Happy Succulent Sunday, everyone! Today I want to show you how to make easy homemade french fries.
I served these with Jenny-O turkey burgers and, instead of using a bun, I put it between two pieces of lettuce and added a little bit of cheese.
I usually use grape seed oil, because of it’s very high smoke point, but I recently discovered that corn oil has a smoke point of 400 degrees so it’s definitely a more budget friendly way to fry foods at home. For this recipe you’ll need potatoes, oil, and any seasoning that you prefer.
I happened to have gold potatoes on hand so that’s what I used for this recipe.
The potatoes fry really well when they’re frying in oil between 250-325 degrees.
Once you’ve peeled and cut your potatoes (and your oil is arm enough), place them in a single layer in your oil. Whenever you’re frying something, you’ll want to make sure that you’re watching it carefully (heat + oil = fire). When your potatoes start to turn into a nice golden brown, they’re ready.
When you’re ready, carefully take the potatoes out of the oil and place them in a single layer on paper towels (to soak up the oil).
Season immediately (if you’re going to). I used taco seasoning for mine.
Serve & Enjoy!
