The true secret to the best Belgian fries is the twice frying of the potatoes! And specifically using a Bintje potato!


  1. Of course, peel the potatoes and cut into fries.
  2. Dab the potatoes dry with a clean dish towel.
  3. Cook the potatoes in the fryer at 300°F (145°C) until they are about half done.
  4. Take them out of the oil and let them cool (half hour is good).
  5. Reheat oil to 365°F (180-190°C) and fry the fries again until they turn golden.
  6. Drain well, salt to taste.
