Oven Baked BBQ Fries

P1330567xPotatoes are my kryptonite. Those of you who have been reading here for a long time know my love of potatoes. I don’t care if they are mashed, baked, fried, hashed…it just doesn’t matter. I can’t say no to them in any form. I really try to keep my distance from them but they call to me with their siren songs. Ugh.

So what’s a girl to do with five russet potatoes sitting on the counter? Cut them into thick wedges and slather them with barbecue sauce…why not. And then eat them one by one until you feel you can’t stuff yourself anymore. Rinse. Repeat.

It’s not like the fry itself has this overwhelming barbecue sauce flavor, but it ends up having a nice smoky-sweet background taste. So, to really drive home the whole barbecue experience,mix more of the barbecue sauce with sour cream to make a dipping sauce. Yum. 


I love how the barbecue sauce adds a crispiness to the edge of the fries.  Just couldn’t stop eating them. Save me from myself.

Make these for your next cook out…you will love!

Oven Baked BBQ Fries

Recipe from: Created by Noble Pig | Serves: 6


  • cooking spray
  • 2-1/4 pounds russet baking potatoes, peeled and cut into uniform wedges
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare two large rimmed baking sheets with foil and cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, olive oil and black pepper.
  • Place sliced in bowl with barbecue sauce mixture and toss to coat. Spread sliced potatoes in a single-layer on both baking sheets. Bake until golden brown and tender with crispy edges, about 20-30 minutes (depending on your oven. Rotate pans once through the cooking process. Sprinkle with kosher salt after you remove from the oven.
  • Combine sour cream with remaining 1/4 cup barbecue for the dipping sauce. Let fries cool off a little before eating. The inside of thick-cut fries are very hot. You will taste more flavor if you let them cool slightly.

    Hmm, nice idea but they look a bit too burnt for me.

    I feel exactly the same way you feel about potatoes…..give ’em to me any which way and I will gobble them up. These savory looking BBQ potatoes are going to be my July 4 go to recipe. I have some very spicy gourmet BBQ sauce that I received as a gift, and I was looking for the perfect time to use it. They may not be the perfect pairing with hotdogs, but hey….I love ’em just the same. Your photo is absolutely perfect and mouthwatering and tempting, all at the same time. Thanks for this one.

      I bet that will be good Barbie, especially mixed into the sour cream.
