Seasoning adaption: Try swapping garlic powder for your favorite spice blend. 
- I love these fries with Old Bay seasoning
- If using a spice blend with elements that will burn easily (like Trader Joe's Everything But The Bagel or their Nori Komi Furikake Japanese blend), add the spice with the salt after cooking.
