How to Make Secret Mickey D' Style Fries! Shhhh!


  • 1Begin by peeling the potatoes and cutting the ends to be squared. Make 3/8 inch fries. (thin sticks)
  • 2Soak them in cold water for 1 hour then drain and add fresh water to saok another hour. Total of two hours soaking. *** If you don't soak them, it will not taste as good.
  • 3In a large heavy pot add the oil to about an inch deep, enough to just cover the potato fries. Before adding the fries heat the oil to 290 degrees.
  • 4Gently cook the potatoes for 2.5 minutes. They should be pale and not cooked through.

    Place on a paper towel on a sheet pan and cool in the refrigerator to stop the cooking process.
    ( At this point you can wait to finish cooking them until guests arrive )
  • 5Heat oil to 370 degrees and cook fries until golden. Cook to the crispiness you desire, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir them around while cooking.
  • 6Remove from pan and mix with salt to taste. You can place on paper towel but "others" do not do that.
