  • Of Food And Love: Crinkle Cut Fries

     

    I cook with my kids.  I’m no pro, but I do want my kids to have a love for the kitchen and learn to respect the instruments.  This year Cy got a cookbook for Christmas and loves it.  I bought it thinking he would enjoy it, but I didn’t how much.  Score.  He’s only 5 but I can see he enjoys the power he has when I ask him what HE wants to cook or make, for any given meal.

    Last night it was crinkle cut fries.  They were so easy.  When I first spied them in the cookbook I thought I would just slice the potato instead of buying a fancy shmancy little crinkle cutter.  Well, it was only $7.99 and I’m glad I did.  It worked like a charm.  HERE is the exact one I bought.

    Cut up 3 to 4 potatoes with this nifty slicer.  Melt 3 TB of butter in the microwave, or on the stove.  Put both the butter and the sliced potatoes in a plastic bag then mix in the seasonings.  Now, here is where I went rogue.  The recipe called for some type of herbed pepper, like lemon pepper.  I just couldn’t wrap my mind around lemon pepper on my fries so I just used our old faithfuls.  Garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt(or seasoned salt), and pepper.  Take your culinary freedom, here folks.  Don’t worry about what the recipe says, season to your taste preferences.

    I made a mistake when I cut these :(   They were a little too thin.  For some reason I was worried that they would take forever to cook, but I was wrong.  Make sure your slices are at least 1/4 thick.  In the end, they were delicious.  Cylas didn’t know what to think about them because I make a mean fried potato and even though these were similar, they weren’t his “favorite potato”.  So, we may have to try these again in the future.

    Heat the oven to 450 and cook for 25 minutes or until they are lightly browned and tender.
