Crispy Store-bought Fries
Sometimes it just has to be quick, and frozen fries from the store are much faster and easier to make than from scratch.
It can be difficult to cook great fries at home, as it’s difficult to maintain the right temperature of the oil throughout the whole cooking process. If the oil is too cold the fries become greasy and if it is too hot they burn. With temperature controlled cooking, it’s much easier. You can even make the fries without preheating the oil, just add them directly to the cold oil and you’ll still get delicious crispy fries. Learn how in this recipe.
500 gram French fries, frozen
1.5 l Frying oil
0.5 tsp. Salt
Cook the fries from cold oil
Cook the fries in preheated oil
The fries are equally good whether you make them from cold or preheated oil. Both methods result in fries of the same quality.
