Homemade Crispy Fries

Homemade Crispy FriesLike many American households, we are a family of French fry connoisseurs. Sometimes we enjoy our fries ‘shoe-string’ style, other times we eat them ‘steak’ fry style and then we have this delicious crispy fry.

The Homemade Crispy Fries recipe is similar to the potato wedges/Jo-Jos that you can buy in delis & convenience stores. Because they are oven-cooked instead of deep-fried, they are even healthier.

I serve these with a variety of different dishes, including:.
French dip
Crescent Dogs
Grilled Chicken and Peperonata Sandwiches
Barbecue Bacon Dogs

My husband dips his Homemade Crispy Fries in ketchup but I prefer ranch. What’s your preference?
