Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

They even stay crispy when you reheat in the microwave."






Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup water, or as needed
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying

Directions

  1. Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt, (regular) salt, and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
  3. Dip potato slices into the batter one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.





 BAKED VERSION
Instead of frying, I BAKED these in the oven, which took about an hour or longer, but they came out nice and crispy on the outside. I just used flour, seasoned salt, cayenne and basil, then added half water and half oil to make a batter. I will make these again the same way! Yum!
