Helpful Tips

  • Choose the Right Potatoes: Use starchy potatoes like Russets for the crispiest fries. Their high starch content helps achieve that perfect golden-brown exterior and fluffy interior. Cut them evenly to ensure they cook at the same rate.
  • Go the Easy Route: You can use frozen French fries for this recipe, just make sure to season them as they are cooking.
  • Season Immediately: Season your fries with salt and any other desired spices immediately after frying, while they are still hot. This helps the seasoning stick better to the fries. For Greek fries, toss them with crumbled feta, chopped fresh herbs like parsley or oregano.
