Homemade French Fries
My family loves french fries, especially since we love making meals on the grill- steak, burgers, hot dogs, it makes sense why fries are of such high demand in the household. This is a lovely way to keep them happy at an affordable price, just takes a bit of elbow grease!
Prep 15 m - Cook 10 m - Ready In 25 m
What you will need:
2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion salt
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1/2 cup water, or as needed
1 cup vegetable oil for frying
Slice potatoes into quarters, and then split quarters in half, repeat until you've reached the desired size of your french fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt, salt, and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir enough into the water so that the mixture can be drizzled with a spoon.
Dip potato slices into the mixture one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.
