Who doesn’t love good french fries? I certainly love them every so often. After I learned how to make really good fries at home, the ones in restaurants didn’t taste quite as good!
A few years ago, I learned the secret to making really good fries. You absolutely have to soak them in water before baking them! Also, salting the fries, and adding paprika is very important.
I love my crinkle cutter. It is really inexpensive, and makes my homemade fries fun! Plus, the thing is really easy to cut with! You can find them on amazon, but I have not really seen them in many stores.
Here is a video tutorial on how I made these crinkle fries. They are super crispy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside.
Perfect Crinkle French Fries ( Serves 2-4)
2 Russet Potatoes
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
1-2 teaspoons paprika
1-2 teaspoons of salt
Method: Preheat oven to 400f Peel potatoes and use your french fry crinkle cutter to cut the potatoes into fries. ( If you don’t have a crinkle cutter, I suppose you can just cut them into normal fry shape.) . Soak in water for 5 minutes and pat dry with a paper towel. Arrange fries on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt and paprika. Bake them at 400 f for 15-20 minutes- until they are crispy to your liking.
Man, these fries are perfect every time. I might have just convinced myself to make them again for dinner tonight!
