PERFECT Home Cut Fries
So everyone craves fries, we can admit that. and if you have already cut them, they're great when entertaining, since they require very little babysitting. Don't they look delicious?!
Russet (or any) Potatoes
GARLIC (or garlic powder)
Salt & Pepper
1. Preheat oven to 425. Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1-2cm slices, then again into large french fry style matchsticks.
2. Let potatoes rest in cold water for half an hour (this keeps them crunchy!). Make sure you dry them off REALLY WELL (I think you'd be safe to bag and freeze them at this point if you wanted)
3. Drain potatoes and toss with remaining ingredients. Arrange in a single layer on baking sheet, and cook for 15 minutes, turn and cook another 15 minutes, or until nice and crispy.
*Serve with mayo mixed with the spiciest hot sauce you have; we use a Caribbean pepper sauce!
