Homemade french fries are a guilty pleasure I allow my self every once in a while. This is not really a recipe,it's my method for making seasoned FF.Instead of frying twice,I cook them slightly then fry until crisp. Taste the seasoning mix,it should be slightly salty and spicy,that makes good fries! I often make garlic fries by adding minced fresh garlic and finely grated Parmesan cheese on the hot fries.DELICIOUS!!
You can also cook these in a deep fryer.I usually pan fry them.

How to Make Homemade French Fries,my way


  1. Peel and rinse the potatoes. Cut them into sticks by cutting the potato in 4 or 5 vertical pieces, and then cutting each piece into sticks.
    Place them in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Allow them to soak, 2-3 hours.
    Mix seasonings together in a small bowl.Set aside.
    When you're ready to make the fries, drain the water,place potatoes and enough cold water to cover,microwave 10 mins.or cook on stove for about 10 mins.just until potatoes are barely tender. Carefully drain water,lay the potatoes on 2 baking sheets lined with paper towels. Blot with paper towels and dry them well.
    Heat a few inches of oil until it reaches 400 degrees F. When the oil's hot, fry potatoes in batches again, cooking until the fries are golden and crisp. Remove the potatoes from the oil and drain on paper bag.Sprinkle with seasoning.
