  • 1 cup canola or peanut oil
  • 5 russet potatoes (medium size)
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

Instructions

  1. Peel the potatoes
  2. Cut each potato in half lengthwise
  3. Then cut each half section in half again lengthwise
  4. The cut each section into about 4 strips
  5. Put the strips of potatoes into a bowl of cold water for at least 5 minutes to rinse off the starch
  6. If you want to cut the potatoes ahead of time, they can be kept in water for up to a day
  7. While the potatoes are soaking in the water you can make the sauces.For the Hot Pepper Sauce: Put the ketchup in a small bowl
  8. Dice ½ of a jalapeno
  9. If you like things spicy hot you may want to leave in the seeds
  10. Add the diced jalapeno and pepper in with the ketchup
  11. Mix together and set aside.For the Chipotle Sauce: Put the mayonnaise in a small bowl and add the adobo sauce
  12. Mix and set aside.For the Baked Potato Topping Sauce: Add the sour cream to a small bowl
  13. Dice the chive section from the green onion and add it to the sour cream along with the pepper, salt, crumbled blue cheese, buttermilk (or regular milk) and the diced garlic (optional)
  14. Mix and set aside.Cooking the French Fries: Drain the potatoes and put them on a paper towel
  15. Pat them completely dry with a paper towel
  16. Add the oil to a frying pan
  17. The quantity of oil to use depends on the diameter of your pan
  18. The oil should sit in the pan about an inch high
  19. Heat the oil on medium heat
  20. Add the strips of potatoes making sure not to crowd them in the pan.Using tongs move the potatoes around a bit as they are cooking so they cook evenly on all sides
  21. In this recipe I just fry the potatoes once until they are a light golden color
  22. This may take about 5 minutes
  23. (Another option is to fry them twice; the first time, cook them about 4 minutes until they are cooked through but are a light color
  24. Then remove them from the oil on to a paper towel
  25. Then, right before serving, put them back into the hot oil and cook them a second time for about 4 minutes until they are crispy and a light golden color).As you’re frying the potatoes, have a plate ready that has a paper towel on it
  26. As the French fries are done cooking, remove them from the hot oil and put them on the paper towel to absorb the excess oil
  27. As soon as the French fries are removed from the hot oil, sprinkle them with the seasoned salt and serve as soon as possible.
