Thursdays are my days to cook with Nico, who says he wants to be a Chef when he grows up. On Thursdays he picks the recipes, and he’s been talking about French Fries for a few weeks.
Cut russets into 3/4-inch wedges and soaked in ice bath for 45 minutes, the fries are par-cooked at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Then they are finished at 365 for 8 minutes.
Cost: $1 for two pounds of fries.
How much work? Almost none.
How big of a mess? Medium.
Start time 5:15 AM. Dinner time 6:30pm. (along with left-over lasagna)
