Battered French Fries

Maria Arkle


A change from regular fries, these are battered just like when you batter your chicken or fish. They are very very good!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Whoa... I would have never thought of battering french fries. These are delicious and a bit indulgent! The spices in the coating are yummy. Definitely a tasty way to serve fries.


2 1/2 lb
russet potatoes, peeled
1 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
garlic salt
1 tsp
onion salt
1 tsp
1/2 c
water, or as needed
1 c
vegetable oil for frying


1Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.
2Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
3Dip potato slices into the batter one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.
