Garlicky Fries (Papas Fritas)

. . 1 comment:
My beau simply loves papas fritas and it´s from him I learned how to make homemade fries with just a potato, cutting board, parer, and knife.  These fries taste far better than McDonald´s fries and also way less expensive.  The cost to make 2.5 lbs of fries was $0.50 for the potatoes, about $0.75 for oil to fry (we can use to fry other foods, too).  This made about 3-4 large order of McDonald´s fries, which is about $9 total.

Servings:  4

  • 2.5 lbs potatoes, peeled
  • 3 cups of oil for frying
  • 1 Tbspn sea salt
  • 1 Tbpsn garlic powder
  • Rinse the peeled potatoes with water.
  • Cut off ends of potatoes, then slice potatoes lengthwise, then slice those potatoes lengthwise to get a rectangular shaped fry.  With the ends, slice lengthwise.
  • Heat oil for frying in a large skillet or Dutch oven on medium high heat.
  • If oil is smoking, that is too hot. It is hot enough when you place a wooden spoon into the oil and it bubbles all around, but the oil is not smoking.
  • Sprinkle and evenly coat the potato fries with sea salt and garlic powder.  
  • Place cut up potatoes into the oil.
  • Fry fries for 4-8 lbs, turning periodically, making sure it´s a lightly tanned color.  
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve warm.
