I found the recipe on the internet. It's amazing. I have also used frozen french fries instead of fresh potatoes and it came out great.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 lbs potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 12 cup water (or more)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. While the oil is heating, sift the flour and spices into a large bowl.
  4. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
  5. Dip potato slices into the batter one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first.
  6. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together.
  7. Fry until golden brown and crispy.
  8. Remove and drain on paper towels.

This sounds very good. I can't help but wonder how the batter would be on fried zucchini served with ranch dip.

Horrible!!! Turned out bad and I am a good cook. Did not have good taste and batter kept falling off. Would not recomend!
