SFH Food 2018-03: G&G Idaho Fries

Now that you’ve read SFH Food 2018-02: The Idaho Potato, it’s finally time to make honest-to-goodness, guaranteed-to-be-great “G&G Idaho Fries” the way we do. (Oh, by the way, the G&G brand stands for Granny & Granddad, of course.)

Serving Size: Enough for two people.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 medium size, genuine Idaho potatoes (Remember Lesson Learned 04)
  • a little less than 1/4 cup olive oil
  • John’s Spice (if you don’t have any, you’ll have to be very creative)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Recipe Directions:

  1. Wash potatoes (we prefer to leave the skins on)
  2. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  3. Spray baking sheet with olive oil; wipe off excess with paper towel
  4. Slice potatoes with slicer (you decide on thin- or thick-sliced )
  5. Place sliced potatoes in large bowl
  6. Add olive oil and spices, then mix by hand (make sure paper towels are nearby to wipe your hands)
  7. Arrange potatoes on a large baking sheet

    Keep the fries separated so they don’t stick together.
  8. Place in preheated oven for at least 30 minutes (check for desired color and crispness)
  9. Remove from oven and serve  – Don’t forget the fry sauce – enjoy!

The New York strip steak was grilled outside while the fries were in the oven.
