This homemade seasoned fries recipe is perfect for serving up to four people, making it an ideal treat for gatherings or family movie nights. Plus, there are no dietary restrictions or health concerns to worry about, so everyone can indulge in these crispy potato sticks without guilt!
The secret behind these savory Pommes Frites lies in the ingredients. We’re using 2 lbs of russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch sticks. These starchy potatoes are perfect for achieving that crispy exterior and fluffy interior we all crave in our Belgian fries recipe. The seasoning blend consists of sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried thyme, and crushed dried rosemary – a mouthwatering combination that elevates these homemade double-fried potatoes to new heights.
Now let’s dive into the instructions for this crispy seasoned potato sticks recipe! Start by washing and peeling your russet potatoes before cutting them into 1/4-inch sticks. Soak the potato sticks in cold water for at least 30 minutes to remove excess starch – this is key for achieving maximum crispiness! Next, heat 4 cups of vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large heavy pot to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Drain the potato sticks and pat them dry with paper towels before carefully frying them in batches until cooked through but not yet browned. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
Once all batches have been fried once, increase the oil temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and fry the potato sticks again until they are golden brown and crispy. This double frying technique is what gives these Belgian-style fries their irresistible crunch! Finally, toss the hot fries with the seasoning mixture until evenly coated and serve immediately.
And there you have it – Savory Parisian Pommes Frites that will transport your taste buds straight to a quaint European bistro. These herb-seasoned French fries are perfect for sharing with friends and family, or even just treating yourself to a little culinary adventure at home. So go ahead, indulge in these crispy double fried potatoes and let TheKitchen.ai whisk you away on a flavorful journey! Bon appétit!
