We love making Blackstone Recipes because of the flavor and how easily it cooks. The frozen fries are cooked with the best texture and even better served with your favorite dipping sauce. Serve these Homemade French Fries with Blackstone Smash Burger or Blackstone Gyros for a complete meal idea.

What kind of French Fries to Use

The great thing about this easy side dish is you can use any kind of frozen French fries. We used the crinkle cut French fries as we liked how crispy they got on the edges.

But you can the same results if you used the waffle fries or the sweet potato fries.

Variation Ideas

  • Change the Seasoning – Toss with taco seasoning or season salt.
  • Add Toppings – Add garlic and parmesan or cheddar cheese right before removing from the griddle.
  • Different Oil Options – I used vegetable oil for this recipe but you can use peanut oil, coconut oil, canola oil or avocado oil instead. Do not use olive oil as it has a low smoke point and may cause the fries to burn.

How to Cook Frozen French Fries on Blackstone 

  • Step 1 – Preheat your Blackstone griddle over medium low heat to approximately 350 degrees F. 
  • Step 2 – Spread the vegetable oil on the flat top grill and use the spatula to spread the frying oil out evenly onto the griddle surface. 
  • Step 3 – Then put the frozen French fries onto the griddle in a single layer.

  • Step 4 – Cook the fries for 2-3 minutes without flipping them (you can close the lid if your griddle has one) until the fries are golden brown.  
  • Step 5 – Then flip the fries and cook them for 2-3 more minutes until all sides of the fries are golden brown.

Recipe Tips

  • Cooking Fries – Slowly put the fries on the griddle as you don’t want to put a ton of frozen ingredients on the griddle at once or it could cause the griddle to warp. 
  • Flipping Fries – As you are cooking the fries, flip the fries every 2-3 minutes so the outside of the fries get extra crispy.
  • Frying Pan – If you decide to cook these fries on the stove top, I would recommend using a cast iron skillet for best results.
