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

  • 1 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp
    garlic salt

How to Make Battered French Fries

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice potatoes into french fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.
  2. Heat 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.
  3. Dip 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.
