There is but one food that I know for sure that both my husband and oldest daughter will eat- fries. I can also be positive that there won’t be even one left in the pan when dinner is over. The problem lies with trying to find the perfect method for getting them exactly the way we like them, crispy. Time and time again I would attempt a few different methods that only ended up with huge pieces of potato with spots of crispiness but mostly just soggy. Don’t get me wrong, I still ate them but deep down I wished they were crispier. Don’t we all? While we’ll never truly figure out the technique that McDonald’s has for the perfect french fry (or do you know? can you share?), we can try to get as close as possible.
There were two things different about this recipe than most that I’ve tried. 1) you boil the cut fries before you bake them and 2) you broil them towards the end to give them that extra crunch. Somebody has been using their noggin!
While I’m not completely sure this is the absolute best that home fries can be made, this is most definitely the BEST home fries that I’ve ever made! And the crispiest too. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think or any suggestions you may have. These would make a great side dish for Easy Black Bean Burgers.
