Flashback to last Friday when we made fries! So that makes it Fry-Day, right? Who doesn’t love fries on a Friday (or any day for that matter)?!
I was inspired recently to make fries when I was buying potatoes for a previous recipe. I discovered that a couple of hefty russets would equal the price of a 5lb back of medium-sized ones. You better believe I bought the 5lb bag! I was not afraid of their going bad at my house. Potatoes are always one of those veggies that can be in, on, under, and alongside pretty much any dish.
I also recently had been craving salty, curly fries. My favorite ones growing up were the ones from Arby’s. I haven’t been there in years, but when we do go (usually while travelling), I generally half-heartedly eat the sandwich while concentrating all my focus on a large order of their curly fries! Don’t forget the sauce! They now have them in the freezer section at Walmart, but they’re just not the same…
I’ve never really tried to make curly fries. I have the Kitchenaid Spiralizer attachment for my stand mixer, so I always had the ability, but I guess I never thought about it until I was browsing through my Pioneer Woman Come and Get It! cookbook and this curly fries recipe, well it just spoke to me. It didn’t just speak… It sung! This recipe hit the spot, but I should’ve heeded the instructions better to shake off the excess batter prior to frying.
We paired the fries with grilled True Story Organic Apple & Wildflower Honey Chicken Sausage and a little sriracha ketchup. The Mr rather prefers shoestring-style, so we may have to rustle that up sometime… What’s your favorite style?
