Since this whole baking phase started, all the unhealthy food I eat has to be limited to all the desserts I make. But with all the sweets, I started to miss salty food.
It took me way too long to find this easy solution: Make my own french fries.
Making them was a nice change of pace, and it was easy to multi-task during certain parts of the process. And best of all, they taste so GOOD. I just need to make sure I don't eat too many.
These will taste much better than the fries you can get at a fast food restaurant. Crispy and golden with a sprinkling of a natural sea salt, they're healthier, cheaper, and have that warm homemade taste no one can resist. Continue reading to see the recipe!
Homemade French Fries
1 potato, washed and peeled
1 1/2 cups oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper
Slice potatoes evenly. Wash and drain until water is clear when washed. Soak in salt water for 30 minutes.
Pour enough oil in pan to cover potatoes. This will vary depending on the pan you use and/or the size of your fries. Let oil heat up, but do not bring to a boil or allow the oil to smoke. Put in fries in the pan and cook for 10-15 minutes at a lower temperature, until the insides are cooked and/or the color begins the change to a golden color.
When the raise temperature, cook until crispy and a golden brown color, about 5-10 minutes. Drain out as much oil as possible. Carefully place fries on a paper towel and gently soak out the remaining oil.
Toss the fries with sea salt and pepper while still warm.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
