Ingredients

  • 6 kipfler potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt

Instructions

  • Wash & dry potatoes.
  • Cut the potatoes into wedges, insuring all are equal sizes. I usually cut mine in 1/2 and then into 1/4's or if they are slightly smaller then just in 1/2 and then into 1/3's.
    Homemade Fries
  • Toss them in a small amount of oil and lay out onto a baking tray.
  • Bake in the oven at 220c for 15-20 minutes (size depending).
  • Season with salt and bask in the glory of homemade fries!

Notes

 

Essential Tools

  • chopping board
  • sharp knife
  • baking tray

Tips/Tricks

  • ensure potatoes are cut to similar size so that they cook evenly
  • if you don't have kipfler potatoes then you can substitute red skinned potatoes or fingerlings as they are similarly waxy
  • if you want a more fluffy texture to your fries then you can use russet or maris piper potatoes
  • DON'T season the potatoes before cooking them as the salt will draw out the moisture and not allow them to crisp up well
  • seasoning them as soon as they are out of the oven is a must as the salt will coat the potatoes perfectly at this stage
