I know it's a tricky choice to make the decision to make-at-home something that you can get at the grocery store, but trust me, these are so much better! You'll NEVER go back!

Ingredients

peanut oil [for frying]
6
medium russet potatoes, peeled and rough-cut into 1" squares
3 tsp
cornstarch
2 Tbsp
kosher salt
1 tsp
white sugar
1/2 tsp
ground white pepper

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oil to 325 degrees and par-fry potatoes [in batches] and drain on paper towels. When complete, cool to the point where you can handle comfortably in your hand. Take oil off heat.
2Press par-fried potatoes through potato ricer and reserve in mixing bowl.
3Sprinkle over cornstarch, kosher salt, sugar and pepper. Carefully "coat" the potato "rice" without creating mashed potatoes.
4Place 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the potato mixture on parchment paper and carefully roll into a "log" that is 3/4" in diameter. Chill the "logs" in the refrigerator for no less than an hour.
5Reheat oil to 375 degrees.
6Cut potato "logs" into 1" to 1 1/4" long sections and fry until golden brown. Season with salt, pepper and dip in ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce or aioli! Enjoy!
