I am so happy Spring is just around the corner. We love to cook out and have friends and family over when the weather is nice. If we are doing the standard burgers and fries, then I always have to make my Homemade French Fries to go along as a side.
Not too long ago I was baking my fries, but with these delicious bites, sometimes you just have to break out the fryer.
Homemade French Fries
To make these delicious fries, you need just a few things:
- 4 sliced, fresh potatoes
- vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup basil
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 garlic powder
- garlic salt with parsley (to sprinkle)
Step 1: Take your sliced fries and place them in a large mixing bowl. Add in your basil and garlic powder and mix well, coating them as evenly as possible.
Step 2: Add in the flour and again mix well.
Step 3: Heat up your vegetable oil and cook until floating on top and very lightly brown.
Step 4: Remove from oil and place on napkins to remove excess oil. Then sprinkle with a dash of garlic salt and parsley to while still hot. Serve immediately.
I love making this recipe, as it is always a nice favorite among friends and family. It may not be the healthiest recipe in the family cook book, but it sure is tasty!
Cooking out is always a fun tradition in our family, and we always look forward to having friends and family over to share meals with. Sharing our favorite meals and spending time outside are always fun times.
Do you like to grill out when the weather is warm? We have an extra large Big Green Egg (grill) so we are outside more times than not when we have beautiful weather. I am looking forward to Spring, being outside more, catching up with friends, and serving a few more Homemade French Fries.
