Happy Fry-day friends! Honestly I waited until Friday to post this so I could use that pun and I’m not even ashamed to admit it. Anyways, I don’t know about you, but there is something about fries that make them one of the best comfort foods. Maybe it’s the smell, or how they look, or how they taste…are you hungry yet? Yeah, me too.
Simple and quick to make, these fries will not disappoint. Often times when I make fries at home with other recipes, it is hard to get them to actually be crispy and not soggy. The trick is washing them in cold water after being cut and then baking them at a high temperature. When you wash them in cold water, it removes the starch on the surface of the potatoes which helps with their color and crispness. This recipe is made for 2-4 people, but it is very easy to double if you are making them for a larger crowd or just really hungry. I hope your weekend is filled with moments of joy and gathering around a table with one of the best comfort foods out there.
