GCC Recipe Swap

It's Friday, Yay! Having teenagers in the house means lots of fast food cravings. French fries are the big ones. And since I won't take them to McDonalds every time they have a craving, my son has learned to improvise. He's come up with a great french fry recipe that I'm going to share with you.

Homemade French Fries

2 scrubbed potatoes per person
garlic salt or other flavorings

Cut your cleaned potatoes into strips. We prefer to keep the skin on. Fry at 350 in a little oil until slightly browned seasoning with garlic salt or plain salt. Then transfer to a cookie sheet and cook in the oven at 400 for 10 minutes or until tender. These are crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. Add ketchup or homemade fry sauce and you'll have satisfied teens.

Do you have a recipe you'd like to share? Please link directly to your post, not your homepage, and please include a link back here to the Grocery Cart Challenge. Have a great weekend!

I love french fries, and I have very little self control around them. Mmmm. I'm sharing a homemade veggie burger recipe this week that we ate with homemade sweet potato fries :)

That is a great idea to fry them a little before baking.
