Have you ever made your own french fries?

I've taken the Idaho potatoes, peeled them and sliced them as evenly as possible and put them in the deep fryer. They taste so much better than the frozen and have come out cheaper. I usually sprinkle salt on them to our likings here. So much tastier!

  • I make sweet potato fries. I bake them after cutting them up to avoid the grease and it makes it healthier.

  • I haven't since I lived at home. We had a fry cutter, the old school one :)

  • I just did for the first time two days ago. I dont have a fryer, but fried them in a pan, it took a lot of time, because you can only do so many in a pan, but we had a lot of leftovers, and I froze them, they taste great heated up in the oven. They were very good though.

  • Love them, I find if you towel dry (so to speak) the cut up potatos they come out much crispier.
