Homemade Fries...

These are so good and you don't even need a deep fryer to make them.  I don't buy store bought fries but do like to make them at home on occasion for a treat.

Here is the recipe I have been using for quite awhile and it's a favorite.

What you will need:
  • 2 1/2 pounds of potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water or more if needed.
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil for frying.
How to make them:
  1. Slice the potatoes into french fries and place into cold water so they won't brown while you prepare the oil.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt, and (regular) salt into a large bowl.  Gradually stir in the water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
  3. Drop a bunch of fries in the batter bowl and stir to they are coated with the mixture. Place the fries in the hot oil so they are not touching at first.  The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time or they will clump together.  Fry until golden brown and crispy.  Remove and drain on paper towels.
