I love french fries.
No, seriously, I really love french fries.
I remember as a child munching on Bob's Burgers fries and double dipping in ketchup. This was before I understand that double dipping is not allowed. (So now I just turn the fry over to dunk the other side if I'm sharing the dip.)
Anyway, I digress. Back to my love of fries.
I recently saw a reference to oven fries somewhere and it mentioned par-cooking in some manner. I've looked and looked and couldn't figure out where I had seen that reference.
Since I couldn't find the recipe I decided to wing it.
5-6 russet potatoes
1 TBSP vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1-2 tsp of assorted spices
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Rinse and scrub the potatoes.
They should be slightly crisp and delicious. Add a few more minutes to the cooking time if you want your fries a bit more like chips.
I like to dip mine in mayo with a touch of ketchup and vinegar.
