French Fry Flowers

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.

Once you have sliced the potatoes use your flower shaped cookie cutter on each round slice.

Once you have made your flower shapes then take your icing tip and creat small holes in the center of each flower.

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!
