This is a Crisco recipe I have used for years. It is for sure "family approved" and these are "on hand ingredients". You don't have to stop at the grocery store after work.

    Hint: You can mix this up earier in the day and cover and refrigerate. The colder mixture fries really crisp. I usually double this recipe. They go fast and they are also good cold. You could add 2 tblsp prepared horseradish OR about 1/2 tsp dill weed into mixture for different flavors.
