Homemade French Fries

by Carrie on February 8, 2011

When Adam and I started dating he lived about an hour from me. We often met in the middle. But every once in a while I would go out to his apartment. We always had trouble deciding where to go for dinner as we had two favorite restaurants in town. A chinese restaurant that has the best chinese I have ever had HANDS DOWN! Or a place called Dicks Bar and grill. There food was amazing. My favorite thing there is their french fries. They are skin on skinny just amazing fries. Adam has told me since we met oh like seven years ago that he would make me fries as he use to work in this kitchen and knew the secrets.

Yet I was still waiting, until last weekend. He finally made them for me, and let me tell you they were just as good without the mileage and gas to drive the hour to the restaurant.

Skin-On French Fries (From: Adam)

  • 4 large russet  cut into 1/4 by 1/4-inch thick strips
  • 2 quarts oil
  • Seasoning Salt

Wash potatoes and cut into 1/4 by 1/4 inch strips. Cover with cold water by 1 inch and then cover completely with ice. Refrigerate for 3 hours or up to 1 day.

Preheat oil to 325. Drain potatoes and deep fry for 10-15 minutes or until desired doneness. We like ours semi-crunchy so we did about 20 minutes.

Drain from oil and season with seasoning salt. Eat while hot.

I think the best part of these fries is that he made them for you.
