This is probably the most classic way to make homemade fries – and it doesn’t take too much time or effort! You’re going to want to cut your fries into whatever size you like, whether that be classic and thin or rustic and chunky. Next, boil them for just a few minutes in some salted water before patting them dry. Now, throw them in the oven to cook until they’re crispy and delicious.
If you’re lucky enough to have a deep-fat fryer at home, then you can make your fries just like the fast-food joints! Again, you’ll want to boil them slightly in some salted water before patting them dry to start. Now, just pop them in the basket and let them sizzle away in the oil. The thinner the fries, the less time they’ll need to be cooked.
Want to mix things up a little? How about making fries out of anything but potato. Some of our favorites include zucchini fries, which are ideal when either baked in the oven or put in the deep-fat fryer. Sweet potato also works really well, and can be finished off with a sprinkling of parmesan. You can also try carrots, pumpkin, parsnips, and just about any other root vegetable you can think of. They’re always delicious!
The next time you think about ordering fries, stop. You can make some of the best homemade fries in a fraction of time and they’re far more delicious than soggy fries from a fast food joint.
