Thin & Crispy French Fries Recipe

Thin & Crispy French Fries Recipe


  • 4 Large Russet Potatoes
  • Canola Oil
  • Fine Sea Salt
  • Dash of Pepper
  • Large Brown Paper Bag


This particular recipe calls for a fryer, but you can replicate using a dutch oven. Start by cleaning your potatoes and cutting them into thin slices. Place your uncooked fries into a large bowl of water for about 30 mins prior to cooking. After the potatoes are done soaking, empty the water and dry very well! If the potatoes still have water the oil will splash when the potatoes are put into the fryer. Fill your fryer with the appropriate amount of oil and wait until the temperature reaches 375-400 degrees. 

Place a handful of fries into your basket, do not over-crowd as they will not cook properly {basket size varies depending upon fryer size}. Cook until golden brown and crispy {about 10 mins}. Once fries are done cooking, transfer to a large brown paper bag and add sea salt and dash of pepper. Fold over the top of the bag and shake vigorously. Serve immediately!
