DIRECTIONS

  • Peel potatoes and cut into sticks about 1/2" thick and 4" long.
  • Drop them into a bowl of cold water immediately after cutting to prevent discoloration.
  • Pour 3" of oil into a deep fryer and heat to 350.
  • Meanwhile, drain the potatoes and pat with paper towels until dry.
  • Add the potatoes to the hot oil in batches that allow the potatoes to fry in a single layer (not too many at a time).
  • Fry for about 5 minutes, or until they just turn brown.
  • Remove them from the oil and place on paper towels to drain.
  • Continue cooking each batch until they are all fried.
  • Be sure to bring the temperature of the oil back up between batches.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet, in a single layer, and place in the freezer for one hour.
  • Process the corn flakes and panko in a blender or food processor until fine.
  • Pour into a shallow bowl.
  • Combine the flour, salt and cayenne in a second shallow bowl.
  • In a third bowl, lightly beat the eggs.
  • Roll the partially frozen potato sticks in the flour, then dip them in the eggs, shaking off the excess, and then roll in the cornflake mixture.
  • Repeat this process a second time, and place each fry in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Heat the oil to 375.
  • Fry the potatoes in batches for 3- 4 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
