Gluten-free baked old bay fries with creamy vegan onion dip.

Baked old bay fries are my ultimate comfort food.

And despite potatoes being naturally gluten-free.

I can rarely find a gf fry option on a menu.

After they are dunked in a greasy fryer full of glutenous oil they’re game over.

Sad face.

So, I make them myself.

Baked old bay fries are a staple in my home.

And this vegan, cashew based onion dip is the perfect accoutrement.

Baked Old Bay Fries

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Serves 2 servings

I prefer russet or red potatoes, but any will do. Peeling the potatoes is optional and totally up to you.


  • 2 medium red potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon old bay season
  • Creamy Cashew Onion Dip {see below}


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Scrub the potatoes and pat dry. Halve the potatoes lengthwise, then make four cuts diagonally in each half to make a total of 10 wedges from each potato.
  3. In a large mixing bowl toss the potatoes with the seasoning and oil. Distribute the potatoes on the pan, making sure they don't touch each other.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through or until perfectly browned. Sprinkle with another touch of seasoning and serve pipping hot with the onion dip.

Serves 1 cup

You do not need to soak the cashews, especially if you have a high-performance blender. But if you want to, soak for up to two hours and discard the water. This recipe will yield more sauce than you need, refrigerate leftovers in an air-tight container for about 5 days.


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews {see notes}
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion granules or onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and process until completely smooth.

    Oh m yyes. I love homemade fries, but never thought about seasoning them with old bay. That sounds fabulous! And the dipping sauce? I may just need a spoon for that stuff.
