French Fries

I love french fries! There is no hiding my love for them. Everyone that knows me, knows that I can eat french fries anytime of the day with just about anything. The only problem with french fries is,  I’d rather eat store bought frozen fries, instead of fresh cut french fries. It seems that the fresh cut fries, don’t seem to crisp up like the ones that have been frozen.

A fellow blogger shared her way of making fresh cut fresh french fries. I tried her method of making them and all I can say is,”WOWZERS!” These taste so much like “real” french fries, as my son states every time, we make them.

The one thing that is different when making these is you dust them with flour. Well, blow me down! I never would have thought to give the potatoes a bit of flour. Let me tell you, “You won’t be disappointed,” when trying this method of cooking french fries.
If you have a mandolin and a breading bowl, this would be a perfect time to use them.


And have you tried freezing potatoes? I have and it was not a pretty sight. Maybe, I didn't do something right. After all, all I did was put the extra potatoes in a freezer bag and threw them in the freezer, with my fingers crossed that they would behave. I guess, maybe they need a “fast” flash of freezing to behave. Oh well!



French Fries
4-5 potatoes sliced
2 cups flour
Salt
Pepper
Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blend
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Chili Powder

You’ll have to play with your seasonings to suit your tastes.

Preheat oil.

In a small bowl, mix the flour, pepper, Mrs. Dash, garlic powder, onion powder and chili powder.

Put the seasoning in the breader.

Add a few potatoes and give it a good shake. (You don’t want to put too many potatoes in at once, the flour will become soggy, while waiting for a batch to cook.)

 Place potatoes in the hot oil and cook until they begin to brown.

 It doesn’t take long for these to cook, if the potatoes are cut thin.

 Drain on paper towels, or butcher paper. Season with salt while the fries are still hot.
