Eat It: Baked French Fries
French fries how I love thee.
If only your fried goodness was good to my heart.
You deliciously evil thing.
It is my goal in life to find healthy french fries.
Okay, it's only my goal until my attention fades away.
I tried this recipe from Annie's Eats and they were great. The trick is to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. And this is the first time using kosher salt. My new rule for life is that you must use kosher salt for french fries!
Because the burgers were not done cooking when the fries were done I wrapped them in foil to keep them warm. Please learn from me all you crispy lovers out there! Do not wrap your fries in foil. Your crispiness will become floppiness. And that makes all french fries weep. So what have we learned?
1. soak fries in water for 30 minutes
2. use kosher salt
3. time your cooking better so you will not use foil in desperation for hot fries
I will be trying this recipe again following all my rules closely next time.
