These delicious, slender fries have a crisp exterior and a creamy interior, contain 1/3 less oil than traditional methods, and could not be easier to make. Recipe is from Cook's Illustrated (July, 2009) and the method is attributed to Michelin-starred French chef Jöel Robuchon. It skips the usual rinsing and soaking and you only need to fry once. You must use Yukon golds (Russets are too starchy).
The Colonel was in the kitchen one day and had an idea what to do with the potatoes that he had and he came up with the Potato Wedges. The used to be made fresh but due to the invention of the frozen fry they are sent to the stores frozen and ready to cook.

These country-style home fries are a wonderful accompaniment to any breakfast, brunch or (in my family's case) breakfast for dinner. They turn out buttery and savory with a crispy brown outer coating. I like to serve these home fries when I make breakfast for dinner for my family. We enjoy them with a juicy, smokey ham steak cooked in my cast iron skillet with a side of baby peas. Yum!
A lovely very basic recipe for the traditional food of Chanukah, with an unusual variation or two. So easy even the most beginner cook can do it.
