is in the seasoning?

  5. WOO HOO! It's time for a week of Donna! Happy Happy Happy Birthday to YOU! The countdown is on now.

    And for the record, these fries were absurdly good. Pretty much the most addicting fries I've had in my life. Honestly, they were better than Red Robin's. Not sure how that's possible, since it's all of three ingredients and their own seasoning, but they were DEEEEEEEEElicious. Have I mentioned that often enough since I had them?

  6. Thsi is simple and comforting/Well happy birtday than.Nice to read you:))

  7. favourite way to have potatoes looks delicious

  8. After last night, I now understand why these are so much better! Good grief, there is no comparison. I can hardly wait to make these later this week, now that I have my own stash of the seasoning.

  9. Ok, I'm making a pest of myself on this post, but I keep forgetting to ask while we are on the phone. (Feel free to delete my ramblings here - ha ha) Did you skip the cornstarch with this batch? And they were still crispy like the others?

  10. No, there was not any corn starch on these when you ate them. Only on the garlic ones.

  11. Oh fine, just confuse me, why don't you?

  12. I always try to find recipes that BAKE rather than fry to cut down on the fat. These looked so good I could not resist making them. I tried it out last night and my kids went crazy over them and I quite liked them as well and easy to make!

  13. yes please! I'm so glad I found your blog, newest follower!!! Love your recipes. You are making me hungry! :) I'd love if you stopped by my blog and shared some love!

  14. Where do you find the fry seasoning?

  15. Once you know what you need and how it goes together, head to the grocery store and pick up the ingredients. If you are concerned about calories, you can change things up. Use a veggie burger patty instead of a meat patty. Or use a low calorie option for sauces. Most importantly, when you cook it, you can cut out a lot of the grease and fat. Not only will you satisfy the Red Robin craving, you may have even shaved off a few calories.
    I found this on the internet, I have never had Red Robin so not sure what it tastes like but am going to try this.

    here is the recipe for Red Robin's famous seasoning.


    - 3 tablespoons salt
    - 1 tablespoon instant tomato soup mix
    - 2 teaspoons chili powder (don't over do it with this spice)
    - 1/4 teaspoon cumin
    - 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (try to use fresh pepper corns)

    Good luck copying your favorite Red Robin recipes!
