Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
We love French fries. But we don’t like heating up the house on a hot day just to enjoy some fries. That’s where my Char-Broil Big Easy comes in. I can cook (reheat, technically) frozen fries in it just like I would indoors. I like to kick-up my fries, and these Italian herb fries on the Char-Broil Big Easy are definitely kicked-up. A little butter and a few tasty herbs and it’s time to devour some mighty tasty fries!
To make these Italian herb fries on the Char-Broil Big Easy I used a bunk bed basket. It lets me double or even triple the amount of cooking space I have. I originally used a similar basket that Char-Broil has since discontinued. The bunk bed is at least as good as it was if not better!

Italian Herb Fries on the Char-Broil Big Easy
- ½ bag French fries frozen, about 1 pound frozen
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ½ teaspoon dried basil slightly crushed
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano slightly crushed
- ½ teaspoon dried rosemary slightly crushed
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon dried red pepper flake
- Fire up your Big Easy.
- Add the fries to the cooking rack, or as I do, place them in 9″ non-stick pie pans. Place into the Big Easy and cook until golden brown, 20-30 minutes. Fries towards the bottom of the rack might get done sooner, so start checking them after 20 minutes.
- Pour the fries into a large bowl.
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
- Stir in the spices.
- Pour butter mixture over the fries and toss to coat. Note: It’s completely optional, but you can also return the fries to the Big Easy, after coating them, for about 5 minutes to get a little extra crunch on them and kind of ‘set’ the spices and butter.
