OK - now I know what will be for dinner tomorrow. Fries and a burger and a cold grass cutting beer. Real food:>)

Gotta agree that every time a fast food place tries to be 'healthier' I go there less - now hardly at all.

If I want healthy I'll eat a salad - gimme great-tasting garbage at food joints.

Didnt read all the posts, but best way to deep fry fries, cut & dry potatoes into frys , deep fry for one minute so cooked inside, take out, fries will be white ..good let sit, them put them back to brown & crisp ..perfect fries.

yep, my mother cooked French fries in hot oil- Crisco ? probly

one of my favorite meals

to cook the French fries in lard or Crisco today,, is akin to smoking a Marlboro, the health food Nazi's
will shame and shun you!!

in the thousands of "what for dinner" postings,,,is there one saying they cooked French fries in oil???

I prefer my fries cut thick.. that way you get a lovely crisp outer layer and inside is heavenly and soft.. perfect!

Ree Drummond does double fries. Once to get them cooked inside and then again to get crispy on outside. A bit messy but they really do taste good.

She says soak them in water first.

Yep, we always soaked them in water after peeling and cutting the potatoes into fries. Then dipped them in hot Crisco in the Fry Daddy! Wonder what I did with that Fry Daddy? It's been years.

I do. Along with biscuits made with lard. It's something about lard that enhances the flavor

Gonna sound ridiculous here but where is lard in the store? Next to Cricso? I see Ree using chunks of the stuff and it looks like it is packaged similar to cream cheese.

I haven't noticed. I wouldn't be surprised if it's in a shelf below the crisco
