Crispy French Fries

Usually I make baked french fries so I can throw them in the oven and they aren't much work. In fact I have a great recipe on here for that. But for Christmas my mom got me a new fryer.........which is just trouble for me. I now want to fry EVERYTHING. I might eventually come up with the new best fried food sensation!! Probably not, but I'll work on it....

So how do you get a really nice crispy french fry?? Double fry it.

Peanut Oil (or whatever frying oil you prefer)
Russet potato

I HIGHLY suggest using a fryer with a metal basket for these, it will make your life so much easier.

Set your fryer or heat your oil to 340*. While that is heating up cut your potatoes into 1/2 in sticks.

Once your oil is up to temperature place several in for 7 minutes. Once they are done pull the basket up and let the oil fall off them for a minute. If you aren't using a fryer with a basket, just scoop the fries out and set them on a plate with a paper towel. Turn up the heat to 375*. Place the fries back in for another 7 minutes or until they are light golden brown.

Once you take them out salt them! You need a little oil on them to help the salt stick. They will cook a little more once they are out so don't let them get too brown in the fryer.

I personally suggest going all out and having and awesome BLT with your fries!! These fries are so good! Soft on the inside and once and crispy on the outside! Hope you all have fun frying stuff up!!
