Za'atar Oven Fries

One of my favorite sides to go with chicken, steak or a burger are definitely these za'atar fries. I was introduced to za'atar a few years back, but after my trip to Israel this year, that was when I actually started cooking with it. I love za'atar on pita, but the spice on these oven fries, it's perfect.

This recipe is super easy and it doesn't a whole lot of work, which is another reason why I love making these. The fries turn out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. If you can't find za'atar at your local grocery store, you might want to check out ordering it online. You can also try to make your blend, but I don't know if it would turn out exactly the same. If you do, let me know how it turns out!
