I came across this recipe while trying to find that Tomatillo Soup on the Zupas Blog that my sister made and immediately tried/made them. I fell head over hills. Instantly.
I'd recommend these to anyone! Especially someone that's trying to rid fast food. They literally taste better than fast food fries in my opinion. But I would recommend Sea Salt, for some reason it makes a big difference.
"This is more of a method than a recipe, because times will all depend on how thick and big you cut your potato slices. But the secret? Boiling the fries before they go into the oven. Believe me - it makes the inside nice and soft while the outside gets crispy from a high oven temperature. And it speeds up the process as well!"
1st - set a pot of water over high heat to get it boiling. Also preheat your oven to the highest temperature it will go to.
2nd - cut your potatoes. I like mine thinner, but you can definitley do big wedges or small stick - however you prefer your fries. Leave the peel on or take them off -it’s all up to you!
3rd - drop the potatoes into the boiling water. Cook until just barely tender - make sure you don’t cook them so much that they fall apart!
4th - drain potatoes and transfer to a baking sheet. Cover with olive oil and any seasoning you want. Put into the preheated oven.
5th - Cook until crispy on the edges. I like to turn mine once or twice during this time so that they get evenly browned.
6th - remove from oven and enjoy - I like mine with some fry sauce!!
