January's New Dish

So two days ago my hubby was having a craving for french fries, big ones with peel. I pointed towards town and said "there is a Bill Millers right down the road!". He did not find that very amusing, even though I was laughing.

Since I promised I would try at least one new dish a month, you guessed it... I made french fries! Your probably thinking..."well that's not new" but for me it is. The last time I tried to fry potatoes (umm, probably 18 years ago) it turned to mush. I admit I can't fry. I actually do try to avoid all recipes that involve frying.

As soon as I decided I would give it a try, I called my bf for backup (the best fryer I know). First we did a trail run of 2 fries. Yup, my temp was too high. After some slight but edible trail runs, I successfully managed to make decent fries! AND the hubs loved and raved over them!

Only bad part is...


I've created a monster!

Wonder if he will notice the KFC bucket in the trash!

Ya' know, you can even fry French Fries twice. Yep...that's right. The first time, just fry 'em a little and don't let them get brown. Then pat them dry with a paper towel and let 'em cool off. Then fry the suckers again, letting them brown this time.

This will make crunchy outsides with tender insides.

Hey, if your gonna' fry....Fry Baby Fry!
