These were great. Normally my homemade fries are nice and golden on the outside and raw in the center or limp. These were crispy on the outside and nice and tender on the inside. Thanks for helping me finally make a delicious homemade french fry!

We loved everything about these fries, and even DD had a couple! I made them extra long, using lg. potatoes, so she could grab one and make a fist and knaw on it until it was gone. She had a ball dipping it in the ketchup and taking bites. DS and DH ate like troopers so it's another 5 star winner for us! Thank you!

I have used this method for years and was glad to see this posted here for others to try. I love my fries nice and golden brown, so I left mine in for a few more minutes. I sprinkled with salt and dipped in malt vinegar and ketchup and had along with a delicious burger! What a great combo!

I chose this recipe because it has a technique that seemed foolproof and I was right. It made golden fries that were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and cooked just right. I sprinkled with a little Tony Chachere's seasoning right after frying and we enjoyed them along with our burgers. I will use this recipe from now on, as the results are excellent! Thanks for sharing!

Great easy recipe. I like to sprinkle the fries with Weber's Sweet'N Tangy BBQ Seasoning and garlic powder. Thanks for sharing.

I've used this recipe 3 times now and I have to say it's the best way to make homemade french fries! Thanks so much!

This makes crispy delicious fries that are not grease soaked and loaded with fat. We enjoyed them so much with scallops and coleslaw. These are awesome fries! Thanks for posting Bekah!

Spot on - if you don't have time to dry out your potatoes you must double-cook them to get the dry crispy texture.

I wanted a real basic fry recipe to have along with Oven-Baked Buttermilk Chicken. This fit the bill, and we all were VERY HAPPY munching out on these! I think the double frying is the key to nice crispy fries, and that's how I like em!
