would you like fries with that? – Fridays Off

would you like fries with that?

If you were to ask me what my one vice is I'd have to say my love for chips and fries (love the salty snacks!) In fact my love for chips is so deep that I once gave them up for 40 days just to see if I could do it (suffered major withdrawal symptoms, but did it). Anyway, last night I had a hankering for fries to accompany my western sandwich and normally I would make my own, but I'll admit I was feeling lazy, so I picked some up at Chippy's. Honestly, they're fries aren't as good as mine (I know they're Toronto's Best Fish & Chip shop). So here let me share my recipe with y'all. My mouth is already watering!

You'll need:

  • 3-5 potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt

Here's what you do:

  1. Chop potatoes into chunky sticks and pat dry with paper towel
  2. Toss them in a metal baking pan and place in oven while it's preheating to 450F (this step sucks out the moisture)
  3. Once the oven is preheated pour a tablespoon of olive oil over the potatoes and toss them around (you want just enough to slightly coat them, too much oil is bad and results in greasy fries, yuck!)
  4. Let them bake for about 25-30 minutes until nice and crispy and be sure to continually check on them and stir them up to avoid sticking
  5. When they're golden brown pull them out of the oven, toss with salt and pepper or any seasoning you like

Love step 2, never thought of that! May I add a suggestion as well? Chop up some fresh rosemary and add before baking. Rosemary is a potato’s best friend! :)
