While perusing around the world wide web for baseball stadium recipe inspiration, I came across “Crab Fries”.
If you’re not a seafood fan, don’t worry, there’s no actual crab in this recipe. Crab Fries were created by Chickie’s and Pete’s in Philadelphia when crab was not in season, as another way to use their Crab Seasoning.
For Day 4 of “Baseball Week” I’m sharing my version of the Philadelphia Phillies stadium staple!
- 2 lbs russet potatoes
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp old bay seasoning
Begin by slicing the potatoes into wedges, then placing in a large bowl and drizzling the olive oil over the potatoes.
Toss to coat all of the potatoes with the olive oil, then sprinkle the old bay seasoning on top.
Toss well to coat.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes.
Traditional Crab Fries in Philly are served with a cheese sauce. I served mine with the Cilantro Lime Dip I made for the Bratwurst Stuffed Jalapeños.
I really liked the slightly spicy crispy fries with the creamy fresh cilantro dip!
