Ingredients

Cajun Fries

  • 3 pounds unpeeled russet potatoes cut into wedges or strips
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon creole seasoning
  • 1/2 teasponn pepper
  • 4-6 ounces freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 fried eggs optional
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon fried and crumbled (optional)

Grilled Corn Cajun Guacamole

  • 3 avocado peeled and pitted
  • 1 ear grilled corn
  • 1 grilled red pepper
  • 1 grilled orange pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning + 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon creole
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place cut potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, cajun season, creole seasoning and pepper. Gently toss with your hands or two spatulas to evenly coat. Spread on a baking sheet in one layer. Roast for 25-30 minutes, then flip and roast for 25-30 minutes more. This may take longer depending on how thick you cut your potatoes. You want the potatoes to be deeply golden and crispy on the outside!
  • While the potatoes are cooking make the guacamole. Preheat your grill to high heat (you can also roast the corn and peppers in the oven while the fries cook, but I prefer the grill).
  • In a small bowl mix the olive oil with the cajun seasoning and rub the corn, red pepper and organe pepper with the oil. Wrap the corn in a small piece of foil and grill the corn, red pepper and orange pepper for about 25 minutes turning each veggie about three times. Remove and let cool while you mash the avocados in a medium size bowl with the remaining cajun seasoning and the creole seasoning. Slice off the corn kernels, de-seed and chop the pepper and place both in the bowl with the avocados. Add the green onions, lemon juice, pepper and hot sauce to taste. Toss well.
  • When the fries are done cooking top the whole pan with the shredded cheddar cheese and place back in the oven for about five minute or until the cheese is melted or bubbly. Or you can divide the the fries between individual oven safe serving dishes and top with equal amounts of the shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Remove the cheesy fries from the oven and plate them. Top with with the cajun guacamole, fried eggs and crumbled bacon if desired.
