Copycat Red Robin Fries + Video

Red Robin fries are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside with a flavor that will make your mouth water! Make them in under an hour.

The seasoning used on Red Robin fries is popular for a reason - no wonder they have to offer bottomless baskets!

How To Make Red Robin Fries

  1. Prep the potatoes. Give all of them a good scrub to remove any dirt, then slice into wedges.
  2. Add oil and seasoning. Place the wedges in a large bowl and toss with vegetable and spice blend until all of the pieces are evenly coated.
  3. Bake. Spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet, then sprinkle a little more seasoning over the top. Cook for about 40 minutes, flipping the steak fries halfway so they crisp evenly.

Homemade Seasoning Blend

If you don’t have a restaurant nearby, you can easily create something similar with a few pantry staples. A helpful reader shared this post and I’ve also listed it below:
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon instant tomato soup mix
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine everything in a bowl or mason jar. Double or triple the amounts to have some on hand and store in a cool, dry place for the best shelf life.

Note: Depending on your store, the tomato soup mix may be located with the canned soup or the Mexican spices.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy homemade Red Robin fries with a gourmet burger or any of your favorite main dishes.

I think they are perfect just the way they are, but you can certainly add a dipping sauce like ketchup or buttermilk ranch.

Kitchen Tools You Will Need
  • Baking Sheets - Used for anything from cookies to roasting, a good sheet pan will last for years.
  • Quality Knives - If you only make one kitchen investment, it should be this. They cut down on prep time and are important for safety as well.
  • Large Bowl - This one is my go-to!

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

How do I get my potato wedges to be crispier?

Soak the wedges in a bowl of hot water for about 10 minutes immediately after slicing. Be sure to drain and pat dry before coating with oil and spices.

This helps to remove excess starch while also allowing the vegetable to absorb extra moisture, giving you a crispier texture when baked.

What is in the seasoning for Red Robin steak fries?

According to the label, the ingredients include two types of salt, black pepper, celery seed, cumin, oregano, sage, paprika, and natural smoke flavor.

It also lists garlic, onion, and tomato as dried vegetables, along with yeast extract and dried cane syrup to round out the flavor profiles.

Where can I buy it?

If there’s a restaurant location near you, just ask your server or a host to ring you up for a bottle or two!

Otherwise, you will need to find it at an online retailer.

Enjoy!

  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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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?

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

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

  13. 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!

  14. 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! http://bridgetbakes.blogspot.com/

  15. Where do you find the fry seasoning?

    ReplyDelete
  16. 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.

    Ingredients:

    - 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!

  19. After you slice the potatoes, soak them in ice cold water for a bit. They will be extra crispy!

    ReplyDelete
  20. If the purpose of this recipe is to be able to make this at home, why did you not include a recipe for the seasoning? If I have to go to Red Robin to purchase their seasoning, I might as well just eat there. Otherwise, I love your site and most all of the recipes!
