Homemade French Fries

Homemade French fries are hard to beat. Especially when you top them with shredded cheese, chili or gravy.

You can easily make home fries, french fries or shoestring potatoes - it's just how you cut them.  Feel free to use sweet potatoes if you wish, they are wonderful when you dip them in marshmallow fluff.


Homemade French Fries


Roast Potato Wedges

ROAST FRENCH FRIES/POTATO WEDGES

Ingredients

4 large russet potatoes
4 TBS canola oil
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1/2 tsp homemade chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees.

Cut potatoes into wedges or into fries.. Mix olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder together. Coat potatoes with oil/spice mixture and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes and take out of the oven. Turn over and bake another 20 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with kosher salt immediately after bringing them out of the oven.

NOTE

You can also mix everything in a gallon size resealable bag. For the spices, I have used freshly minced garlic, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, and chili powder. I used 6 potatoes (4 russet, 2 sweet) and 1/3 cup oil. Fantastic. 

Try dunking these in ranch dressing.  Out of this world good.

Homemade French Fries

For these homemade french fries, try adding Cajun spices or chipolte seasoning instead of the paprika, it gives them a little kick.

DEEP-FRIED FRENCH FRIES

Ingredients

2-1/2 lbs russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into fries
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 cup water
1 cup canola oil for frying
1 tsp kosher salt
paper bag to drain fries on

Directions

Slice potatoes and place into cold salt 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 powder, onion powder, and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon. Pour into a plastic bowl with a tight-fitting lid.

Drain fries from water and dry. Place fries into the batter, and shake well for 2 minutes or until all fries are covered evenly.

Drop into hot oil with tongs and let the batter set up ever so slightly - then separate them by shaking the bunches until they came apart (about one minute into frying).

Add to the hot oil with tongs - divide into batches so they are not touching when cooking. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on brown paper bag - season with kosher salt immediately after removing.  


Homemade French Fries
These potato strings (shoestring potatoes) are so easy to make. Just use a spiral vegetable slicer and fry them until golden brown.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
