    These turned out great! My timing was off though because I was just starting to do the second fry when the burgers were ready. I'll definitely make it again but start a little sooner 😊

    This recipe is perfect. After I fried them on medium heat and then fried them on high heat I tossed them in some salt pepper and parsley. Everyone is still asking for these fries.

    I found it difficult to keep the temperature where I wanted, but they still came out perfect. I just had to pull them out sooner, because my oil was too hot.

    Hi, I"m Belgian, and everyone knows that Belgians make the best french fries. No one knows why they are called french fries anyways. We are used to bake fries like this, deep fry them twice. We therefore use a deepfrier with a netted basked so we can lower them easily in the oil and take them out just as easily. HOWEVER, you DO NOT SOAK the potatoes. If they stick, they will unstick the second time you bake them. You need all the starch ON the potatoe so that they can be crispy. It's the starch that gets crispy. You bake - or frie, however you call it- by immersing them fully in the oil. So 1 1/2inch of oil is not enough. It's best to fill your cast iron pot up to a third with oil. It's just ridiculous to fry ten fries at a time. But i must say, you do have the basics right and they look like really good fries. Talk more with Belgians, they'll love you for it. I know i do, Love, Newton

    Easy to make. I would probably cook them a little longer at 350 but they were a hit as is.

    This is our favorite recipe for homemade French fries. This recipe has spoiled us for eating fries at a restaurant or buying frozen fries to have at home. Since I found this recipe a couple of months ago we have made these fries about 4 times. We even went and bought a nice T-Fal deep fryer to make the frying easier.

    This is the best way to do it! ;) My mom makes fries like this and it's just perfect, soft in the inside and crispy in the outside...just the way I like it.
