Questions & Replies

  1. Has anyone tried making these fries in an air fryer? How long did you cook and how did they turn out?
  2. Maybe a stupid question but what exactly do you mean by salted water?
  3. What gadet and how do I make Crinkle Cur Fries? Thank You: Crystal Lynch
  4. What type of oil?


  1. After cutting your fries into whatever shape you like , try putting into large enough bowl And drizzling with canola, mixing them up and then sprinkling enough McCormack's grill seasoning all over and mix again . Get your bake sheet and place a piece of baker's parchment on it then spread the fries and bake st about 425 for about 35 to 40 minutes.. check at about 10 to 15 minutes and turn and rotate the pan. It depends if you like match sticks or steak or regular size how long they take so bake time will vary.
  2. This is the only recipe I have found that boils the potatoes first. It is the KEY to a crunchy outside and fluffy (not soggy) inside for the fries. This recipe gets an A+ for breaking the key to homemade fries!
  3. I use Slap Ya Mama, a Cajun blend of salt, red and black ground peppers. It's great on fries and most everything else!!
  4. The family loved these. Although fried, it didn't taste oily at all. Easy to make and with excellent results. It took longer than expected for fries to brown and crisp up, but worth the while nonetheless! (Remember to use/pick potatoes of similar size so that they cook evenly while boiling.) Thanks for posting!
  5. One of my favorite dishes, I made it at my home once a week. Thanks for your article because your step by step explanation impress me.thank you so much for share this great dish.


  1. Instead of boiling I have been cutting into slices then microwave in a bowl of salted water about 4 min, drain hot water, sometimes i soak in ice water before frying. Always dry potatoes with paper or dish towel
  2. Add'g MCCormack grill season'g
