  • Sprinkle the spices over the cooked fries.


Make sure they are not touching each other on your baking sheet.  If they are overlapping at all, they will let off steam and turn out much softer.  
Cut them into wedges, rounds or thin shoestring-like strips (adjust cooking time to slightly less for thinner strips)
Use two baking sheets if you need to.
Using parchment paper on the baking sheet will help make them crispy. 
Play around with the seasonings.   Replace the garlic and paprika with cinnamon and a little nutmeg.
