Every once in a while something like this text exchange happens:
Me: I have nothing planned for dinner
Him: I’ll take care of it
WOOOHOOOOOOOOO! Something awesome (like breakfast for dinner!) always comes of this. And tonight it was his most delicious, perfect homemade fries. So. Freaking. Good. Here you go.
WHAT YOU NEED
* 3 potatoes
* peanut, sunflower, or grapeseed oil for frying
* garlic powder
* dry parsley
WHAT TO DO
Peel the potatoes and cut them down into about quarter-inch-ish strips.
Bring oil, about 2-3 inches deep, to a boil in a deep, high-sided pot.
Add the potatoes to the pot, working in batches if the pot is too crowded.
Fry 8-10 minutes, moving them around periodically to ensure they fry evenly and don’t stick together. Test a fry to make sure they’re cooked through, and be sure to remove them before they burn.
Drain them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil, then season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley, and dig in!
