Cuisine: French

French fries. We have an on-again off-again relationship.

Meaning I stuff my face with them once a month then swear off them until we meet again next month.

Thankfully, however, I’ve recently mastered the art of making fries at home super crispy style sans frying. Score! Now the two of us can see each other much more often – thank goodness.

I’ve made french fries before that required soaking in warm water before baking. Too much time and effort I say! These guys go straight into the oven at a high temp for ultimate crispiness.

It’s the matchstick shape and high temperature that helps them cook faster and get that golden brown crisp.

For another wave of flavor I sauteed some minced garlic in olive oil to toss with the fries fresh out of the oven. This is an optional step but certainly one that adds more zest and depth of flavor

They make perfect party appetizers and are sure to impress your growing throng of friends. If you give these a try, be sure to take a picture and tag me.... so we can be fry besties. Cheers
