Outstanding! We didn't make it easy. We used Yukon Gold potatoes, which, although they're better for you--don't like to crisp up when they fry, and we tried a new oil, thanks to Dr. Oz--Rice Bran oil. They were PERFECT! I missed the Oregano; I'll try it next time. We salted them fresh out of the fryer, then sprinkled them with a little black truffle oil. THANK YOU for this technique. :o)
Rating the method, as my dear husband crinkled his nose up when I mentioned putting oregano on fries... so I caved and just sprinkled on some fry seasoning. I used the Cuisinart with the 6 mm fry blade and this may have been a bit too thin, but just cut back on cooking time. It's been over an hour since I made these, and they are still crisp at room temp, and the picky 4 year old ate them for dinner so these are a winner in my book! Will outvote husband next time and try the oregano, cause I think it sounds great!
Wow, I never knew that fresh Greek Oregano could be so *good* with french fries! To be honest, I was skeptical at first about including this ingredient, but I am glad I did. The aroma after the oregano heats up is fantastic. I had some trouble keeping my oil's heat regulated, but that was due to my electric stove and not anything to do with the recipe, but my fries got too brown too fast, and I actually skipped the second frying step. The fries still turned out just fine. Thanks for posting a great recipe!
Yum! We had these with Houdini Burgers tonight for a "better than a restaurant" meal!
One of the BEST ways I know to achieve crip French Fries EVERY time, is to cover them fist with a FINE coating of cornstarch. Then, fry once, drain and fry again. I got this idea from David Rosengarten, and it has not failed me in 10 years. GA Gutekunst, Medford, NJ
Great fries. I especially like the fact that they can be frozen after the first frying, until you are ready for them. I have been told by DW to throw out all my other french fry recipes!! Thanks for posting this great technique for us. jim
Perfect Fries!!! I made them in the afternoon and fried them right before dinner the second time... they were crisp and wonderful... but they were done in seconds, not minutes the second time LOL - I must have had the heat up too high! Thanks ev!
This is a great way to make French Fries, I even half-fry them, then freeze them in bags, then just take out as needed, (defrost in microwave) and fry again for just a just couple of minutes, much better then the store-bought bagged fries that are really dry, and have no taste...yes, they are good with oregano!.....Kittencal:)
I agree with the recipe poster about the oregano being a must in this recipe. Oregano on these potatoes rocks! I've made it several times and we all LOVE eating these. This recipe is a must try!!!
