Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Wash and cut potatoes into thick fries. Rinse and pat down with paper towel. Place fries into a large bowl.
  3. Pour spices, lemon juice, and oil over fries and toss with clean hands until all fries are coated with seasonings evenly.
  4. Spread out fries on lined baking sheet. Make sure they aren’t touching. If they are too crowded they won’t crisp up as well. Use two baking sheets if necessary.
  5. Place in oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. Flip half way through bake time.
  6. Meanwhile, add all tzatziki ingredients to a food processor and pulse until there aren’t any large chunks of cucumber. Do not over blend. This sauce isn’t supposed to be smooth.
  7. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  8. Garnish fries with fresh dill and lemon zest. Serve with tzatziki sauce.
