I've been busy working on home improvements this week. We are painting the dining room and ripping up old carpet...then moving on to the living room. In the meantime people still eat around here. So here's a great recipe to keep in the freezer for when you're hungry kids are wanting a junk food kind of snack and you're busy painting...or whatever. Shhh. Don't tell them these are actually good for them or it might take all the fun out of it.
Homemade Frozen French Fries
Seasoning (cajun, seasoning salt, or whatever your family likes)
Peel potatoes and cut into french fries. Put raw potatoes in a ziploc bag with seasoning and oil and shake to coat. You could also just use a bowl and stir it all together. Bake on a cookie sheet at 425 until done. Let cool and then place whole cookie shot in freezer until frozen solid. Remove from cookie sheet and store in a ziploc bag or plastic container. To reheat, scoop out the amount that you want, and reheat at 425 until done. (about 15-20 minutes). A $3 bag of potatoes makes several batches versus one pre-made store bought bag that cost about $3 for one serving. Can't beat that!
