Crispy and delicious and so simple to make!

Crispy French Fries are the perfect addition to bbq burgers, Fried Chicken Strips or just about any dinner you have planned. 


How to Make French Fries:

Scrub and peel potatoes.  Cut into even slices.  Cover potatoes with cold water until you are ready to fry them.  Drain and pat dry with paper towels. 

Heat oil in a dutch oven or deep skillet to 350°. We love to do this outside in our outdoor kitchen using our propane burner. It’s easy to do while we are grilling. Fry potatoes in batches, not over crowding the pan about 3- 5 minutes. Fries will not be all the way cooked. Remove to a paper towel lined wire rack. Raise the heat until the oil reaches 400°. 

Fry French Fries for a second time, in batches, for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through and crispy.

Drain fries on paper towel lined wire rack. Season with kosher salt or your favorite seasoning blend.  Cooking Variation: If you only want to fry the potatoes once, heat oil to 375°.  Fry potatoes in batches for 8 – 10 minutes or until cooked through. Fries will not be as crispy, but still delicious. Season with salt.  Tips for Crispy French Fries: Use scrubbed and peeled russet potatoes for your fries. Cut your potatoes into even slices or use a vegetable chopper.  The best oil for frying is peanut oil or vegetable oil.  Use a thermometer to keep an eye on your oil temperature. Don’t over crowd the pan, fry in batches.  For the crispiest french fries, you will need to fry them twice. It’s a bit of extra work but they are more like restaurant fries if you make the extra step.  Drain fries on a wire rack covered with paper towels. Season fries right when they come out of the oil.  Best Dipping Sauces For Fries:
Ketchup is always a favorite but if you like it spicy, try Sriracha Comeback Sauce. 

If you are like me and not a fan of ketchup, try my Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce! It is my favorite for fries.

Do you like mustard on your fries? This easy Mustard BBQ Sauce is perfect for dipping!

We love serving fries up with our favorite burgers like these Mustard BBQ Burgers!
