I love making homemade french fries. They are so yummy and easy! I decided to get a little creative this time and make flower shapes from my potato slices. This is also a fun way for the kids to eat french fries.
supplies: 2 large russet potatoes, cutting board, sharp knife, 1 small flower shaped cookie cutter, an icing tip with a large circular top size 12, 2-3 inch deep skillet, veggie oil, salt, metal slotted spoon
First you will need two large potatoes, I used russet potatoes. Peel and slice the potatoes. Cut the potato in half width wise then slice into 1/2 an inch thick pieces.
After you have cut all your potatoes then begin heating the veggie oil in your skillet. Pour about 2 inches deep of veggie oil in your skillet and heat on med-high. You will know your oil is ready when you see small bubbles begin to surface. Add your potatoes a few at a time and cook until light golden brown.
When they are done cooking place them on a paper towel lined bowl so that the excess oil can drain off. Salt the fries once they have come out of the oil. Serve with your favorite condiment. ENJOY!
